Adapting to school during COVID-19 isn't easy. The Seattle Times has a story from central Washington's Wenatchee and Eastmont high schools on how staff and students are managing their return in 2021.
The work has been worth it, Eastmont Principal Lance Noell told the Times, saying it was "like walking into a dark room and turning on the light."
"Completely rejuvenating. We are recharged. We feel like we're educators again. It has been spectacular," Noell said.
But what caught my eye in the story was the photo of band students at Wenatchee High School who were using small personal tents, complete with clear plastic windows, for their classes, which worked a little better for the players of some instruments (think the flute) than others. As PN Special Projects Editor Jordan Vitick put it: That poor sousaphone player.
