Only 32 and a Half Days Left!: At this time a year ago we were abruptly dismissed from school with uncertainty of when we would return. Then our hearts broke a little when we were told we would not be returning in April and May. In August, while many schools in Utah and around the country remained in remote mode, we were so grateful to be able to return to school in person face to face. This year has been uniquely challenging and in many ways uniquely rewarding. I just want to take a minute and thank all of the Salem Jr.
