School is back April 5

School is opening for kids K-5 here in Everett after a year of being closed is cause for rejoicing.

Parents are rejoicing. Teachers are jubilant. Students are ecstatic.

How could it be otherwise?

Social distancing and restrictions notwithstanding, the reopening of public schools here is a sign that this spring will be a fun time to come alive again and to bloom — and we’re not talking about flowers.

The pandemic has stunted social growth which is an integral part of the public schooling experience.

Kids have gone for a year locked up in their apartments and their houses with their parents and maybe their grandparents, all revved up with nowhere to go. That ends
April 5 early in the morning.

Let us all understand how fortunate we are to be getting done with this pandemic.
