"Let’s play freeze tag!"
Dressed for school with the COVID-era school uniform – that ear-to-ear, nose-to-chin cloth cover – Shyla Gardenhire started recess just as a kindergartner normally would. Running as fast as she could.
Atop her head was a unicorn hat. She whipped through a circle, then another on the paved zone cordoned for her class: one of four zones created to keep groups small, even outside.
Two more kindergartners yelled “freeze tag!” unfazed with all players running and the apparent omission of the tag-step. Kids swooped by each other, all wearing masks.
