California really has been cruel to kids lately.

I have an idea. Send the kids to school with a pre-packed lunch on rainy days and let them eat at their desks. And for kids who can't bring lunch to school, provide them with a brown bag lunch that they can eat at their desks.

Therefore the vaccine is illegal and Trump is automatically reinstated and Biden is demoted to golden toilet cleaner and Bernie is still not a Democrat

Last year we were F2F and the kids would go class by class to the cafeteria and bring it back to their class.  This year everyone is eating in the cafeteria.  Number of days that any of the schools in our district has been shut down in the last two years?  Zero

How so? I know that Texas and Florida are trying to kill kids with COVID. Did something like that happen in California?
 
2021-10-20 2:49:32 PM  
Oh look, Fox found someone doing stupid shiat in California again.  What a surprise that they should jump on that, as if they had some sort of agenda or something.  A free double-hitter on California AND vaccination both at once?  Hell some article guy had to change his pants

It's great when you get lucky.

It's terrible when you're unlucky.

I think there have been something like 700 kids under 15 sacrificed to Covid so-far so some people can feel "normal."

lol.  Even before covid that's the way it was.

My daughter's went to HS in California...Poway High and Mount Carmel.  Both were the same.

Schools are designed differently in CA than other places.  I went to HS at Midwest City High in OK and we rarely went outside unless we were the band or a sports team.

Not counting the ones with "long Covid" or who got some organ messed up for life.

Do they like pina coladas?
 
2021-10-20 2:58:57 PM  
Out in the agricultural district. But I guess Fox NY assumes that all of CA is just a single liberal megapolis from LA to SF.

/those kids were probably Giants fans, so they should sit out in the rain and suffer
 
2021-10-20 3:00:00 PM  
Rain? In California?

They're probably sending the kids out there so they can see what rain looks like for the first time in their lives. I'm surprised they didn't declare a school holiday in celebration.
 
2021-10-20 3:01:13 PM  
This is what happens when Covid hits peak idiocy. Surely, SURELY, there was a better option, right?

"This exemplifies California's response with kids during the pandemic," Reopen California Schools founder Jonathan Zachreson told Fox News. "The inhumane treatment of children continues from masking all day, even outdoors, to having to sit on hot cement and now eating lunch in the rain."

That's what you consider "inhumane"? Fark off, snowflake.

The weather in Davis and the weather in Poway are quite different.

Our kids have outdoor recess in the snow, so I don't know what these parents are complaining about.

California is known for its "one size fits all" approach to things, all the while forgetting that California isn't all beaches and suburbs. A few fun ones where I live:

1)Mandatory statewide water use reductions, even though the water where I live flows to Nevada, where there are no watering restrictions. I had a client tell me that we had to cut back on watering to "help the rest of the State" and I politely pointed out how our water did nothing to help the rest of the State.
2) Banning the sale of gas-powered landscape equipment by 2024. I'd like to see what kind of electric snowblower is going to replace our gas-powered Hondas, which on storm days get run for up to 8 hours a day.
3) Banning the sale of gas-powered generators by 2024 in a state with a notoriously terrible power grid. Our power has gone out for days at a time during winter storms.
4) Mandating all-electric vehicles by 2035, while we have a mildly comical issue around here of Teslas running out of juice while stuck in winter storm traffic on the passes because keeping the heat on drains their batteries.

On a separate note, A local marina had an electric wakeboard boat that you could go for demo rides behind this summer. It was doing the rounds on Social Media after Zuckerberg posted about it. Except for the marina they were demoing out of didn't have the power infrastructure to support charging it, so they used a giant diesel generator all summer.

/end of rant

Is the school not equipped with covered outdoor seating like virtually every other school in California? I'm guessing that affected students don't feel nearly as put out as the outraged Fox news viewers.
 
2021-10-20 3:21:17 PM  
Hell, let the kids go out there. A bunch of them will probably enjoy it.

GaperKiller: Banning the sale of gas-powered generators by 2024 in a state with a notoriously terrible power grid. Our power has gone out for days at a time during winter storms.


So when you buy an RV in 2024, you have to pay an extra fee to have the generator removed.

12 percent chance of sprinkles at noon today for Davis. I'm 80 miles south of there and all we have is clouds and a slight breeze (10-15 mph).

From the article: "During a heavy downpour, we will have a staggered lunch with one grade level at a time in our MPR for 15 minutes with all 10 doors open and 2 air purifiers running. After 15 minutes, students will be dismissed to their classrooms for inside recess. If you prefer that your child remains outside to eat please inform your teacher and we will make accommodations to support your request."

If there is a heavy down pour they will eat in the Multi Purpose Room (MPR), which is not "outdoors."

kdawg7736: California really has been cruel to kids lately.


Cal recently became the first state to make sure every damb kid eats breakfast and lunch every school day. It being the left coast, turns out they don't even have to eat their meat and they can still have pudding. Typical blue state.

I went to school in the Bay Area. Our cafeteria didn't have room for all the kids to sit and eat. On rainy days we ate in our classroom at our desks. On regular days we ate at picnic tables set out on the grass between the classroom wings.

Firstly, unvaccinated kids should not be at school.

Secondly. all students should be delivered lunch in the classroom.

A bit, yeah.  But my daughter who is at UC Davis right now says it's not a big deal and kids need to stop whining.

Anecdotal second hand but I believe her.

Lunch in the rain? I hope no one brought a cake for dessert. Jimmy Webb would be pissed.

2021-10-20 3:46:46 PM  
Well the problem is Covid being easily transmissible if they eat in doors. Most schools have covered eating areas, but it's just fake outrage by Covidiots.

RedVentrue: Secondly. all students should be delivered lunch in the classroom.


'Delivered' lunch? They don't even have enough teachers to occupy all of the classes, and you think they have the staff to 'deliver' lunch?

A couple of dumb outraged parent quotes and not one from a parent supporter, school kid, or school employee.  What a shiat article.  And yeah, covered eating spaces are the norm in my CA town but I guess we're a little smarter than in Davis.

LOL.  I didn't even know my kids were getting free lunch until they told me. My son was so full he came home with his handmade chicken burrito made by some awesome Mexican ladies who were personally handing them out with bananas and chocolate milk on the side.  Better than adults eat.
