Milford High School, in Massachusetts, developed detailed return-to-school plans and safety procedures in preparation for this school year. School administrators proactively communicated to students and families about what returning to classrooms would look like. But even the best laid plans can go awry if students flouted rules and protocols.
Jen Brown, an English teacher at Milford, had this concern as the school year approached. “Leading up to the beginning of school, my anxiety was hyping up the closer we got,” she recalled. “This was not because the administration wasn’t giving us tools or asking us questions. Everyone was doing the best that we could. It was such an unknown situation, so I immediately started to worry. The biggest thing was the whole X factor of the students. How are students going to buy in?”
Despite these concerns, Milford opened its doors for in-person instruction with a hybrid model on September 10.
