Massillon junior Taylor Grant reflects on first half of school year

Written by Mamie M. Arndt

Editor’s note: The Canton Repository asked a student from Washington, GlenOak and Alliance high schools to share their experiences of going to school during the coronavirus pandemic. In August, the students shared their back-to-school experiences and now they’re giving us an update because the school year is at its halfway point. This is a look at Taylor Grant’s experience during the first half of the school year as a junior at Washington High School:

The school year is already halfway over and things are just as bizarre as they were when it first started.

Despite this, I feel that I have adapted well to the changes. It may sound crazy, but sometimes this school year feels completely normal. I find it odd to look back and remember school years without COVID-19 or mask mandates. Most of the time, I forget I’m even wearing my mask because I’m just so used to it.
