The Grand Haven community has come through during a treacherous COVID-19 holiday season, uplifting and bringing smiles to White Pines Intermediate School’s special-education students.

COVID-19 has hindered opportunities for community-based instruction, which is especially vital for Jodie Gracey and Jaime Opplander’s SXI classroom. Typically, on Fridays, the class would venture out into the community to learn skills such as how to cross the street, pay for their own items and the functions of a stop light.
