Found out last night, we're off for 3 weeks, week 4 is return date but it's spring break so...we're off for 1 month!!!

Leaving today felt very odd. No students today. 1/2 day for staff. Staff planned online resources for parents to use. Building open for morning so students/parents could come get materials if they could. A few of mine came. Just weird to think we won't be back for at least a month. Quote from district is we're working from home but really? Yes, I brought some manuals home and my plan book. Yes, we get paid. Provisions are being made to get food to families who rely on the schools to feed their children 2/3 of their daily meals.

Just unbelievable.

You can get some much needed rest and do some real spring cleaning rather than waiting till summer. You might as well look for the positives.

I think itís VA... my county is closed until April 14. We had 306 students absent today. I had a meeting at our admin building today, but we were dismissed back to school to help prepare.

We emptied all student desks, cleared all surfaces, unplugged everything- basically like the last day of school. Fortunately we had a bad feeling yesterday and sent home some packets. Our principal urged us to be creative with technology- that even if itís only a few students that we reach, itís better than none. Iím actually talking to some teachers now about doing some read alouds for some younger students.

It definitely felt very surreal and depressing. Very apocalyptic.
