Students Divided on Virtual Days

Alyshia Pearce, Staff Writer

Schools may need to shut down for many reasons like for snow days, to many sicknesses, not enough teachers, lose of power, or anything else that could be possible. Ever since Covid-19 started virtual days have became a big thing for schools. Once high schools use all there snow days they have to start doing virtual days, but are virtual days really necessary?

I have interviewed a few people on this to understand what there thoughts are for virtual learning days. I asked them each 6 questions. The questions include “are virtual days necessary”, “If school is ever cancelled should we have a virtual day or not?”, “Do you think virtual days are effective? Do they still help you learn?”, “If we end up having a virtual day would you do your work?”, “What are some pros and cons on virtual days?”, and “What are your own opinions on virtual days or do you have anything else you would like to say?”

I interviewed Aundrea Whitmoyer. She thinks virtual days are necessary and if we run out of snow days then we should have virtual days. She thinks virtual days are effective, but also knows a lot of people hate them, however she thinks they still help you learn. She would do her work if we had an online learning day. Some pros of virtual days is we won’t have days from summer taken away from us and some cons is not seeing friends or having any real interactions.

I interviewed Jamya. She doesn’t think virtual days are necessary and doesn’t think we should have virtual days if we run out of snow days. She doesn’t think virtual days are effective or helps you learn. She wouldn’t do her work if we had an online learning day. Some pros of virtual days if us getting to stay home, sleep, and do whatever we want. Soem cons is having to do work online.

Aundrea is a student who likes virtual dats and enjoys them. Jamya is a student who doesn’t like virtual days and thinks we shouldn’t have them. Everyone has there own opinions on virtual days and some thinks there necessary and others think there not. Some people don’t learn anything, while others do.
