Dear Community,

If you've been on around this time in previous seasons, you may remember a watermarked site, the site in grayscale, announcements of "smartwatch" support, and a Test Exchange paywall.

Undoubtedly, this season has been unusual, and this year is opting out of our traditional April Fools' Day events. We're doing so out of respect for everyone in our community and beyond affected by COVID-19, and in this moment of uncertainty and stress, it is important more than ever to stay true and factual. Your discussions show your passion for Science Olympiad, and together you helped crowdsource a resource with the latest, accurate updates on tournaments nationwide. We're proud of you and how you're handling these changes.

As you follow the events around us, we hope you're also giving attention to your own health, both mentally and physically. Find time for mindfuless, self care, exercise, or whatever helps you feel more like yourself. Remember, it's okay not to be at your most productive during a pandemic.

As always, in the community we're here for one another, and we'll get through this together to see brighter times. Take care, and stay safe.
