We wondered at the start of the year how it would work to bring hundreds of students into classrooms at a time when face masks and a six-foot social distancing were needed. Should students learn from home, as they did in the last few months of the previous school year? If they came to school, how safe would they be?
One way or another, the local school districts managed. Schools in the Fairmont area have made every effort to use distance learning and in-person models with face masks, and to sanitize school rooms and equipment frequently.
The challenges each faced made this year a difficult one, but these challenges make the successful conclusion all the more triumphant.
We salute those who have helped make this school year a reality and we hope, through vaccination for all, that the following school years will return to normal.
Congratulations to all of our graduates in the region.
