How did I learn about Covid 19?
By DeeAnnie S. – Age 8
Well I heard that it started in December because my Mom told me. I don’t know the full story but I do know that it has become very serious. I didn’t think much of it and thought that it would go away. But boy, was I wrong!
Literally two weeks after I found out, Schools started closing down. I couldn’t go to the drive-thru store or even go to my after school programme. Covid 19 had become a Pandemic, everyone started panicking including the grown-ups, and I was ordered to stay home.
While in quarantine I found myself pretty bored. I didn’t know what to do besides my online classes I’d been taking. I didn’t like online classes as much as I liked real school, because in online classes there were a lot of computer problems with the website and so I couldn’t hear my classmates or my teacher. In real school I don’t have that problem. Another concern about online classes is that I have to press certain buttons for people to hear me or see me. In real school I just have to show up and talk and there are no problems .
While in quarantine the summer break started, so I stopped taking online classes. My mom found me a nice summer school I can attend, they do social distancing there so it’s safe. That brings us to this point, summer is almost over and online classes are coming back. In conclusion I don’t like online classes, but I’m OK with doing it because I understand that we don’t have a choice right now. I hope they find a cure or a vaccine soon. I also hope that I can go back to school and feel safe in the new normal.
