I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?

No mask on my room!! So glad !!

I also work for a school district. None of my preschoolers wear a mask all day. I think masking is a terrible thing to do to a child and is causing many communication delays. In addition, no one should sleep with a mask on.

Our nurse has an email group of our states school nurses that she can bounce ideas off, or ask questions etc. Is there anything like that for secretaries? Teachers are keen to share how they handle things in their classrooms, but every school does attendance, has messages that need to be relayed thru the day, all these things going on, I just always wonder how it's handled elsewhere. I took this position two years ago and I don't like "This is just how it's always been done".

Now that a vaccine is here the reality of going back to the classroom is getting closer to become a reality.

It took me an hour to get over it and I know the other teachers and admin thought I was crazy. Change happens.

And when I ask, they say there is someone, just not sure when the sub can start. Thanks for letting me vent!

How is your district implementing school reentry? How are you setting up your classrooms to meeting social distancing while still allowing for free play?

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
