Our school district will be online-only when it opens on 8/13, all the way through 9/7.  At that point they say they'll revert to the split model of some kids on-campus and some online-only, however parents had previously chosen.

However, I don't see any reason it will be any more, nor less safe, on 9/8, than it is right now.  And it won't be any more, nor less safe, on 10/8.  Or 11/8.  Or 12/8. 

This is just some "kick the can down the road" behavior to keep parents quiet about wanting in-person school. 

We're planning on yanking our kids from public school and putting them into pods.
Bean pods?

I think we should pass a resolution to get serious about the Federal budget deficit in 2030.

Ha!  I had no idea there was a controversy over terminology.  But I'm certainly not surprised! :)

Well, if you don't read XKCD, you should start.

Never even heard of it, but it sounds like it's up my alley-- "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language."

I'm pretty sure the above circuit diagram is exactly what I designed in my senior lab, when I was supposed to be creating a 16-bit RISC CPU in fast TTL logic.

We start school on Monday - online only.  For now, it's online-only until Aug 17th, but that date may be moved.  It's up to the school board, as our state leader and national leader have obfuscated their influences.  

I'm the "online only" teacher for my grade level, as in I'll be teaching that way as long as there are students not showing up in person.  So it's possible I could teach all year without meeting my students...which sucks.  

Overall, for this virus, at least we have an example of what NOT to do.  During the next one (and there will be a next one), we must not set arbitrary dates over and over and after several have passed, setting arbitrary dates to re-open.  That's what we've done:  back in April, we started the "hope and wait ___ weeks" thing.  Wait 2 weeks, and hopefully it'll be better.  Wait a month and hopefully it'll be better.  Wait 2 months, and eh, it's not really better, but it's not worse, so let's re-open.  

Half-measures and hope are garbage strategies.  A hardcore shutdown for 3 weeks would make sense.  Go out, gather your food and bullets and toilet paper for the next 3 weeks, because everyone is on lockdown.  

As long as we hold fast to our freedom to spread the disease, our freedom will imprison us.

I agree there will be another one.

I think it's unlikely the public will tolerate another actual lockdown in the face of a virus similar to this one.  It'll have to be "bodies lining the streets" bad before the public will allow it to happen again.

I won't make a value judgment on that statement, and it's certainly just my opinion, but that's what I see happening, realistically.

People only have so much patience. The balance between selfishness and body count has gone the expected direction.
