U.S. Rep. Fred Upton will be on the campus of Glen Oaks Community College at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 9 to announce a $900,000 grant to implement a safe, effective, and cost-efficient distance learning model for all Glen Oaks students.
Due to what Interim Superintendent Nikki Nash called “ongoing community spread of both COVID-19 and other seasonal illnesses,” Three Rivers High School, Middle School, and Hoppin Elementary will temporarily transition to remote learning on Friday.
WSV Columnist Steph Hightree writes, “Most of all, I have learned I never want to be a teacher, and that teaching is a thankless profession. We really need to give these teachers a little more grace and credit than we are giving them in this unprecedented time. Teaching in a normal environment is hard enough but teaching remotely during a pandemic? It’s nearly impossible.”
