1. Oh, Jeez. This is going to be a death trap for me. Because when a confirmed case

enters the school, that means the confirmed case has already been moving around the school for 2 weeks.

2. I could not find the quote, but Trump said something about 60 and older staff...

...needing to take care or something. It was a question that came from a reporter during yesterday's Trump interview.

I'm sorry for not having more details but it has my wife concerned, she was born in 55.

3. I can see schools going to a hybrid system.

Classes are a bit less than 1/2 size, kids come in every other day or two days a week. If every other day, then teachers get an extra conference period; if twice a week, teachers have one day conference.

The extra conference would be for dealing with all the online stuff--assignments, quizzes, etc.--as well as faculty meetings and PLCs or even ARDs. Students come in for tutoring, for testing, for labs.

Worst of all possible worlds.

I think districts would love/hate it, because then they'd assume that they're in charge of every lesson. Some of our administrators like that idea--they don't like that maybe something in one school isn't the same as something at a different school. They respect diversity by implementing things in lockstep. We each have our own style in working through the required content, using the same materials and problems so they get the same test. Gag.

4. Problem is, I'm not a teacher. I provide a medical service through schools.

We're doing it remotely now but I can't imagine Medicaid paying for that much longer, which means we'll be pulled back in.

I'm in a number of schools including hospital schools.
