    This honestly really shouldn't be terribly hard. Something like as follows is entirely rational based on evidence-based medicine.

    1) If a student lives in a home with a person >=60 (e.g. grandparent) that student gets home-schooled for the semester until 3 weeks post vaccination.

    2) If a student lives in a home with anyone immunocompromised (any age), that student gets home-schooled for the semester until 3 weeks post vaccination.

    3) If a student lives in a home with anyone with a comorbidity (any age), that student gets home-schooled for the semester until 3 weeks post vaccination.

    4) Any teacher or teacher domiciling with a person falling into #1, #2, or #3 above stays home for the semester, and does not return until 3 weeks post vaccination.

    5) All current, best practice, CDC recommended social distancing is followed.

    6) Masks are worn in the classroom

    You follow the above & probably 95% of kids and teachers could safely return to the classroom tomorrow.
    Super easy, huh? You have no clue dude. Trying to maintain order in the halls and keep students socially distanced is not easy. They want to socially interact and keeping them separated will not be easy. What's the penalty for not, detentions?

    I have heard some schools are considering having students remain in one classroom at their desk all day long, have teacher's rotate and even have lunch at their desks (cater in from the cafe to class rooms). But can you really picture kids sitting at their desk for a 7 hour or so day? Nothing is easy about this.

    As of now, our district is a choice for parents, full time in or full time remote. Remote will involve televised classes online the remote students will join in/follow. However, there are currently no options for the teachers, they have to be in person. The union is pushing for a remote choice for them as well, but how that would actually work with in school students remains to be figured out (assuming they clear the first hurdle).

    NOTHING, I REPEAT NOTHING on returning to school in this time is EASY or straightforward!!

    I'm figuring reservations will be the norm and not the exception this year, full season pass holders included.

    Do you mean the way school was taught for most of all recorded human history with the exception of the last roughly 70 to 80'ish years?

    Sorry, I just dont see kids being in one room sans bathroom breaks as being the helter-skelter, madness & chaos some here are describing it as, especially using history as a guide. Frankly, I dont even understand that opinion. Perhaps describe it so I can.

    You do what you have to do sometimes to get by, and I'm of the opinion that keeping kids out of school is far worse than the alternative. Again, it's not the kids you have to worry about, it's a limited number of teachers that would be in danger. Those teachers generally know who they are & should remain home.

    DHS is ignoring a very important fact in regard to his school district. Since the district is offering a choice between online learning and in person learning, the higher risk teachers will be selected to staff online learning. The teachers that are at much lower risk will be the ones who are actually in the classroom.

    You are an idiot. High school students have different classes and no one has the same classes. You do live in some weird bubble of existence.
    It would work in elementary school but not high school.
