Weathering the ‘storm’ at Primrose
Teachers at Primrose School at Collier Parkway are missing their Primrose Pals during the pandemic, so they worked hard to add joy by displaying rainbows throughout the building, to remind everyone that “The greater the storm, the brighter the rainbow.”
Students can create their own rainbow, too, and send it to the school on Primrose’s Facebook Page (in the comments section of the rainbow post), or by email to .
Submitted creations will be shared with the teachers on their ‘How You Doing?’ bulletin board.
Primrose also offers Online with Og! for at-home interactive learning activities.
Og the Bookworm represents caring and literacy, and is a Primrose Friend that helps to bring the school experience into the home.

Saint Leo sticks with online; postpones graduation
Saint Leo University will continue to offer its classes online through the summer.
“This decision was made out of an abundance of caution due to the coronavirus pandemic and the possible need for continued social distancing measures,” according to a news release from the university.
University officials also have postponed all scheduled commencement ceremonies and activities until later this year.
That decision also was made as a precaution in consideration for “all those who will be participating or might need to travel to attend. Health authorities are uncertain of when large-scale social gatherings can safely resume,” the release says.
This change affects numerous commencement ceremonies scheduled in various states, including the Florida commencement that had been scheduled for June 1.
University events planned on campus in June will be canceled or postponed, including all camps and conferences, the release says.
Virtual events planned online, however, will continue as scheduled.
The shift to online classes will apply to both the Summer 1 and 2 terms for all courses, including all accelerated summer courses taught at education centers and University Campus St. Leo. This also affects all other locations throughout Florida and the United States.
As soon as plans are finalized for commencement, students will be notified of the new date by email. Information also will be posted on the Saint Leo website at SaintLeo.edu/commencement.
