As we all know, Covid cases are rising by the second because of the new Omicron variant. The common question among students is, “Are we going back to Virtual School?” What do students think about going back to virtual? Some students did not like learning online.

“No,” 7th grader Josie Runyan says, “I did not like it.” Where on the other hand, Natalie Basista enjoyed virtual learning, “I enjoyed it because it gave me more freedom on my work, and I was able to do work in my time, from the time it was assigned to the time it was due.” 

On January 13, 2022, we had 17 student cases and 2 teacher Covid cases. West has been taking certain precautions to reduce the spread, including students not being able to attend basketball games and spacing kids out in lunch and in classes. It is most likely learning will stay in-person or face-to-face.
