Should We Go Remote?

Should We Go Remote?

I believe that we should have a couple weeks of school off. I’m not saying that we should go remote for the rest of the quarter or anything. I think we should go online for 2-3 weeks. Everyone who has COVID or is just sick in general can heal and become well again. Then, we open school back up again and everyone is healthy and ready to go. People are going left and right currently. There are so many versions of Covid, the flu is out there, and people are just getting common colds. On Monday we were missing about 20% of our students.  Positive covid case numbers are sky-high right now. Northmont can barely find any subs and bus drivers. Teachers are having to sub for so many other classes that can’t find any subs. Teachers are almost always out because of Covid. They come to school with a common cold when they should be resting. Unless they are puking or are positive for COVID teachers come to school. Teachers’ planning time is slowly getting shorter and shorter. Kids don’t wear their masks right and it’s almost impossible to social distance. Personally, I would love to stay in school with all of my friends and teachers. I don’t think that it is a smart idea to keep school open right now. I think the longer we wait to close school the longer we will have to be closed for. In conclusion, I think that we should take a break from school for no more than 3 weeks.
