Returning to class will be different from what we were used to. However, I believe the Wilkes county school plan is a good idea because we won’t lose classes completely.
The last months of classes were stressful and confusing since most of the students, including myself, were not used to doing online classes. There were some inconveniences such as the connection to the internet, and some of us do not have a computer at home. There is still a risk but I agree with the plan.
One reason is that the teacher will explain the assignments for the next day so we will understand and won’t be confused. Secondly, it is a good plan if they continue with the safety measures like wearing masks and keeping six feet apart.
I do not like to wear a mask for too much time because it is uncomfortable, but I know that it is necessary to stay healthy.
Furthermore, I might not be on the same schedule as all of my friends, but at least I will get to see some of them.
Finally, if parents do not want to send their child to school, they have a second option of all online learning, but they should know that online classes are not the same as in person. In conclusion, I think that we can support the governor’s plan and try to do our best in the schools.
