"My wife’s school district CMS is forcing her to return in January"
and I don’t like that shit.
Cases going up, it’s a performing arts school.. but the kids can’t take dance classes because of Covid.
so the principle has put in some crazy ass protocol that forces all teachers to return because they need the bodies to enforce the guidelines. Which means all teachers are essential even though with doctors orders to teach remotely.
Shit like enforcing end monitoring: 1 bathroom open on each floor Kids can’t take bathroom breaks without supervision Hallways and stairwells that go in one direction Kids have temp checks before entering the building Walking around with a trash can so kids can throw their trash in it at lunch separation of a kid feels sick
and a whole bunch of their shit that basically has my wife acting like a CO or a nurse. I’m hopping the spike will push things back but they seem determined to get these kids back in school so parents can go back to work. Our kids don’t have daycare right now cause.. you know, COVID!!!
She’s worried, I’m nervous and will prolly have to work from home with these kids in January.

Thought it was weird seeing pro-choice signs in the same group of protesters holding Trump 2020 signs but then I realized what the sign was about and laughed at how oblivious these idiots are to hypocrisy/self-awareness.

my granddaughter is still enrolled in nc. her school does in person and remote and gave us the option because her needs are different. I imagine they’ll force her back in, the teachers don’t want to do both.

She may want to create her own virtual course(s). The stress alone will force her to use those medical benefits..the freedom and relief will give her more time to create/design the life she wants. Just my opinion.

Which is a good enough reason to keep them closed to me. Teaching isn’t meant to be a life endangering job.
But studies, so far, have shown that pre-school and elementary school kids aren’t spreading it to each other in a significant way. When young kids that are in school catch the disease, it’s overwhelmingly from the people they live with.
We have the luxury of keeping ours at home and socially distancing in general until the vaccine hits but the push to open the schools up (and therefore everything else ) is going to be very strong by spring so we’re starting to think about what our strategy will be.

Virtual learning means you’re going to lose so many kids that don’t have the parental support to make sure they’re doing what they need to do. We’re no longer talking a few months here. This is going on a year of this shit.
History will judge the “leaders” who didn’t do shit about this pandemic so harshly.
