The funds for testing have already been provided by the state, but the individual districts decide if they wish to test or not. Unfortunately, it might create more problems by choosing to test when cases are identified.

First two days in class were very full, but the kids were mellow. Not enough time to eat the lunches as the kids have to be moved quickly from the tables to create space for the next students.

They need to move to IVA soon otherwise the longer kids stay in school more people will wake up and see the truth.

I am kinda torn between IVA and traditional school for my 5th grader. IVA is a the way to go if safety is paramount, but this  would mean almost 3rd year in row doing remote learning and kids will miss on aspects of overall development that they only get in a regular school setting. Educational stuff - kids can learn online or thru parents/tutors but the social interaction and how they learn from peers, all that how do we substitute in a remote setting.

Its a hard decision for a parent to make. I am hoping that i can finally make my mind to switch to IVA or not by early next week. Right now IUSD has paused immediate transfers to IVA to minimize class changes.

Well, this isn't good. LA Times reporting that an entire elementary school class in Hollywood is in quarantine due to an outbreak (7 children in one class infected).

Los Angeles school officials on Wednesday confirmed the first coronavirus outbreak in the district at Grant Elementary School in Hollywood, sending home an entire classroom of children.

“The cases are concentrated in a single classroom and Los Angeles Unified is fully cooperating with the Department of Public Health,” the district said in a statement. “The district has alerted all those potentially impacted and the quarantined class has been provided with instructional materials to continue their studies.”

An outbreak is defined as three or more cases over 14 days that are likely linked to one another. Wednesday was the eighth day of classes in the nation’s second-largest school system. Up through Tuesday afternoon, the district had reported no cases linked to spread at a school setting since the start of the academic year.

At 10 p.m. Tuesday, the district updated its online dashboard — which reports school-based infections — to record the seven linked cases at Grant. L.A. Unified is conducting the most ambitious school-based coronavirus testing program in the nation, with mandatory testing for all on campus once a week. Officials say this is leading to early detection of cases and allows for quicker action to contain the spread of the virus.

Yahoo News says 17.

LAUSD dashboard says 16 with 7 of those as school based transmission.

The kids hopefully will be and by expectations, should be okay.  It’ll be interesting to see how LAUSD’s testing progresses.

An unvaccinated, unmasked California elementary school teacher who came to school in May even while visibly sick infected a dozen students with the coronavirus, all too young to be immunized, according to a report published Friday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The teacher, who works at a K-8 elementary school in Marin County, was one of only two staff members that had not been vaccinated. Among the teacher’s 24 students, 22 were tested and 12 tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the report, written by county health officials and experts with UC Berkeley, UC Davis and UC Santa Cruz.

Four parents of children at the school were later infected in the outbreak, which involved the Delta variant, according to the report. Of the infected parents, one was unvaccinated, while three were vaccinated. Vaccinated parents in the outbreak experienced symptoms including fever, chills, cough, headache and loss of smell.
