Kids need to be at school to learn to read and write. They need school because it is their right to be as educated as everyone else. Depriving them proper education will lead kids to be illiterate. They will fall behind and it will take years for them to recover, if they they ever recover. Parents can teach their kids for only short periods of time not for entire school year when they need to work to keep food on the table and paid bills. Schools have done fantastic job to keep children safe and will continue doing so because parents, teachers and students are working hard on their and as well for it to work.

Children need in class learning with peers. Social skills are crucial and cannot be taught online. I also speak for my students, they need me in person not on a screen!

Please stop lying to general public. Schools must stay open... kids do not suffer from covid and the only reason the schools are closed is the teachers are scared to work because of the massive mental pressure that this government "health experts" have been putting on them. I grew up in Soviet Union and I know how easy it is to get overage people scared. When my son's school says that they care for kids safety I don't believe a bit as the school board is the same as any corporate structure that only has lyability in mind and teachers unions are well in tune with it. Sorry for word salad but I am very dissapointed at our gutless leadership at all levels: provincial and federal.

I am a mother of 4. 1 in elementary and 3 in high school. Online with very difficult with needing 4 computers for them to do their work on. We also live in a region where we have very low cases and our school and the surrounding schools in the same town have yet to have a case. Our kids should not be punished because of the privinces numbers coming from larger hot spots.
