I have a niece who is a teacher as is her husband. They live in the area of Northern California that is threatened by fire. Last week, school was supposed to start on a part in-person and part distant learning basis. On that day, they were notified that they had to evacuate their home.

They are now back in their home.

The start of school has been delayed.

Around my area, most schools are stating with distant learning. Good luck to all the students, parents and teachers. They are all going through a very difficult period.

They are back online to school. CA was smart about keeping (most) kids, families and teachers healthy and safe by not re-opening schools. All my school teacher clients are teaching from school, but to a web cam not a full classroom.

It is clear that in Ohiio, like in Florida, ensuring continued tax funding of the school system takes precedence over public health.
I trust the informed citizen used these past months to discipline their bodies to become lean fighting machines. Fat weakens, Covid does the rest.
After all, the whole plan was to flatten the curve NOT prevent infection.

Will ~ All the school districts that I know of in the Metro DC area are reopening 100% virtual, at least for the first quarter/half of the school year.  Though there is a significant portion of parents that want at least a hybrid model of some days per week physically in the school building.

In NY, schools start after Labor Day.  I think in my area, half home/half in person.  (and people are welcome to stay at home).  We'll see how things progress 2 weeks after start.  I have a hunch that NYC will be a disaster for a # of reasons.  Here, 30-60 minutes away (pending on where in the county) most at least have the technology and the combo of more space (overall) and people being careful/cautious, it might work. But, we'll see.

 

In my county, there are many that are either planning to home school or just try remote.  So that may make things easier.  They are being more sensitive to teacher needs.

Many in NYC are upset (teachers and parents), and as a result more are moving here and/or retiring and/or creating pods.

Our local schools are going to be online only until specific metrics are met for the county. My youngest goes back to the University of Oregon next week. U of O is using a hybrid approach. Large classes will be held online; smaller classes will be held in person with appropriate social distancing and mask requirements. After seeing the problems with large colleges opening in August, I hope U of O students will avoid the large parties leading to students being sent home/online.

My wife's a kindergarten teacher and she's been at it for a couple weeks now. Her district started the year off with remote learning. It's been quite a challenge rebuilding the wheel of eductation. Arizona's COVID cases have been on a rapid decrease so it won't be long before they'll have to start all over with in person learning.

I feel for parents of school age children. I think I would keep mine home because you really can't control what goes on outside your home and it puts everyone at risk.

School started here yesterday, Monday, but it is up to the parents to decide if their children will attend in person, do elearning or some other online school such as virtual. Every county in Florida is doing things a little differently so it will be interesting to see how it works out.
