If masks work then our children need to be in a structured learning environment where they can thrive.

Distance learning isn’t practical for all students especially those with special needs. Our children need to be back in the classroom.

The children are struggling to learn on line, especially in math. They are losing self confidence in their abilities as learners, and their previous enthusiasm about school is dissipating. I am worried that they may lose ground they can never make up. On line learning not only impedes their academic development. Their social and emotional development is negatively impacted as well.

I have asked what is the criteria for being able to return to school full time and apparently there isn’t any. I don’t understand this. I also don’t understand why we seem to be the only district in our area that isn’t prioritizing getting elementary back to full time. Many around us either are full time or have announced a date when they will be. We have heard nothing from our district. I moved here for the schools but I’ve been very disappointed by the amount of communication between the district and parents during this time. Tell us why you are making these decisions! But, I guess if there is no set criteria, then what are they going to say?

The education of my children and my communities is very important and cannot beaccomplished by using this prescribed AB schedule. They need one on one geaching and not stairing at a computer screen.

Online learning is not beneficial for students socially emotionally or academically. Students need human relationships in person to make connections and motivate themselves for learning. Online learning is unreliable.

All kids need to be in school. They need face to face instruction and to be able to socialize. Parents need to be able to work and socialize also!! This helps both mentally and physically in both the parents and their children. We cannot continue to live in fear. We only have 1 life and we all need to LIVE!!

My daughter deserves in class education. She is expected in first grade to navigate a laptop and do her school work virtually independently at a daycare while both of her parents work. It’s perfectly fine for her to sit in daycare but she can’t in a classroom?? Give me a break.
