how old are your kids?
Chicago mom here. My DCs are at a parochial school. DS’ cohort is remote for 2 weeks as of today due to a case in his class.
I see it's just two grades on Twitter
Only two grades had exposure, but my understanding of State rules is that two cases in a school means some closure for the remainder of the school, but I don't have first hand knowledge.
@Anonymous I believe that it a DiBlasio thing for DOE schools, the 2 cases means a shut down unless you can prove unrelated. Not sure what the rules for the state or for independent schools are.
The JTA article said the Ramaz high school shut down due to covid as of the date 9/14/20.
If you are going to post about this, at least be accurate. Two grades are closing, not the entire school.
@Anonymous When did Ramaz open exactly? Which two grades are being quarantined? Thanks so much. Another NYC Jewish day school parent here.
@anonymous I originally corrected above that it was only 2 grades, but now I think it was the entire HS that had to close. I guess information is developing. Here is some regional info. https://www.jta.org/2020/09/14/health/this-is-what-we-expected-covid-closures-and-quarantines-already-widespread-at-new-york-area-jewish-day-schools
