On March 31st, New York students and teachers got the dreaded call that their spring break will be canceled.  Although students have not been present in the school building, they have been doing remote learning.  Out of the three weeks we’ve been home, we’ve only had 3 days off which were considered snow days. So, students have been doing all the work but they still have to do work on the days that were considered Spring Break.  This is also a struggle for the staff because even before these circumstances they were also supposed to have off, and they’ve been working incredibly hard to support us remotely.  This is a struggle for many people in our community as they planned to be off and spend time with family.  For most students and staff, Spring Break was the only thing keeping them motivated.  Online school has put more stress on students because they are waking up to tons of school notifications and sometimes have technical issues which prevents them from accessing the proper learning programs.  With many parents still working or working full time from home, they are struggling to help their kids with schoolwork. This situation is unfair because students and staff have been working through this the whole time with the expectation that they will have a break soon.  If they have remote learning as scheduled and have the break we would still meet the 180 days required for a whole school year.  Therefore, this is unfair to students and staff.  Thank you for your time and I hope you will join us to fight for what’s fair.
