For many of us, COVID-19 will be one of the defining moments of our lifetime. Right now, the world is delineating time in terms of pre-COVID and post-COVID. It has completely, fundamentally changed many of the societal norms we have known all of our lives, and taken away some of what we enjoy.
St. Peter’s School is not an exception to this phenomenon. When we were forced to close the building suddenly in March, our resolve as a community was tested. And we believe that we came out on top, despite all the obstacles of quarantine, distance learning, and the “new normal” that we all had to accept seemingly overnight. Our spring of challenge was followed by a summer of continued precautions and civil unrest. We spent the last few months as a community having hard but necessary conversations about who we are and who we want to be in the future.
