When Gibraltar Secondary School students eventually return to the classroom, their school day will look a little different than they remember it. Superintendent Tina Van Meer says students will have only two classes a day, an AM and a PM session to limit the amount of exposure students will have with each other as they switch classes.
Despite the challenges of being in the virtual classroom for longer periods, the good news according to Van Meer is that students have been actively participating off-camera by turning in their tests and assignments on time. She adds that once students do return to in-person learning that teachers for specials like gym and art will still conduct their classes virtually to limit exposure. Van Meer hopes students can return to the classroom soon, but based on the current threshold plan they will remain remote learning until at least November 6th.
