Snow? Time to sign onto a computer

Schools in NYC switched to remote learning during the snow storm on Feb. 13.

Schools in NYC switched to remote learning during the snow storm on Feb. 13.

It has been about 2 years since the snow has introduced itself to New York City. Now usually when it’s a snowy day, there is no school, right? Children play on the snow having fun;’ others just stay inside and sleep. It’s like there is no such thing as school. But we’re all wrong. 

The year is 2024 and many things have changed since Covid-19 struck. Students across NYC are now starting to do online learning when there is a storm. I’m here writing this story to tell you that this is a whole different experience than actually getting up early and getting to school. But, this has affected people inside and outside school. So, because of this I’ve asked my mother and my sister how they see this new online learning experience and how it affects students’ learning.

“It’s a little complicated because sometimes, there’s not really good wi-fi connection and my daughters can’t work properly,” says Maribel Camacho, my mother. “ I can’t do my regular work like every other day.”

This has not only affected parents and their regular routines, but students’ routines as we like talking to friends in person, not staring at a computer for a whole 6 to 7 hours. 

Natalia Coatl Camacho, my 12-year-old sister, has a very powerful statement about how she feels about this situation and not being able to go outside like she used to. “ It’s very sad cause I have to be on a computer again,” with a disappointing look on her face. 

This is what mother nature has made us students do for today but tomorrow is a fresh start. We will never know what the future holds for each and everyone of us. Some people actually prefer online learning. Some people don’t. Or some people just don’t know what’s best for them. What do you prefer?

    It was disheartening that our students, staff, and administration did their best to prepare for the remote learning day, and yet we had so many challenges due to limitations on how many logins the NYCPS system could handle at one time. Hopefullly they’re able to sort it out for next time…

    On the other hand, they should let students enjoy snow days with their family and friends!
