Nice contrast in your photo. Interesting designs. As a photographer always look for different angles to shoot the photo from.

How important is it?

With what could be life-or-death issue for faculty and students, or som student's vulnerable grandparent. It has great strength of dealing directly with a school issue. It is well done, only a hair's breadth less visually strking and bull's eye target than the winner. The covid blobs are all too familiar imagery, but hovering over the school building, they are appropriate to the point.
