The newly-adapted normal for school has changed the way students are learning, communicating with teachers and friends, and even eating their lunch.

But just as the teachers and administrators haven’t stopped doing their jobs, school’s kitchens and those who work in them haven’t stopped either.

On May 1, the School Nutrition Association (SNA) has celebrated school nutrition professionals with School Lunch Hero Day for the past eight years.

The option of students and staff being able to see those smiling, cheerful lunch ladies while going through the line each day may have changed, but their mission of keeping students fed with nutritional, balanced diets is on-going, proudly supporting the SNA’s title for them—Superheroes.

Medical personnel keeping connected

Medical personnel keeping connected

Despite a lack of in-person appointments due to COVID-19 measures, medical personnel are keeping in touch with their patients through video and phone calls.

The new normal is anything but normal.

Doctors and nurses on the front lines of medical facilities are constantly adapting to the daily changes occurring throughout the world.

COVID-19 took the regularity of how medical facilities run and forced changes in protocols and in-patient appointments, while instilling a new sense of fear and anxiety.

However, county clinics and local hospitals aren’t feeling the brunt of COVID-19 patients as much as larger cities and areas are.

“We live in a rural community and we’re pretty self-isolated anyway. Places having issues are where they’re densely populated,” James Ohrt, MD at Sutton Family Practice/Henderson Healthcare, said.

State journalism looked a bit different this year, due to the current pandemic. There are two parts to the annual competition, the first being preliminary entries sent in by high school journalism advisers. The second occurs at state journalism when selected students compete in up to two events prior to the final judging.

Since the second part of the competition could not occur, students’ work from the preliminary entries were the sole identifiers for the NSAA State Journalism top eight medalists in each of the 25 events, April 22.

Sandy Creek, which earned sixth overall in the Class C sweepstakes with 170 points, had three state champions, including Jacob Hagemeier, Newspaper Column Writing; Christoph Rolf, Infographics; and Maddie Witmer, Photo/Artistic Illustration. Witmer also snagged a fourth-place medal in Advertising.
