Six Month Quarantine Reflection

March 13 was the last day that students were in school for in-person instruction. Six and a half months later, students are still doing distance learning and it’s unclear when in-person instruction will begin. For many students, this pandemic has been a tough adjustment with many staying home and away from friends to avoid catching the coronavirus that has killed 6,551 people in Los Angeles County alone as of Sept. 29. We asked teens what they have noticed about themselves during these months as they reflect on their time in quarantine.
