That was the apt comment given by a staff member at Ormstown Elementary School concerning the last day of classes. Teachers and school staff across the Valley waved goodbye to busses full of excited students as they headed out for summer vacation last Wednesday. The happy send-off capped a lengthy 2020-2021 school year that saw the introduction of hybrid and online learning, face masks, class bubbles, and a mountain of pandemic-related challenges that were surmounted daily by valiant school staff and personnel, who did it all while putting the needs of students above their own COVID-related worries.
