As we all know, the coronavirus for the state pf Massachusetts is worsening. Massachusetts is the 3rd highest state with the Coronavirus in the country. This a very scary, difficult time. I know for myself, focusing on online school is difficult when i’m hearing about everything that’s going on around me. For many of RPHS students, they most likely know someone who has or had the coronavirus, and that’s a difficult thing to grasp. It’s hard to focus on our algebra work or our history work when so much is going on. Although our education is extremely important, I don’t think it’s fair that we’re trying to pretend life is normal, going on with online school, discussing ancient history and chemistry while the world around us is falling apart. This isn’t a time to focus on academics. This is a time to stick together and try to stay relaxed. For me, personally, my mother had a scare as she was in close proximity to three people who tested positive for the Coronavirus. Thankfully, she quarantined herself and she was fine the entire time. It was difficult to focus on school during that time, and I know i’m not the only one. Online school adds so much stress to students in a time where everything feels surreal and scary. Many students also have many chores and siblings to take care of, I have a friend who has 3 younger siblings and has to watch them while juggling online school work. If you agree that RPHS should consider canceling online school until things improve, sign this and share. This is a terrible time and our first priority should not be math equations.
