Ontario Students Return to Class

The sacrifices Canadians have been making are working to stop the spread of the virus. Ontario reported only 1,172 more virus cases on Wednesday (after counting 1,969 and 1,848 cases in previous days) prompting the provincial government to announce that schools in Toronto, Peel Region and York Region will reopen for in-person learning on Monday, February 16th, while students in Durham and Halton regions and those outside of the Greater Toronto Area will return to classroom this coming Monday, February 8th.

The pandemic has been scary for kids, and the nervousness of returning to class can be eased if teachers in Ontario follow the lead of Jennifer Birch Pierson, a Kindergarten teacher from Texas, who followed guidelines to have all desks 2m apart, with shields in front of each one. But Pierson used cardboard, paint, and a little creativity to turn desks into Jeeps that look like they’re all driving down the road.
