“It feels like the pandemic has lasted forever. It has gone on so much longer than I ever thought. My experience with distant learning has been pretty fun, like getting to be home more and use digital tools that I can’t use in class. But there's also been some downsides to distant learning. I don't get to see my friends and I miss after school activities.
I'm really hoping that we get back to school soon because I miss all my friends and I miss my school in general. Also I hope that when we get back to school, I'll be able to go back to my normal ways and hopefully that we don't have to wear masks in school. I just want things back the way they were.”- Grace, 9
