MVLA High School Foundation 2020-21
If someone had told me in March of 2020 that my child would not be attending school in person for the next 12 months, I would not have believed them. If that same person explained that school would be over Zoom, I would have been incredulous. It’s remarkable how technology can make the seemingly impossible, possible. The flexibility and resilience that our children showed throughout the pandemic is inspiring. I will forever be amazed at how our children persevered under enormous stress, how the school district quickly adopted new technologies, and the teachers did their best to provide an excellent education to our children during a global pandemic. To say that it was challenging is clearly an understatement, but we made it through.
