2020 sparked a lot of talk on how schools will decide to reopen, and Oswego High School implemented a plan to do just that. Students were able to choose between either staying fully remote, or choosing the new hybrid learning method. We asked some students about which option they chose and why they made that decision. In a recent poll posted on the 42Fifty Instagram page, a question was posted asking if students were going to be going in-person for learning. Out of 61 total responses, 31 people said they are going back and 30 people said they are staying home.
