Look.  There's no way anyone could have known this would happen.

Let's just open the schools back up and try again.  It's not science if you can't repeat it.  5, 6 more tries and we'll know for sure.

narrator:  they just emailed the whole school.

what is worse is they cannot do contact tracing.  Parents are gossip machines.  If you only contact the kids who were in Teacher Victim #43's class, rest assured every other parent will want to know where Lil'Johnny was that day.

let alone the kid was on a bus and walked in a hallway to boot.

Hyjamon: "who would have thought kids wouldn't use protection?"

I particularly like the idea that some magical pieces of cloth will be 100% protection, even if worn completely correctly.  Are masks useless, no.  Are they useless if you rub your eyes, pick your nose, lift them up every 5 minutes, shove a piece of food ever kid in school has coughed on in your mouth under it? Yeah, pretty much.

Seriously, condoms are 99% effective, when used right.  That's 1% ineffective when used right, and farking useless when cut into animal shapes before put on your junk.

Contact tracing?  In schools, let me laugh.  I'm from the 90's, back when you were told that you had sex with everyone your partner ever had sex with, and everyone their partners had had sex with, and everyone their partner's partners had sex with. By the end of the day if you lost you're virginity you'd might as well have gangbanged the whole town twice over and most certainly had already contracted gonasyphaherpAIDS and were dead.

A grade school child using a genuine n95 mask correctly for 4 - 6 hours a day?  Not. Going. To. Happen. Only this time, all that above bullshiat they told us is mostly true, except it applies to a handshake, a sneeze, a cough, and sex too more than likely. Elementary schools are plague ships during the healthiest of times and are practically already sacrificial plague rats so mommy and daddy can work; toss in a global pandemic and this outcome is as predictable as tomorrows sunrise.

It'll be like snow days. Everyone has to get up early and turn on the news to see which classrooms or buildings are closed that day. Just think of all the fun working parents will have arranging child care on the fly. Surely this game of stoplight will be so much better for everyone as opposed to consistent remote learning. Wait... why are you all laughing?

any that is a hell of a statement seeing how the Perdue family is still in Trump's orbit.

The whole thing sucks of course...no state ever should have reopened schools. But if you're a principal then you have to work with what you've got. That's why I said I assume they would be having every class eat lunch separately...so it prevents unnecessary mixing of classes and kind of keeps everyone together.

I had assumed they would be told to bring their lunch...not sure about carts, I guess that's an option too but that would be A LOT of carts. They're not really used to delivering food like in jail or something.

As for masks...kids just need to learn how to wear them. This should be part of early education now, because there's no telling how many future viruses we're going to be encountering. Treat masks as a behavior issue and discipline them for not wearing them. That's going to be something they need for the future.

Actually, unless the students were isolated to a singular classroom for the day, had 0 contact with any other classes and that classroom had its own individual HVAC system that did not mix air with the rest of the school, then this is bullshiat.

There are still all sorts of people who believe that COVID-19 is being used as a subterfuge to hurt the current President's chances of re-election. That's bizarre and mentally unstable, but for the sake of argument, let's just run with it, shall we?

There are a lot of things that we don't know about COVID-19, but ever since it first appeared late last year, we have gained a lot of good information about its cycles and how the disease progresses when it gets a foothold in communities. Lots of schools open up somewhat earlier, but most schools in the U.S. will open in the late August (or potentially even early September) timeframe. So let's just think this through:

Kids go back to school in late August. So the virus starts making its way through classrooms, and they start bringing it home to their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. We know that there can be a period of anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks between infection and when symptoms start to show. So now you're looking at around mid-September when you could start to see large numbers of people getting sick.

We know that serious complications, when they occur, typically happen a couple of weeks or so after the infection has progressed. So you could expect to see a wave of complications and the associated hospitalizations in the late-September to early-October timeframe. Depending on the area, this could also result in overwhelmed health care systems, which would exacerbate the problem.

And we know that there's generally a lag time of two weeks or so between hospitalization and death for the most serious of cases. So now you're looking at mid-to-late October for a potential massive spike in COVID-19 deaths, many (if not most) of which would have been completely avoidable. And you're looking at the potential for an extremely grim scenario to be playing itself out on the local evening news.

I'm wondering... is there anything else important (from a political perspective) going on in that late-October to early-November period?

If you're still reading this, here's the point: If you wanted to set up a perfect storm, an electoral time bomb that would explode in the face of the current President right on the eve of the election, you couldn't possibly concoct a more devastating scenario than a full-throated reopening of American schools in the late August timeframe. It's almost too perfect.

And yet, all of the people who are supposedly in on this conspiracy to unseat the current President are actively fighting this absurd idea. If they really were only interested in seeing him lose the election and didn't care about the sickness and the death that would result, why on Earth wouldn't these people be supporting the idea of reopening all the schools?

Here's the answer, and it's not a complicated one: There is no conspiracy, you farking dipshiats. Reopening schools is a colossally stupid idea that will result in lots of people getting sick, and lots of people dying. It really is that simple. Everybody wants to get back to normal eventually, but we can't just wish away the reality that we find ourselves in.
