With school closures due to the coronavirus, seniors across the country have had quite an end to their high school careers. Zoom became the new classroom setting as virtual lessons and testing became the new norm. While missing milestones such as prom and graduation were a disappointment, Windermere Preparatory School’s senior class navigated the changes with grace. The school congratulates all students on their accomplishments as they enter a new phase in their lives.
