A row of desks lined a parking lot at Vacaville High School early Wednesday, the two dozen students sitting at them working diligently on laptops just as if they were in the classroom.
But they weren’t, which was the issue, they said, calling the peaceful protest their way of demanding that schools reopen for the year.
Since last March, the pandemic forced public schools in Solano and throughout the state to shutter and move to a distance-learning format to meet public health guidelines. The Class of 2020 lost out on their senior year, including proms, football games and graduations, and all students lost interactions with their teachers, staff and peers.
