I’M DISGUSTED! Didn’t all health organizations and all health officials say we have to do social distancing, sanitize, wear masks, etc.. to prevent the spread of Covid 19? Our countries all level of governments n police enforcement were requesting the public to follow the rules and even new laws were made to get people to follow the laws. Health official always said our young ones and the elderlies are the most vulnerable and they shouldn’t go out unnecessarily. SO WHAT CHANGED? Oh I know, $$$$$$ It’s always about that. Our kids education is not above their health or anything else for that matter. NO HEALTHY KIDS, NO EDUCATION. STOP playing with humans lives. DO NOT OPEN THE SCHOOLS.

Class sizes need to be reduced in order to practice safe social distancing!

As a teacher and a parent, I know what flu season looks like in schools (multiple students in every class absent due to illness). I know what classrooms look like when the stomach flu passes around the school (multiple students absent in most classrooms AND many students who get sick and vomit at school). If we can't keep these illnesses out of our schools, then how can we keep CORONA VIRUS away? I've always had students return to school once they get well after an illness. I can't imagine how awful everyone would feel if a student who got sick from CORONA just...never came back. These are our children. We can't gamble with their lives!!

I do not feel it is safe for children or staff to go into classrooms without a better plan.

Children need to be at a safe social distance from one another if they ate returning to school in September. Masks for all Grades need to be made mandatory or a face shield at least. This is ridiculous to think our children should not have the same rules that apply to the general population. Parliament and city halls havent even come back to the table hours on end working together but let's reopen schools and do this to our children. What a joke this is. I am so upset. My daughter is in Grade 3 and masks are not being mandated. I am so upset and have been sick to my stomach since this was announced school reopen. Things need to change.
