I have, and it’s not hard as it’s open book (like you mentioned). That said, I know a few folks who have failed the CCSK because they didn’t know where to find the specific answers to the questions in the guide, and some of the questions can be worded weirdly. I may suggest spending a couple weeks reviewing content as some of it’s pretty helpful, and then take it (this is what I did and passed fairly easily).

So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing.

Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
