Lets get back to face to face, this stuff is a waste of time...

NYC Catholic Schools Set to Return to Fully In-Person Classes, 5 Days A Week
The Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Brooklyn announced Tuesday that their schools will reopen in September for in-person classes full time, five days a week
"Ninety-five percent of our schools are planning a 100 percent in-person instruction starting in September," said Joan McMaster, the associate superintendent for the Diocese. "The remaining will be the five percent, which will be doing a hybrid program."
Parents were given a choice if they'd like to enroll their children remotely, and roughly 500 parents opted for that – about three percent of the total student population.

"For those parents who wish to keep their children home still, they're not completely comfortable with everything that is going on, we have created the St. Thomas Aquinas distance learning Catholic program. That is a complete remote program," said McMaster.

I know some parents who took their kids to Taiwan, and are doing distance learning at 2AM...LOL.  Normal life in Taiwan except for the midnight to morning classes.

Perfect. Hit up night markets and then go to school. I'm down for that life haha except Taiwan weather is humid as balls right now.

Wait...have you checked Southern California weather in the last month?

Georgia only closed a portion of the whole 30,000 still in school and Notre Dame is on a two week pause but will re open fully. We should too. Notre Dame High and Mount Saint Marys are fully opening face to face.

This sounds just likely what Abbot and DeSantis said in June.

So...the places that started face to face are now going to remote but we should go to face-to-face?

I mean..it's just like the flu!  No long term effects!

Georgia State freshman quarterback Mikele Colasurdo announced he will not play this season due to a recently-diagnosed heart condition after he became infected with COVID-19.

"I am very thankful for everyone who has reached out and prayed for me," Colasurdo wrote Thursday in a statement posted to his Twitter account.

LOL...that's because private schools need the tuition money.  It's the same reason why the charter school loving members of OC Board of Education pretended that COVID was not a real thing and that kids should not wear masks because hey...they are not going to keep them on anyways.

During the meeting in Costa Mesa Monday night, most of the 22 speakers allowed to address the board said they want schools to return to normal. One of those speakers was Jeff Barke, the husband of Board President Mari Barke.

A former school board member at Los Alamitos Unified, Jeff Barke is also a doctor who has shared his views against face masks on social media and while demonstrating in Huntington Beach. He helped found a charter school in Orange with a curriculum focused on “classical education.” On Monday night, he thanked the board for another stance they took during their meeting: a resolution urging the California Legislature and Gov. Newsom to support funding for growing school districts and charter schools.

You think rich people are going to send their kids back to school?  They just hire private tutors.

https://www.vox.com/the-goods/2020/8/6/21354637/pandemic-learning-pods-private-tutoring

It's like all those rural county megachurch who need the donation plate so they are willing to risk the lives of their staff and the congregations. 

Again...stop with the "I care about society or freedom" front..just say, "money is more important than poor people" and save everyone a lot of time and energy.

UNC-Chapel Hill has seen the highest number of coronavirus cases of the 17 UNC System institutions, given available data from each institution.

UNC’s COVID-19 dashboard was updated Monday afternoon to show 135 new COVID-19 cases reported in students and employees last week. Shortly after this data update, the University sent a formal notice shifting all undergraduate courses to remote instruction beginning Wednesday.

As of Wednesday, UNC has reported six COVID-19 clusters — four in student residences and two in off-campus fraternity houses.

According to the formal notice, the University had tested 954 students as of Monday morning. Between both on and off-campus spaces, 177 students were in isolation and 349 were in quarantine since then.

The positivity rate for UNC-Chapel Hill's coronavirus cases last week was 13.6 percent, nearly five times the 2.8 percent positivity rate reported the previous week, when classes had not yet begun

I mean...you would think the "it will go away if we ignore it" position has been debunked already but yet here we still are...
