Note that all staff members were socially distancing and COVID free when these pictures were taken.  Warning: Staff members may look different than the pictures posted above in their classrooms as many teachers had been wearing a facial mask all year, have not shaved or cut their hair, and might have binged on Twinkies and Ben and Jerry’s while teaching from home last year. Just saying.

Tenga en cuenta que todos los miembros del personal se distanciaban socialmente y no tenían COVID cuando se tomaron estas fotos. Advertencia: Los miembros del personal pueden verse diferentes a las imágenes publicadas arriba en sus aulas, ya que muchos maestros pueden usar una máscara facial durante todo el año, no se han afeitado ni cortado el cabello, y podría haber estado comiendo Twinkies y Ben y Jerry’s mientras enseñaba desde casa el año pasado. Solo decir.
