This September, students across Sammamish woke up early and traveled to school for the first time in over a year. Students and teachers alike are experiencing an array of emotions, from excitement to nervousness. With an increase in homework, in-person tests, and the continued COVID-19 precautions, this is now the new normal of going back to school. We spoke to students and teachers to understand what re-integration to in-person learning felt like, and how they are adjusting.
