QuaranTEENed – Sorry, We’re Closed

By Addie Bassin and Jonathan Morris

Regular school days, student clubs and activities, along with major school events have been canceled or postponed due to the pandemic. In this episode of QuaranTEENed, we take a look at student and faculty reactions to the uncertainty of the future regarding their missed opportunities and activities. Specifically highlighted in this episode is athletics, CESJDS’ a cappella group Shir Madness, Jewish youth groups, and annual events such as Zimriyah, the middle school musical and Art’s Chai Lights. This episode features interviews from Director of Athletics Coach Becky Silberman, Vocal Music Teacher Aaron Dunn, High School Principal and Associate Head of School Marc Lindner and Director of Arts Education David Solomon. Student interviews include juniors Benny Rushfield, Eilah Goldberg and Sophie Krantz, sophomore Ariella Ball, and freshman Eitan Malkus.

QuaranTEENed will have a new episode each week of distance learning to revisit this unprecedented chapter in student life. If you would like to be interviewed for an upcoming episode, email [email protected] or contact one of the reporters.
