Just Back From Vacation

This is a really short article this week because I am just back from vacation. I was fixing the lights on my barn and playing with my grandchild.

I noticed while I was gone that the Pandemic has maintained its pace of spread, with new hotspots, and that schools are having a really tough time deciding how to re-open. Some colleges will be changing from opening in person to all online. Hybrid may not be the answer, as the spread continues to increase. And all of our time-line expectations for when this will be over are re-adjusting to longer and longer outlooks.

The pressure on teachers to adapt their teaching and adjust their assessment is intense. The need to keep them safe is also critical.

Please be safe and take care of one another.
