How long do you think it will be before schools that are full time, 100% capacity end up online? Will they end up online?

I think our timeframe should focus more on how long it will take for the virus to shut us down and more on how much time will expire before we can be securely safe from the virus reaching another grim milestone. I’m sorry but I have grandchildren to worry about and I know at the rate this virus is spreading and we are not in school, it is not at all reasonable to think it will get better when we return to school. How long will it take the federal government to step up with national guidelines that must be adhered to or those in violation face extreme consequences?

..."an act"?

The students know what is going on in the world around them. They know we are in the grips of a pandemic that has brought down many, many innocent individuals. They know how scary it is that someone they sit next to in school might have Covid and they could potentially bring it home to their mother or father or sick grandfather who could contract it and die. Children need a safe, nurturing environment to learn and grow as they should. Having to worry constantly about this virus will greatly stifle their learning potential. Any form of education at this point, whether it is in person or online or both, IS crisis learning. The question simply is, which one is safer? You tell me.

I give it a month, tops, before we are fully online. In my opinion, the only good thing about being in person for a little while is the ability to give out laptops, get students signed up for Google Classroom and Remind, help students navigate Google Classroom and answer any questions they have in person, and the ability to have had some interaction together so we won't be complete strangers online.

With all the valuable information Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci has given to the public as recent as today, I feel that we should not even risk sending the students back only to be shut down after the virus has spread even more. Dr Birx said today that it was spreading, in this new phase, to rural as well as urban areas. We must do something as far as meeting educational needs of our students but our students health has to be the primary concern.

My school is returning full time at 100% capacity. I’m extremely nervous about this move. I know online learning isn’t the best option (there are no good options), but I can’t see in-person learning at max capacity going well. Many of my coworkers have said they don’t think we will be in school long, which is upsetting bc that means kids/staff will get sick.

Online education does not work. If we continue our current philosophy of every student must succeed, it will not happen. That doesn't mean there can't be a completely online school, but it has to be a choice school and not required.

That Cracker Jack wisdom only goes so far. Online schools work very well, but the most disadvantaged students are not using them. Any educational style is very successful for some students. But every educational style also leaves some students behind. A good teacher can find ways to reach the ones who fall through the cracks. In a strictly online version, that is much harder to do. Student-teacher contact is the only way to reach all students.

Our Superintendent rocks. He said yes, we want our students to learn. He expects them to learn everyday. However, he wants them to learn compassion, empathy, and sympathy. He wants us to help our students emotionally and everyday before we actually start classes, we go over an Emotional Social day. We are 100% online.

This may not be popular but we need to get on with life. Yes people are dying and will die. They die from the flu, heart attack, strokes, cancer, car / plane/ 4-wheeler-ATV’s, motorcycles boating accidents, TBI, etc. Yes, do I where a mask? Yes, most always or when I feel I need to so others and myself are safe. Do I use good hygiene? Yes. Do I social distance? Yes. But the problem now is that iris here. It is not going away for now. People are going to get togethers, parties, Social gatherings, etc. so if it is okay for children to play with each other, go to the stores without masks,have sleep overs, eat out, movies, etc. then what is the differences between that and going to school? Yes, will I do everything I can to keep the children/ staff/ parents/ etc safe? YOU BET I WILL! Will I clean more on my own time my classroom? Yes! Will I have the children clean more? Yes! Will I continue to teach good hygiene? Yes! Will I keep my students as safe and healthy as I possibly can? Yes! But when you see people/ hospitals/ testing places abuse the system just to get more money, that is not right. One person went and waited to be tested. They were there a long time and said I am out of here. They never were tested. They left before they got to them. Then they get a call they tested positive! This has happened more than once. Another person I know was very ill with cancer. There was nothing more they could do. He passed from the cancer. But guess what, he tested positive. I strongly believe that we did the right thing about shutting everything down so we could get a handle on what was happening, what we needed to do, etc. but now it is time to slowly get back to a “normal “ life. Then we had a person who worked for us during the summer (adult 30’s) called and wanted us to lie about him not able to work due to C-19 so they would get “ free” money. What! Lie. No way! They could of worked if they wanted. Then they were mad and went to get someone else to lie for him. We are making more and more people who believe that they are entitled to everything free and if you have it, then so should they and they steal it. Just praying that there are no spikes with the C-19, parents start stepping up because we can’t do it alone, students love for learning comes out, students want to be back in the physical classroom, and their is respect , kindness, caring, love compassion, helpfulness, honesty, and a positive mindset. I love teaching and the children are so important to me and that they get the best education I can give them filled with manners, respect, kindness, caring, helpfulness, eager to learn and want to learn more, set goals and reach for the stars, etc.

I disagree with the crippling effect of “getting back to normal” mindset. Yes of course people are misdiagnosed, yes people are abusing the crisis. Nevertheless that does not take away from those that have died from the virus. That does not diminish the devastation families have suffered from the effects of the disease. We won’t get back to normal anytime soon but let’s not widen the gap between what has happened and what will happen. New York was the epicenter in March and April and now they are going back to school. Can we at least get to where they (New York) are before we begin our “new (back) to normal?

Maybe wearing a full body suit with an o2 machine. We may have to do that for done. Maybe daily virus test fir those students and teachers hopefully reliable.

In ND school I teach, all students are provided with chrome book & on- line access. It worked this spring fairly well. We are rural school & going face to face in a few weeks (no masks) Guessing we will be fully back to Google Classroom before Oct 1. I really hope I’m wrong!!

Depends on the infection numbers and transmission rate in each district. I predict we'll see both increase substantially as schools start F2F. Sad students and other community members will have to pay with their health and lives before some decision makers will come to reason.
