Completing schoolwork from home is routine now for students in the Emerson Public School district.
“It’s comfy. It’s warm. It’s virtual learning!” Savannah Dennehy said.
The fifth-grade student at Patrick M. Villano School completes tasks on her school-issue laptop surrounded by pillows. Teachers post asignments in Math, Language Arts, Science and/or Social Students each day at 8:30 a.m. Dennehy and her peers have until 9 p.m. to turn in those assignments to the Google Classroom.
Dennehy has been working from home since March 16 when the district moved to online learning due to the coronavirus.
