So...seems like shut downs are headed our ways. Why are schools requiring us to come in? I worked for multiple teachers last shut down, and honestly went above and beyond any other para in our building. I have three kids ages 8-11. This will put me under a tremendous hardship if I have to go to work everyday and find a sitter. Not to mention- when I brought this to my principals attention he said I might have to take Covid leave. Covid leave only lasts so long- correct? The. What do I do?

I know this is not helpful but there is no way that I will pay for a sitter to be with my own kids if we are required to go into school during another shut down. I did that a few times in the spring and I always ended up paying more than our meager wage. As much as I would hate to, I would be money ahead to resign.

I want to say I love working at my school, but I'm a little frustrated. Yesterday was bus driver appreciation and the teachers went outside after school to hold signs for them, amazing right? Today is secretaries day and they posted signs all over the office for them, I find that 100% fantastic! The problem I have is that paras and janitors we're barely acknowledged. Our sunshine said something to us a days after para appreciation day and my team, sped and grade team, both acknowledged us...
