I hope I haven't just made a horrible mistake. My school is getting ready to bring kids back in increments. I teach 2nd grade, and we are due to have students back on November 9th. Our families have the option of keeping their children on Distance Learning or switching to Blended Learning, which means students will attend 2 days in class, 1 day virtual, and the other 2 work independently. Our principal said due to our numbers for 2nd grade, we may need 2 teachers to stay on Distance Learning. Another teacher already volunteered, and today I said that if nobody else wanted to stay on Distance Learning, I would do it. My main reason is that I have an 89-year-old mother that I visit every week, so I really try to keep myself safe from germs whenever possible. My hope is that, since parents have a choice, the students who stay on Distance Learning will have motivation to try hard. Wish me luck!

Well, I wish you well. It was a good call on your part, you will still be able to see your mom.

I think that was a smart offer. I hope it all works out for the best.

We’ve been in person since mid August, full classes with masks and desk shields and pods, and no cases. It can be done!

Munchkin, we're in Ohio and have been face-to-face since August with no cases as well.

Our 1400 person semi rural district has been hybrid all year. Full remote this week and next because at least one bus driver tested positive, so all drivers are quarantined.
