The Houston County School Board is planning on having in-person classes starting August 6th. While Georgia continues to have cases soar, they believe it is safe for classes to start again. Counties around us are starting in early September and late August, and though parents have expressed concerns and frustrations, they continued to ignore them. Many teacher’s smallest classes contain 25 students, and in no way, shape, or form, can we keep a 6 feet distance in a packed classroom. Multiple sports teams in the county cannot even start until a later date due to them being exposed to Covid-19 at practices. These students will miss the first week or two of school, and many of them will not have their first day of their senior year with their friends. The online option given to students was harsh and basically told students if they stayed at home, they could not take any electives, participate in any extracurriculars, and they would be disqualified for valedictorian, which is unfair and prevents many scholarship opportunities. We need to postpone school until late August or early September for the sake of the lives of families, teachers, and students.
