Student Body President Embraces Coronavirus Protocols as School Starts

Students are looking forward more than ever to returning back to school, after being out of in-person learning since early March. One of these students is Abby Aurzada, a rising senior at University Schools.

Abby lost her track season last spring, in which she pole vaults. This is one of her favorite things about school, so the loss of this season was very disappointing for her. Last spring, the typical online experience for high schools in District 6 was a mix of individual work and online meetings through platforms such as Zoom or Google Meets. Online learning occurred through most of the stay-at-home order. With less interaction with other students and teachers, students were finding it hard to stay engaged. “I had a hard time remembering all of my assignments and class times,” Aurzada says, and this was a common theme for other students as well.

Abby will be the Student Body President for University Schools this coming year, in which the Coronavirus creates a new challenge for her to balance what the student body wants while also keeping everyone safe. “I want the best for everyone, and I know everyone misses their sense of normalcy. I’m hoping to give the student body as much of their routine back as possible.”

Students will be needing masks in order to return to in-person learning. The Success Foundation will be accepting both physical and monetary donations on an ongoing basis.

A box to drop off your bag of masks will be located right inside the south doors by the Wells Fargo entrance

What sizes are available?

We have two sizes: Ages 4-12 measuring 5″X7″ and Adult Sizing for Ages 13-18.

Is the mask I have compliant?

According to the guidelines in place by the CDC, masks must be made of 100% cotton and consist of either two layers with a layer of interfacing or three layers with no interfacing.

Will the District or The Success Foundation be providing supplies?

If you have pledged to make masks, you will need to supply all the materials.

What materials do I need?

Masks need to be made from 100% tightly woven cotton and pre-washed. You will need either 2 layers of fabric and 1 layer of interfacing or 3 layers of fabric and no interfacing.

The masks will need elastic loops out of 1/8″ elastic, pantyhose, or hair ties

You can find the pattern here.

Can I choose the pattern?

No, all masks turned in need to be the pattern we have provided. You will receive a copy once you sign up to volunteer.

Can I crochet or knit a mask?

No. Knit or crocheted pieces are too loose to trap virus particles.

What if I can't find the materials needed?

JoAnn’s Fabric Store continues to receive supplies; if ordered online, they will ship as soon as available.
