During this coronavirus situation, a lot of things that are usually a normal thing have been changed to the new normal.

With stay-at-home orders, folks can't go do things they may have just taken for granted like going out to eat, visiting with friends, and attending events like the concerts and festivals Southwest Louisiana is known for.

One of those things is school. Since the stay-at-home order was issued back on March 13, 2020, schools and universities have been shut down. When that happened. one of the big questions raised was what about graduating seniors in high school and college?
