Keep the high school kids 9-12 at home to do DL. Although kids with special ed services need to be ina classroom. All k-8 need to be at school with half numbers in each class. How can we do this? Have all admin,counselors and many elective teachers.... which wouldn’t be really needed at this time... music, pe, dance, band etc from all grade levels to team teach a bunch of younger kids. We have testing coordinators doing nothing ... librarians a lot of staff literally doing nothing who could

This is unprecedented times. ALL students need to stay home until the virus is done. We did not go to college to be a teacher simply to enter a battleground. We do not have students who will follow directions needed to stay safe. If adults not wearing mask. Mask can save lives and yet it becomes a political issue.


I teach 7th grade and I think my students should stay home. While I agree that in person learning is better, it must be done safely and I have no faith it will be done so. Learning is like anything else in life: you get what you put in. If a student is putting in the work, they’ll get an education. If they don’t put in the effort, they won’t. I understand that not everyone has an idea situation at home and we can look at accommodations for those students but to put everyone at risk isn’t wise. I’m also someone who is at a higher risk so that plays into how I feel about it.

Need a way to help with water intake at school? I was skeptical of it at first but finally caved and bought the cirkul bottle it has helped me nearly double my water intake since having it!! It’s small enough to carry around the classroom, tons of different flavors, and the metal bottle keeps the water cold throughout the school day! 😍 let me know if you want to know more about my favorite flavors so far! Also! Having an Amazon echo with reminders scheduled helped remind me to drink up too!

anyone know how to link Google classroom and PowerSchool together? our small school cannot afford Unified Classroom

Is anyone else returning to fully in person learning? We have been hybrid/synchronous since September, which has been very hard and not very effective. They want us to have all Kindergarten students come back in March. I want to stop live teaching over google meet all day while also teaching my students in person at the same time, but there is not enough space in my classroom for safe distancing, not enough space for movement, and sitting at a desk all day is not appropriate for K kids!
