Spring Break and Coronavirus

Well, today we got the news that school is canceled until at least the 7th. We all saw this coming it was just a matter of when. Throughout the past few days, my teachers have had us take home everything in case we have to stay home.

Today it was a really weird vibe in school. During every class, we talked about it. Every teacher told us the same thing there is so much that we still don’t know and not jump to conclusions or listen to the rumors.

Today in humanities a girl got a text from her sibling who goes to LT (the high school that our school feeds into and I’m going to next year) that they were canceling school until the seventh. Our teacher was pulled into the hallway and our whole class started talking. We were all excited, scared, and curious about what would happen. She wouldn’t tell us anything for sure but said we should definitely bring home anything we may need for any classes.

Then, in social studies, everything was much weirder. You could tell everybody was kind of stressing out including my teacher. We eventually got the final confirmation that we would have to do online school starting Wednesday. We basically spent the next two hours of the day talking about what everything would look like and were told not to worry.

I feel like the first few days will be fun and then I will start to really miss school and my friends. I realized today that while I do work in school I like to talk and work with other people. Like today in math we were studying for a quiz we are supposed to have Monday and I just talked to my friends the whole time but I was very productive also so that will be different.

I know that I’m not going to die if I get sick but I’m still kind of scared and anxious about it for some reason. Also, we aren’t going on Spring Break anymore but I still know that we will be able to have lots of fun. I will just be very different. I will need to get into a new routine otherwise I will lose my mind and that wouldn’t be fun. I want to start doing yoga or going for runs to stay active. This will definitely be a fun story to tell my kids when I’m older.


Also, I thought I was going to die over spring break but I didn’t know it would be from corona. I thought more like dehydration or getting eaten by a snake. Both of which are still possible I guess.

  1. Hi Zoe,
    Thanks for your letter telling us about what is happening in your school.
    Can you tell me a little bit about how that works with e-schooling? We never had this kind of opportunity when I was a young girl. I would love to hear what you do and how it works. And to her what your personal experience was like to use it.
    I pray that non of your family will get sick and that you will be able to go back to school as soon as possible.
    Will your Mom and Dad still have to go to the school or do they work from home too?

    Thanks for your help in educating me.

    Sincerely Yours,

    1. To be honest I don’t totally know what it will look like. I do know that my teachers will post everything on google classroom and I will have to do 5 hours each day. When we officially sart on Wednesday I will write a post about that and what I had to do.
      My parents will work from home. All of the teachers need “office hours” so the kids can contact them if they need help so my parents will be doing that.


      1. Thank ypu Zoe. I appreciate what you have told me so far. When this Coronavirus is over and you are ready to go back to the building school. I would love to hear about how you did or did not like how e-learning went.

        I also am effected by this virus. I pet nanny my neighbors dogs twice a day and now that the owner has to work from home also she does not need me. So I do not know when I will go back to pet nannying again.

        I never thought I would see anything like this in my life time. Unprecidented for sure. Stay well.

        Sincerely Yours,
        Joanie Kenning
