At least it's airier than a classroom, and you can maintain your distance at will.

I guess we could put those lift belts and aprons on all the kids but I doubt that will help much.


These are Florida children.  Consider it job training.

Senseless_drivel: desertratt: Sorelian's Ghost: He said open schools would help the economy by allowing parents to return to work.

Anyone saying anything different like "won't someone think of the children" can get bent, this is the only reason they want kids in school...full stop.

I want my kids back in school because canceling everything is more of a threat than the virus.  My just turned teenager is smarter than average but we just had her on suicide watch for 3 days.  We were just getting back to semi normal practices, following all the protocols and had a tournament set up for late July.  Lord Ducey cancelled all gyms which killed any chance.

WTF did I just read?


My just turned teenager asked me with tears streaming down her face.  Daddy, we did everything they said to do, you said if we follow all the rules, everything will be OK, we followed all the rules and they cancelled us anyway.  She fell into a depressive state and sobbed for 2 solid days and we had her on suicide watch, because I was not going to let her be alone.

We need to get back to normal or we are going to have an entire generation of farked up kids.

The other issue in middle and high school is kids crammed together in the halls as the go from one class to the next.


The clouds of Axe body spray will probably kill any viruses there.

You completely messed that up. It supposed to be:

My daughter came up to me and said, Sir, we did everything we could, and with tears streaming down her face, she thanked you for your leadership during these tough times.

It isn't like kids could spread Corvid to their parents or anything.

And I can't spell COVID this morning.


Don't put it past 2020 to start having people turn into Crows or Blue Jays.

You would think the Republicans are happy to not have their kids going to the deep state liberal indoctrination schools.

They should take this opportunity to de-program their crotchfruit from the evils of critical thinking and common core math.

It's not "airier" in a classroom. Not at all. My school is rather old and there are times the HVAC goes tits up. Even if it is working the temperature changes dramatically due to all the body heat. It's gross.

Can't socially distance either. Not in most classrooms. The ACT requires 3' between students and we have to reduce the number of test takers in each room to 20 or 25 kids. But that's possible because it's juniors only. To truly social distance at 6' I don't think we could put more than 10-15 kids in a room.

It's going to be a mess and a bunch of kids and school staff will get sick and some will die. And personally I think those responsible ought to be brought up on charges for that.
