    My daughter will be in 1st grade. Our district is going to do virtual all semester, except for a 2 week period at the beginning of the year for orientation. As I understand it, the kids will go into school in very small groups for about 3 days each to meet their teachers, learn the e-learning programs, etc. I understand the reasons behind the little mini orientation period, I’m just not totally comfortable with it. You can opt out apparently. Likely a game time decision for us on that part.

    There are certain qualifications she must meet in order to be eligible, so definitely read up on it. Hope it works out.

    In fairness, this kind of thing happened constantly before COVID.

    Took my son back to 2yr daycare this week for the first time (didn’t want to, but no choice). They’re taking temps of all parents/kids at the door, masks required for all adults but not kids. Better than nothing I guess.

    They’ve shut down a lot of the common areas as well, including the indoor playroom. That part sucks because it’s his favorite part and they’ve shown you pretty much aren’t going to pick it up from surfaces, so now they’re just stuck in their classroom all day.

    I know you hedged with “probably,” don’t I don’t know that there’s enough accurate information out there to know exactly how it spreads within kids. For what it’s worth, we sent our 4-year-old back to daycare on June 1, and I’ve been pleased with the preventive measures they’ve taken. Are they enough? Who knows?

    Point was you can’t use bacterial infections as precedent for a virus. But by all means, do your thing.

    I've also been pleased with the preventive measures our daycare has taken. I haven't even seen the inside of the school since she's been back and that's cool with me.

    Same. Ours won’t allow parents past the vestibule, where temps are taken.

    Same. Have to answer a survey with several questions every morning before drop off. Also get multiple temperature updates on the app throughout the day...seem to try and take them when they nap. They have been smart and haven't relaxed a single new rule yet.

    AbeFroman You touch me, I yell RAT!

    I agree wrt masks but how are we supposed to do effective contact tracing on people that think the government (headed by their preferred candidate) is trying to control you by asking you to wear a piece of filter paper on your face? Those people will not answer questions and definitely won't download a trace app on their phone. (that already provides private info to numerous companies).

    "Need access to my pictures, camera, microphone, and contacts to play Candy Crush? Well, I guess."

    "Need access to my location to help keep others alive and contain viral transmission? No way!"

    I don't know how large the number is that fits the profile above but my gut tells me it's a large enough number that makes it extremely difficult to act effectively on outbreaks.

    Sorry, this should probably be in the coronavirus: we're fucked thread.

    Out county’s plan is that teachers will be sanitizing all surfaces in their classrooms everyday during school. What are they providing for the teachers to do this? A single box of Lysol wipes

    This was referenced in our BOE meeting for our district yesterday when we decided to go remote for the first nine weeks.

    Of course, one of the members (I’ll let you guess demographic info) thought it was nonsense and we needed to go back traditionally. I had to strongly resist the urge to tell this person that he is free to gather up as many kids as he wants to teach them traditionally in his own home.

    My district is doing fully online the first semester. However, there are rumors that they still want us to come into the building on possibly a daily basis. If it's for a couple of hours day, don't think I would have a problem with that. Gets me out the house, however, if they're thinking a full 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. They can kindly fuck off

    Decided to keep the kids home. My wife works part time and so does her sister, so we’re just going to be trading kids back and forth. All the options fucking suck, but I don’t trust the state when it comes to the well being of my kids. We need so much better leadership and they have failed like none other.

    When I see shit like this, I know damn well this state doesn’t give a shit about the kids, teachers, or anyone that works at the schools. Fuck them all.

    My sons school said they would do a virtual school test day for parents a few weeks back and have yet to see any of it come to be.

    After some time to evaluate the situation we (mostly me) have decided to opt for the Virtual School for the first six weeks of school. The county we live in has seen a spike in cases so I wouldn’t be surprised if the choice is made by the school to do this anyways but we likely will be virtual till the new year.
