ABBOTT ELEMENTARY revealed a different side to the entire ensemble as they started their teacher’s winter break from school. Changing routines can lead to almost “hazardous” results during the holidays. 

It can be tough for some to “let loose” in a club surrounded by people they know. Just wearing different types of clothing that are not “teacher-ish” can be overwhelming and confusing. The big rule at Abbott is “you can’t lie to a janitor.” Too many truths lurk below the surface for all. The key for Janine (Quinta Brunson) is to “be normal” even if you are partying with Ava (Janelle Janes.) 

ABBOTT ELEMENTARY was an insightful episode. It holds the promise of romantic moments to come in the new year.

It can be streamed on ABC Television.
