Back to School: Life during COVID

Have you ever wondered what school would be like during a major pandemic? Today, I am here with Mr. Gregory and Mr. Anderson. They are both teachers at La Joya Community High School in their classrooms.

If there is anything a student should deserve, it is the ability to sit in a classroom. It should be their ability to be able to see their friends. It should be the ability for students to go to a sports event. Let’s follow the necessary precautions so that we can do these things, as a community.

Mr. Gregory was asked how he felt about students returning to school during the pandemic.

“So here is the thing, I think that with proper precaution (mask-wearing, hand sanitation, social distancing), the return is good for high school students academically and socially. I noticed students performing better in person last year in-person when we returned over when we were online.”

Mr. Gregory was also asked about what he feels are something we should do so that we can stay in school.

“Continuing of handwashing, the wearing of a mask, the pre-caution of social distancing, being aware that COVID is still happening and doing what is needed to stay safe. Even as far as staying home if you don’t feel well, stay home, get a COVID test and come back when you feel better.”

Mr. Anderson was asked what his thoughts and opinions were about the return of students to in-person classes.

“I would say that I have observed a sizeable difference in the learning gap between in-person and online. Keeping up with students in person who are sending me emails talking about having siblings learning online for 2 weeks because of COVID exposure has been difficult. It adds to pressure when students are already going through so much. We make the best of it.”

In today’s world, we are faced with many challenges. We may not like what we face, but we will get through it together. The only deciding factor is, how will you step up and help? How will you change the world? How will you be a true Lobo?
