How Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter School in Rochester continues engaging students amid pandemic
At Eugenio Maria De Hostos Charter School, the hallways are clear and the classrooms are empty, but the teaching goes on.
Since mid-November, the school switched to fully remote as COVID-19 numbers rose.
“So right now our students are home, learning remotely. The teachers that need a space to teach have been invited to use the workspace here,” said Dr. Sabrina Nudo, academic director.
Prior to the recent spike, they offered in-person learning and a virtual option for students who preferred it. In the classrooms, there were precautions put in place, but creative ways to engage students, such as reminders put on doors to show students how to greet one another safely.
