As we wrap up our 13th day of not being in session it is amazing the turbulent amount of information that has been shared, changed, shared again and then reconsidered by all the experts. The best example I can share is the one with do we or don't we wear masks. The CDC and WHO both stated quite clearly two weeks ago that this was a waste as healthy individuals did not need to take that precaution. Today, we have Los Angeles and New York asking all individuals to wear masks for their own safety and the safety of others. Missouri will break the 2000 confirmed cases by the end of the week and more than likely have at least 20 deaths. These numbers are a long ways from some of the losses being felt in other areas of our country. Please stay calm and continue working with your students, as this affects everyone in different ways.
