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.
