COVID-19 has left its mark on the world in a myriad of ways. In this podcast, a group of seniors share their thoughts about living in a global pandemic and how it changed their long-awaited rites of passage: prom, senior dinner dance, graduation. As a result, there will be "Blank Pages in the Yearbook" where their final high school memories should have been.

On March 13, 2020, teachers said goodbye to their students, thinking they would see them in several weeks after the spread of COVID-19 was contained. But that didn't happen. That day was the last day they would see their students in their classrooms. For teachers of seniors, this realization hit hard. Listen to some Park teachers sharing their feelings about how they feel about those "Empty Seats in the Classroom."
