the story

The coronavirus has spread through the community surrounding Central, and the school makes some changes while the kids learn about COVID. Then Hailey and the other students are sent home. What will they do?

Make a “Pandemic Plan” with Hailey, a “Daily Schedule” with Aidan, do a “Thought Hunt”, and start a “Feelings Journal”. Also, find out what the other kids are up to while they are at home!
