Imagine living a day in the life of a Magellan student going to school in person during Covid-19. Well, I can because I do it. I’m Legion, and I go to Magellan International School. I’ll tell you what it’s like. When you arrive, you need to be wearing a mask and have your temperature checked before you’re allowed into the building. If your temperature is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you will be sent home.

After you get permission to go to class, you wait for your classmates at your desk. Before Covid-19, we would go to other classrooms for different classes, but now that Covid-19 is here we stay in our classroom for the safety of everyone at Magellan. In all of the classrooms, the desks are six feet apart. 

Another thing that is different this year is where we eat and play. In the past, we would eat inside the cafeteria and play on the playground and soccer field. Now, we eat outside. Since we have our masks off when we eat lunch, we have to stay more than six feet apart. We have our recess anywhere we can. Sometimes it’s the soccer field, sometimes it’s even the parking lot! We do it outside the school and everywhere.

The biggest difference for me this year is that I don’t go to school every week because I do hybrid learning. My favorite thing about online classes is that I don’t have to wake up early. I live in Kyle, and it’s an hour drive to school. My favorite thing about in-person school is that I get to see my friends. That is a day in the life of a Magellan student this year.
