    Politicians were pushing not till after Labor Day. I could see that happening with the new state of emergency stuff that just came out.

    Our system was just planning on opening like normal besides temp checks but now they’re doing a survey with “shareholders” in the community on how they should handle school this year

    I would think opening earlier rather than later to try to avoid flu overlap would make sense.

    I agree I would have opened in July and went to thanksgiving and reevaluate on the spring semester over the long Christmas break

    not really because they are doing it by making the teachers assistant teach 50 percent. They aren’t hiring more teachers

    Where are they putting the extra classes? Won't they need twice as many classrooms?

    That's something that I hadn't really considered as an option. Any talks of splitting classes in Knox is an A group and a B group going on staggered days.

    My boss wondered why all of my texts had a really odd GPS signature on them.
