Any announcement yet? How do you feel about it?
Older kid's university is opening campus (or keeping it open) but you don't have to go back; if a course has more then 50 students it will be online and so far everything he's registered fro will be remote. He's planning on moving back anyway. Younger kid at HCHS and no info yet, but I predict hybrid with a staggered in-person schedule (and i wish they'd do homerooms/traveling classes for every grade to the extent possible).
NYC SS opening full-time five days a week either late August or early September.
NYC specialized HS. 1 day a week on site. Most schools in NYC are overcrowded (we are at 2x capacity) - imagine will be very common.
Alternate days, based on alphabet. Sheer insanity.
#1 Hunter high school, no plans announced yet. #2 UWS public, I guess same as every other...1 or 2 days onsite. Haven't heard any specifics.
Private, so far five days, earlier start with earlier finish (K). No after school or recess (not sure about art), lunch in the classroom.
NJ burbs - no decision yet but our district sent out a survey to get an idea of how many families would want one or more days of in-school instruction, and how many need bus transportation. They also stated they are working to provide some sort of "daycare" for, I am assuming, essential workers' kids.
Daycare might also be for teachers’ kids. That seems to be a big sticking point.
My DC SS school starting the second week of September...some exceptions permitted for valid health reasons but otherwise, everyone in school 5 days/week; no hybrid option. This will be revisited closer to winter in light of flu considerations.
Is this in NYC?
Not in NYC area (in a region where numbers are still rising) and school still up in the air. Public schools in my town are supposed to make some sort of announcement soon (though I wouldn't be shocked if the announcement is that they still don't know) and I am not even sure whether my dcs' private school will follow the public school lead.
My niece at success has a 50% schedule. I’m a teacher and waiting to see how stocked my school is with ppe and sanitizer, etc. I’m planning to quit, but haven’t officially decided yet. My school didn’t even have warm water so I am not eager to return to an unsafe environment.
That’s unsafe working conditions.
OR. I agree. That’s why I don’t plan to go back
Hand dryers are actually unsafe in pandemic- can disperse virus particles more widely. May not be why turned off, but should stay off for this reason now. Good luck, wishing you well, precious teacher.
So far allegedly back to private school
No announcement yet from our Hill school. Probably a mix of virtual learning and being physically present. Although I have no idea how they are going to social distance, even with fewer kids.
Which one? Helpful if we get more info.
