We asked parents for their actual NEED for busses since they can't be full. Many parents said they are able to drive or walk, so we had enough "drop out" that distancing on the bus isn't a problem.

1. Moderna
2. Just 1 so far.

I'm glad you posted this! I remember doing it with a class years ago but I had forgotten about it. I have a few this year that I think would benefit. Time to retrain myself!

I only had a sore arm for a few days. Most of my peer were the same, with a few getting a headache.

Funny enough, our entire yard duty staff was out today with "reactions" - even though not one...

I didn't really do anything. :o We did some "first day" type of stuff, and kept it fairly mellow and fun, but nothing really out of the ordinary. Maybe you could do some kind of partner game or...

The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson - a terrific biography of Churchill that reads like a novel.

I just don't think there are a lot of new movies. COVID really took a hit on production.

1. Yes, but they don't really like me.
2. Both, but I'm deathly allergic to cats.
3. No
4. Sourdough
5. Hmmm... I'm not sure. I have a lot I've listened to for 30+ years - does that count?

We haven't discussed the possibility, but I dearly hope we do not. I think a lot will depend on the availability of the vaccine and if it's given to kids.

I'm fortunate that we dismiss at lunch. But if I was going a full day I think I'd save that time for art, hands-on science, activity time and videos.

The teachers at my school that are doing hybrid (3-6 grades) are asking for all kids to come back. They are dying on the vine trying to do remote and in person at the same time.

We are not allowed to have them. I had the same thoughts as you, but honestly the kids are totally fine and so happy to talk to each other and be together. I don't think you'll need them.
