Remember those days getting on the bus, engaging in classes, and spending time with classmates was our norm. 

Our new normal is school buses are sitting idle in the bus yard, schools are closed, and hanging out with friends is not advised. Social distancing is a new important lifestyle we all have to endure in order to slow the spread of the virus. 

About 45 states have closed schools and 52.6 million students have been affected. On the news many have only seen one point of view of how COVID-19 has impacted lives of adults, here is how teens are adjusting to their new normal.
