Would you go?

Would you go to work in an empty classroom? My district says for now subs have to report to school and not use the computers at home.My district is fully virtual.It may become hybrid in the future.

My main concern is the restrooms, they say Covid-19 spread throughout the mist of the flush too. Also I am not comfortable going to a school, prefer WFH.
Pretty sure all the teachers will be expected to work from school.

God knows how many will follow social distancing and mask rules.


What would you do ?

I would have no problem working at school.

The problem I have is not knowing how to use the computer.

I am with both of you , one of my districts is doing the same thing and it looks like itís only three hours a day which means a lot less pay and itís already my lowest paying district. I do not have the technology skills needed and the idea that Iím being monitored and watched the entire time and thereís no time to run to the restroom between classes, I am still really unsure what Iím gonna do. I am proceeding with online training and we will see.

It defeats the whole purpose of virtual learning. Wouldnít risk exposure for a half day of pay.

My husband agrees

He is telling me why I should risk of exposure and go to the school to sub, if they cannot offer work at home then perhaps I should not do it.

Looks like most of you agree with him, I am super confused.


If Covid -19 can spread thru vents, toilet flushes and even touched surfaces why won't these districts offer WFH choices , why do they ask as to goto the school and sit in an empty classroom.


What scares me is exposure, will the staff there wear masks, will it spread if by accident I touch an infected paper, will I goto the restroom and catch it etectect...hats off to BODHIMOM!

I wish I had the guts to sub in an empty classroom. I prefer WFH... it does defeat virtual learning if subs are still going to school, right ?

What the districts are saying, to the teachers, too, is that working from home is going to have a lot of distractions. Teachers/subs will be watching their kids and not be 100% teaching.

If you tell the district that you are absolutely terrified to go to the school, and you can do it from home, they might let you. Some districts are making exceptions.

Just a reminder that the teacher in Az who died this summer was sharing a room with her husband and another teacher. They were teaching virtually from the classroom and she died and the other two got very sick. They were following all of the protocols and social distancing. I just donít think the buildings are safe to be in if they donít have up to date ventilation.

Thanks a lot, for reminding me. I did some research, it looks like many teachers have either passed away or been affected by Covid-19.

Best to skip this year, if they ask us to come. Ain't worth our life.

What are you talking about most teachers have passed away? Where were the teachers who passed away? I know about the one in Arizona, but Iím not sure what youíre referring to in terms of the rest. Thanks

Source? I see you are a 'Guest' as well. Sourcing would be very important for you to put this out there.

This virus has forced each of us to do what is best for us. Think of yourself and your family. Choose what works for you.

Just did a Google search on nationwide and worldwide news articles on teachers affected by schools reopening. Looks like many (NOT most) were affected by Covid and in some cases it was fatal.
I am not taking that risk. I will sub next year.

You can try searching.

I doubt if there is anybody, teacher or not, that has not been affected by covid.
