A thyroid condition, high blood pressure, and congenital heart failure couldn’t thwart Lanzell Williams-Goff’s relief of dropping her 10-year-old grandson off for class Monday morning at Stefan Manor Elementary School.
“It’s awesome. It’s great. I was ready for him to go back,” Williams-Goff said.
It didn’t matter to the ailing grandma that the hybrid back-to-school schedule is an abbreviated 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. four days a week for Vallejo’s 16 elementary schools.
“It’s been torture. This pandemic has really set our lives back and made it hard for us with the living situation, money situation and all the stress,” Williams-Goff said. “When I heard the kids were going back, I was jumping up saying ‘Thank you Jesus! Hallelujah!’”
