Inside Woodlawn Extra: Messages for Students

This week we reached out to the staff at Woodlawn, where KGW has been spending a year documenting life inside the school.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Teachers and staff at Woodlawn Elementary are missing their students as the COVID-19 pandemic keeps them apart. 

This week we reached out to the staff at Woodlawn, where KGW has been spending a year documenting life inside the school.

We asked each of them to record a video message to their students. They talked about what they’re doing while stuck at home and offered some advice to students. These are their messages.
