Slice of Life Day 12
These past two weeks have felt eternally long! Like I am on repeat and everyday is slightly the same and I am not getting any closer to the end. The last two weeks have been especially stressful waiting for a final count on students returning to school 5 days a week. This is the parents last selection choice for the year. We thought we knew what the numbers would be. That the remote students wouldn’t come back. These parents were set on taking the extra precautions and intent on keeping their kids remote. But then they changed their mind… 1, 2, 3, 4, maybe 5! They keep coming! Now, don’t get me wrong, I want kids back. It is where they learn best, but where do I put them all?!! How do I keep them safe and distanced? Especially the ones who have been home since last March! These kids and families I worry about the most. Do they know what my class will look like? I am constantly checking for the updated numbers. Constantly thinking about what furniture can go and where all the desks should be placed. What if I have to change rooms? What if I have to split up my kids? How do I choose? How will the parents feel? So many things are out of my control. So many decisions that will not be up to me. So many changes. So many unknowns. I just want to know!
