I wish it was it was a law to start school after Labor Day for students. I never went to school before Labor Day when growing up. We should go back to that. Just saying!

like

We have that law in Michigan, although districts are allowed to ask for state permission to start earlier, which is not always approved.

However due to Labor Day being so late our calendar says we start September 1. For this year due to the pandemic districts are allowed to start early without permission.

I think we should stay online for at least the first 9 weeks.

I would not like that, here in ND, I’ve always had school start in mid-late Aug. (since 1970s when I entered 1st grade)

When would school end if you start later?

Confused if parents want schools to reopen or not? I read so many posts here about how difficult it is to work full time and manage kids’ at-home schooling (I can’t even imagine!) so would assume that means parents want to reopen, but at the same time keep seeing a ton of backlash from parents in states who are pushing to reopen due to safety reasons. What’s the general consensus?

Chicago Tribune:
Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen.
Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field.

Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.

People often tell me I need to speak up, and I just have a habit of speaking at the volume comfortable to me, but apparently that's too quiet for people.

I know the obvious answer is to talk louder, but it feels weird, unnatural, and performative to speak up. Not a confidence thing, I just tend to talk to people at volumes similar to siri, zoom calls, or thinking out loud, and that's too quiet for people in real life. Have any fellow quiet people overcome similar issues? What worked for you?
