A good number of mine were virtual the majority of the year last year and it is ROUGH.
Most 6th graders last returned in person pretty quickly last year once they got hit with the culture shift from elementary to JH and saw that they weren't going to be able to keep up.
Our current 7th grade class is pretty typical, but they are still 7th graders. We usually lean on that 8th grade leadership. Not happening this year.
We're a small program, so its really taking a toll too.
