We need our Miller Driscoll and Cider Mill students to go back to school in person 5 days a week.

Quarantine was implemented so as to not overwhelm our healthcare system and compromise our ability to care for the sick. It’s now August. Our healthcare system is not overburdened.

Somehow, the dialogue and goals have been moved from the point of something specific (i.e. healthcare capacity) to something more ambiguous like “keeping ourselves and others safe.” 

Many believe the hybrid and distance learning school options being promoted are simply virtues of an educated citizen and not a fear-based reaction. But when the goals were moved to the ambiguous, those became fear-based measures.

Alternate school schedules with half the population of students in the classroom, alternating days in school, and online are only providing half an education. They deserve the whole.

What we fear more than a virus is the loss of connectedness, community, education, and income for millions and millions of people.

We need our Miller Driscoll and Cider Mill students to go back to school in person 5 days a week.
