COVID-19 has left an indelible impression on the world at large and certainly Coronado has not been spared economically or culturally. Last week two of the city’s iconic events, the Fourth of July Parade and all that day’s attendant events were cancelled. The following day Concerts in the Park was cancelled, with a glimmer of hope existing that a concert or two could be held.

Concerts President Cathy Brown provided her thoughts on what would have been the 50th Anniversary of Concerts in the Park. “The best we can hope for is maybe, and this is a big maybe, the last week of August and/or Labor Day Sunday, Sept. 6. These dates are based on the schools being back in session and we get the okay from the City. Also, only Coronado local bands would play those dates. Of course, if anything changes, and we’re allowed to have the concerts, the Board can make it happen very quickly. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year in 2021. I can’t wait to see you all again, dancing at the Concerts.” more >>

On August 18, San Diego County was removed from the state’s COVID-19 watchlist, allowing schools to reopen their facilities for in-person learning beginning September 1. On September 15, CUSD began Phase One of reopening, bringing moderate to severe special needs students back on campus. Early last week it appeared that, based on COVID-19 case numbers, San Diego County was at risk of moving from the Red Tier back into the more restrictive Purple Tier on California’s four tier color-coded tracking system. As of Tuesday, September 21 that did not occur, but the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines state that if a county moves to a more restrictive tier at any time, schools that have already opened are not required to close. Therefore, on September 18, CUSD announced plans to continue its reopening with Phase Two (grades K-5) the week of October 5.

We’re six months in to the new COVID-America and students are preparing to head back to school for the fall.

As the mother of a freshman heading to an undefined college experience, and having just finished a very stilted senior year in high school, there were two questions that seemed obvious to me ... and so I asked my freshman daughter:

What is it like when you come home from spring break your high school senior year and realize something called COVID-19 takes away all that you worked for to become an official high school graduate?

And
