Issues with the Daily Deac

To my very patient Daily Deacdom, I normally don’t post on the weekends, but we have been having trouble with our push service that brings the blog to your inboxes each weekday. Normally the Daily Deac is supposed to be sent between 5-7 pm Eastern, but that has been an unreliable time for technical reasons I don’t fully understand.

Last night’s issue went out between 9-11 pm, and now I need to do a bit of testing on the weekends to see other which time slots appear operational. Please bear with me as I run some tests with weekend bonus content. And remember, if your Daily Deac does not appear in your inbox when you normally expect it, you can always visit to seek it out on the website.

In coronavirus news, yesterday our Governor, Roy Cooper, ordered North Carolina residents statewide to stay at home starting at 5 p.m. Monday, March 30. The order will last 30 days and end on April 29.

My home office during coronavirusWhile we are all adjusting to the new normal, my very talented media colleagues created this very inspiring video about our students rising to the current challenge. I hope you like it as much as I did. It is part of our new Wake from Home website, where people can contribute their pictures and share their stories. Here is my #WakefromHome contribution: a picture of home office (aka my dining room table). I wear the red tiara when I need a little extra awesome, and Mr. Daily Deac and Class of ’27 and I play a lot of Catan in the evenings.

Stay safe and well, Deac families!
