With the epidemic came a lot of uncertainty, but our team at the Abaarso School of Science & Technology took it as an opportunity to rebuild our academic program and the operational systems of the school. One of those systems that needed revamping involved students’ ability to sign in to different spaces on campus. In late March, we began looking at different opportunities and landed on the idea of student ID cards.
When we received the green light from our state and local government to open our summer camp for the 2020 season, we knew there would be changes, challenges, and opportunities ahead. We anticipated many of these challenges for months—reducing the number of children in a cohort, increasing time outdoors, and increased sanitization procedures.
