I heard that our county ed and health may come to an agreement that 4-6 ft is acceptable for social distancing in the schools. So much for CDC guidelines.

say 3 feet is acceptable. There's so much we don't know. We do know that children are the least likely to get COVID though, so 4-6 feet might be a reasonable amount. Four to six feet and getting an hands on/eyes on education in primary grades would be better than emergency instruction in isolation, IMO.

Interesting how that works sometimes, isn't it?

We will have half the kids and they have to be 6ft apart. But when they ride the bus they can ride 2 to a seat if necessary.

As far as I can tell, this is all a bunch of “feel safe.” I don’t believe for a second that someone standing 73 inches away won’t catch the plague as easily as someone standing 71 inches away, but what do I know about it?

I'm going to be honest here, I really thought this was a post about something else and was hoping it was Hifi returning.
Miss that guy.

Just had a press conference. 3 feet is acceptable since between 3-6 feet the contagion possibility is negligible.

Ugh

This whole thing is scary. I wouldn't care what "they" think is acceptable. I'm staying as far away as I possibly can. I know all day at school's going to be tough. I kept saying in various threads here that I don't know how schools are even going to do ALL these precautions and the younger the kids, the harder it will be. Little kids aren't going to be as diligent about keeping distance, keeping the masks on, washing hands, not putting fingers in mouths, touching their classmates' stuff, staggering recesses and lunches with only several going throughout the day, people complaining that their lunch is too early, etc., etc., etc.

From the moment kinds have to load up on the school bus, only a few can be on the bus if we're really going to try to stay 6 ft apart and that's even before the school day even starts. I just don't know. I wish/hope they continue the social distancing.

Oh yeah me too. We are likely able to have 14 students in our class with 6 feet in between. Forget small groups. I have no idea how to even help students at this point when we are spaced apart. Seriously they should consider distance learning for all for half the year but I know they won't.

I bought a piece of Plexiglass to separate a table for 2 students. I had been thinking that everyone would need their own spot. I am hoping that we can separate kids if there is Plexiglass (and maybe a mask).

Kids and adults will struggle with the current regulations of keeping 6' apart all day and not mixing with other grades. Our kids can't even using the playground equipment or mix with other grades. Basically, stay with your class all. day. long. Yikes!
