Covid 19 has altered our school year drastically in Ames. We started with 100% on line learning for the first 2 weeks and today we go into a well thought out hybrid plan which puts students back in the classrooms on a percentage basis. I am certainly glad I have no school age children in my life to worry about and yet I worry about all of them. Knowing that the best possible conditions have been created for all, students, faculty and staff it haunts me because it may not be good enough. I have had to resign myself as to the importance of schools, not just as an academic institute but also, now, a limited social activity. My fervent hope is that things will work out better than I expect with no major incidents. This is one time I hope my fears are baseless, sometimes I'm more than happy to be wrong.
