I’ve been asked, “How’s school going?” more times since COVID-19 blew up our lives than in the previous 37 years I’ve been a Palm Beach County high-school teacher. For anyone wanting a behind-the-scenes answer, this is mine:

When schools closed March 13, 2020 “until at least March 30,” fortunately, I had the foresight to lug home a dozen big notebooks filled with worksheets and tests I had created over the years.

On March 19, 2020, the school board announced, “Virtual instruction will launch on Tuesday, March 31. Teachers will prepare on Monday, March 30, after spring break.”

I don’t remember even hearing of Google Classroom before March 2020, but from March 31 until May 29, 2020, I was required to post and grade assignments in this cyber classroom.
