Holy Childhood students welcome the chance to spend more time in the classroom

Sky Amish goes to school at a community classroom at the Genesee Valley Regional Market in Henrietta.

Since August, Amish, who is 18, and most of the other 100-plus students enrolled at Holy Childhood have been attending in-person classes just two days a week, many of them at the school’s main campus on Groton Parkway in Henrietta.

The other three days, they were learning remotely.

Amish is not a fan of getting virtual lessons on a laptop.

“Kinda tricky … it’s kinda crazy,” he said.

His classmate, Corynn Dunton, also 18, agrees.  They’re both excited about a new hybrid plan that started this week: four days a week in the classroom and one day at home.

“I’m ready for it ’cause I don’t like doing school online at home,” Dunton said.

School program director Dave Halpern said a lot of thought went into the decision and it seemed like the right time for the transition to mostly in-person learning.
