Students at Chillicothe High School have been taking courses at home since March 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The week prior, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued schools to begin distance learning for a three-week period, which has since been extended to May 1, 2020.
Yearbook staff member Hannah Shoemaker recently conducted distanced interviews with a couple of CHS students to see how they are coping with the stay-at-home order.
