Back to school during Coronavirus
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, schools were closed but learning continued through the online mode of teaching.
After nearly 11 months, the school reopened for classes 9,10,11, and 12. After hearing the news I was so excited and at the same time, sad.
Reopening of school meant waking up early in the morning and missing the comfort of home. But I was so excited to be in school with all of my friends. No more comfy clothes, gadgets, and online quizzes. But we could interact with the teacher and get our doubts clarified in person.
The day before school, I packed my bag, bought sanitizer and an extra mask, and got ready for school. I went to bed very early that day. I woke up and got ready for school. My parents dropped me at school. I usually go by van to school, but due to the pandemic, my parents are dropping me in school.
The temperature was checked at the school gate. Only 20 students are allowed to sit in a classroom. So the class was split into two. Classes happened and we got our doubts clarified. There were a lot of safety precautions followed in my school which made me feel safe and secure inside the campus.
After coming to school, I had to sanitize my bag and other belongings, which was an extra task from now on. Even though it wasn’t a normal school day, it was a new experience for me. Let us hope for the best in the upcoming days.
