For a few hours Wednesday morning, a parking lot at Vacaville High School served as an “outdoor classroom” for an estimated 50 students of all ages.
Camped out with laptops at tables and desks, on tailgates and even on blankets on the ground, students shared a unifying message — Reopen the schools.
“Basically, we just want to get back to class,” said Kyle Fien, 14. “School is not really school.”
Kyle and fellow Vaca High freshmen Brody Fortunati and Micah Navarro, also 14, all said they just want to get back into the groove of learning. Distance learning is hard and there are a lot of distractions, they pointed out. The solution — returning to in-person learning.
