In March 2020, the lives of Grossmont’s 100th graduating class, the Class of 2021, were dramatically changed. In the past 14 months, Foothillers have faced the challenge of distance learning as well as the challenge of transitioning from a semester to a quarter system and adjusting to the varying in person and distance learning schedules. At the end of 2020, students could choose to return to class one day a week, in 2021 two days, and now four days a week. At the same time, some students have continued to learn from home while the teachers teach simultaneously to those at home and those in class.
