As “School Season” Comes to a Close

GoGuardian Team GoGuardian Team June 13, 2019

In the past few months, your favorite TV shows came to a close for the season. You watched your finales and perhaps saw previews of what’s to come in the fall, and hopefully you were excited for shows to return in a few months (except for one, maybe. Winter is sadly not coming again...but fall is!). In the television industry, it’s called a “hiatus.” In education, most call it “summer break.” But it all means the same thing: we break for summer and come back strong for the next season. The truth is, while the viewers are taking summer breaks from watching the show, the production keeps running in order to bring you top content for the fall. And that’s what we’re doing too.
