Blue Ridge Elementary Students and Teachers are embracing this new world of COVID-19 online and home learning. Our teachers are amazing and have embraced their new tasks with passion, creativity, and love. Our students have shared a wide variety of emotions and feelings with us. Some enjoy being home playing video games and having downtime, but most miss their friends and teachers (and quite possibly the routine!). Google Meets and Zooms bring students and teachers together to provide connection and bring smiles and laughter through what can be a lonely time. Our paraprofessionals, nutrition staff, and bus drivers are working hard to get meals to students as well as connecting with students through calls and snail-mail.
My favorite teacher (my mom) said, “We can’t change what is happening, but we CAN control how we react. We, teachers, love our kids and each other, we will show that love through this unprecedented time!” We are proud of the love we see in our BRES Staff!
