The newspaper staff meets early Monday morning to plan this issue.

The Corona Virus has become commonly knowledge at an alarming pace. It has taken over the world today.

Schools across the globe have shut down their buildings and have instead taken on the task of online learning.

This reporter is here to find out if students are loving or hating this new development.

Senior Noah Smith said, “It’s kinda [frustrating] because you don’t get face to face interaction with teachers, and also it’s sometimes hard to stay on top of your assignments when you are getting a ton of emails.”

Noah was not the only senior to feel this way. Abby Finlayson said, “Online school has been very different. I am a very hands-on learner, and I like having a lot of notes. With online school, I feel like I am not learning much.”

However, Abby also said, “There isn’t really anything else we could change, and the teachers are doing a great job adjusting!”

Junior Sammi Cofer agreed.  “ I like online school more than public school because I get to do things at my own pace, and I don’t have to feel ashamed to ask questions in front of the whole class.”

Sophomore Josie Stadel added, “I miss seeing my friends, coaches, and teachers every day. This is making us realize what we take for granted. Other than that, I am actually enjoying online school. We can do our work on our own time and it’s a lot easier to focus. It’s nice to get the week’s work all at once and be able to finish it in a day or two. All in all, this is a blessing in disguise. It’s making us stronger and teaching us many lessons.”

Overall, the students are coping with this new learning development, but hope to be back in school by August.
