ABC Action News and Bay News 9 spoke to parents and school leaders about Corbett Prep's decision to structure remote school days in the same way as in-classroom instruction.

When Corbett Prep prepared to shift to remote instruction in March, teachers needed to balance both routine and innovation. The faculty knew students would find comfort in the familiar school schedule, but they needed to figure out how best to deliver their lessons and connect to the students using technology. The result – a full day complete with live instruction from classroom and specials teachers – is resonating with parents.
Parents came to Corbett Prep with designs for various devices that could extend the lives of medical professionals' masks, make masks more comfortable or correctly position face shields.
