How do you build connections when you can’t see your friends at school every day? Morgan Reed, a junior at Glenwood Springs High School, said she has been searching for the answer.
“I’ve been keeping up with my two best friends almost every day since my last real day of school, but it’s harder to continue a friendship that was born purely from being in the same class with someone and never really grew from that point,” she said.
One way that Reed and her close friends have stayed connected is through virtual movie screenings. Every day, they FaceTime and watch a movie "together." They even held a superhero movie marathon.
“Because we haven’t seen each other in person in over two months, having them there to ensure our bond doesn’t go away has been the only thing keeping me from going crazy with isolation,” she said.
