Las Cruces Public Schools: Reflecting on lessons learned

The Las Cruces Public Schools offices will be closed Fridays during the months of June and July, and in a strange way, these closures are COVID-related. As our world begins to return to some semblance of pre-COVID normalcy, we often find ourselves asking how we can apply some of the lessons learned to help us face what comes next. Prior to the pandemic, if you had asked me about the possibility of working from home, I would have jumped at the chance. It seemed like a permanent vacation; no commute, no interruptions, no problem!

Watch This El Paso Gender Reveal Go Hilariously Wrong

I'm not really sure why gender reveals became a thing. It used to be that you went to the OB/GYN, had an ultrasound, came home and then made the phone calls to your family and friends to tell them what you were going to have. "Hey Mom and Dad, it's a boy!" "Hey bestie, we found out today that we're having a girl!" That used to be enough. But then people started getting pink and blue cakes which morphed into popping balloons so that the expectant parents could be showered in pink or blue glitter or confetti, which turned into those stupid pink or blue powder cannons that seem to always be exploding in people's faces or being deployed incorrectly and ending up being launched into Dad's crotch.
