It’s another Thursday morning on Shalimar Drive.

Cars rumble down the road. Distantly, banda music spills out the open windows of a ground-floor apartment. The playground is empty, with all the children having returned to their classrooms with the full reopening of schools. The newest arrivals on the block — this day, at least — clutch clipboards in one hand and a stack of papers and fliers tucked away in clear, plastic bags in the other.
