COVID-19 is a deadly disease that’s been spreading around the world since December 17, 2019. The disease originally came from a city in China called Wuhan with a population of 11.08 million people. The name COVID-19  stands for, ‘CO’ for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for the disease according to the World Health Organization.


Since the Corona outbreak or pandemic, businesses, schools, jobs, restaurants, and more have been insisted to be closed. By remaining at home the COVID-19 will most likely stop spreading so fast. If people go out in public they should wear a mask and gloves, and also stay away from other people by 6-feet. 


During the corona outbreak, Bowling Green Junior High School students and teachers have to remain home, social distancing, and be in quarantine. Students are to do NTI work (non-traditional instruction) and teachers are to post assignments on Google Classroom. If students prefer to work on paper, they may go and pick up assignments at their closest elementary school or at  Bowling Green Junior School.

      From our experience on social distancing and being in quarantine, Dada Mukama said, “Staying in the house is pretty tough since I’m so used to going outside.” 


“The work is harder since we don’t have instruction from the teacher directly,” said 8th grader Remember Shee.

 “I miss my friends a lot,” said 8th grader Paw Shee.


It’s been nice to be at home spending time with my three-year-old twin girls, but we are all going a little bit stir crazy. We miss being able to socialize and go places,” said  8thgrade science/math teacher Mrs. Staggs.  

I miss being able to hang out and talk to my friends since they always made school ten times better,” said 8th grader Cassandra Carmona.
