Installation of new desks leads to flexible instruction day

Mrs. Diane Gimpel
New desks with red chairs fill every classroom at Carroll after they were installed during a flexible instruction day last week.

Last Tuesday, all Carroll students stayed at home for Flexible Instruction Day (FID).

FID was a day where workers made various improvements to the school building. Some of these improvements included new desks for many classrooms and the renovation of Room 200.

I feel like the renovations make the school feel cleaner and more modern,” said Alan Pham.

Meanwhile, all students stayed home and received assignments from their teachers so that the day could be counted as a school day. 

“I personally love the idea of taking a break from going to the actual school area to be able to do school work,” said Nathan Moc. “I believe that my school work productivity had tremendously skyrocketed during and after fid.”

Renovations around the school have been made ever since the start of the school year. As of now, workers continue to improve the building without causing students to stay home from school.
