What Will Happen to School Now?

Jack Engel, Feature Editor

At the beginning of the month, scary news began to arise. This news was that the coronavirus was coming to the U.S. Many began to ask questions like what is the Coronavirus, and will it hurt us. Coronavirus is an infectious disease that attacks the respiratory system, causing flu-like symptoms such as fever, a plugged nose, and a nasty cough. While this is scary news there is a bright side to this. This disease has a significantly low fatality count compared to past diseases that have the U.S. As the month went on we began to hear how cases kept on getting closer and closer, pretty soon our school released a statement addressing what we will be doing about the disease. Lakes announced that we will be closed until April 7th. April 7th was chosen because it gives enough time for the disease to go through a gestation period and eventually die, or at least this the hope. During this same time, schools in surrounding states have begun to close their schools for the rest of the year and remain fully on e-learning. While we wait to hear what Lakes plan is for the future, I urge all students to wash their hands multiple times a day and practice social distancing. Stay positive, we will all get through these tough times together.
