Richmond Stories from Richmond Kids

In Spring 2020, everyday life in the Richmond Region was interrupted when schools closed as our community prepared to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. Students in the region unexpectedly transitioned to virtual learning and felt their social lives pause as the majority of Americans stayed at home.

The Valentine has asked local students to document and send in their stories, so that we can share share kids’ experiences during this historic period. Explore the thoughts and feelings of young people in Richmond as they weather the COVID-19 pandemic and navigate this uncertain time.
