think that option 1 is the best to do because everybody is not good enough to do option 2

Haha right, I think most students could not not cheat.

elementary schoolers can do easy work at home in my opinion

Option 1 is honestly a better choice for reopening the schools again and getting society into motion again. I prefer this since some students would feel more comfortable in a less crowded environment and give everyone a chance to speak up or answer.

Now Ronaldo, don't forget that one of the problems we, as a society, are facing is that of child care. Even though the elementary work is easier, who would sit there to redirect them back to their work, or explain the directions? All good points, and I agree. Just throwing another idea out there.

I would go for option 2 because some parents don't understand how to use technology and it would be difficult to help their kids.

With the importance of social distancing during the pandemic, what will the new normal look like for our schools?

Think about it. Is it even possible to keep a six foot distance between desks in a classroom of 20 computers? How would lunch work?

Here are two ideas to consider.

Option 1: Have an A day/B day schedule, where the year rolls along with alternating sets of students. Half of the student population would go to school on A day, the other half of the student population would go to school on B day. This would effectively cut the size of every class in half, making social distancing more possible.

Option 2: The elementary school children need the most hands on help right now. Middle and High school students are more mature, and can better adapt to online classes. All of the middle and high school buildings could be used as elementary schools so that our youngest kids can get the start they need. This would also help fill a child-care void for parents who need to work.


What are your thoughts? Where do you stand on this topic? Do you have another idea for us to consider? Support your answer!

Now looking at this post makes me think if we should have done the option for the elementary kids. They honestly need it the most. I have a 7-year-old brother who has yet to learn a single thing in school this year because all he is getting are packets of review from things they learned last year. This coronavirus thing has gotten too far, who knows when it will end. Things will never be the same afterward.

It is interesting to re-visit this topic now that we're approaching the end of the first 9 weeks. I'd have to agree with you Abe! My son is in second grade, and the hoops the small children have to jump through are tremendous! Plus, they really do need the social interaction in order to fully develop!
