Kids are gonna bring home the virus.
I just keep my head down and make note of the fact that I am the only adult on campus that always wears at least 6 layers of mask, plastic face shield, and gloves. I also refuse to eat on campus unless it is in my car. I only drink from bottles that have screw-top lids that I have brought from home and store in my personal mini-fridge. I can’t depend on anyone except me, and the nurses (because they take it seriously), to keep me out of danger. As for the other, it’s impossible to prove in an “at will” state.
After two days, they retracted that part and said that what they “meant” was that they would “try to find us a different position” in the district. I’ll be 59 tomorrow and I use a wheelchair. Do you think they will make much of an effort to place me in a different position unless they can figure out a hefty pay cut?
There’s not enough room on most campuses to stay socially distant and everyone eats lunch at school with no mask on. Prepare for the next spike now.
We have almost 2500 kids and around 250+ adults at the high school where I work. There is absolutely no way, even if 20% of the kids decide to do online learning, to keep them socially distant from each other. Masks will be required for everyone EXCEPT during P.E., athletics, band, and maybe choir. Masks are not required when eating and there will be three lunch times during the day.
Do the math. Then watch for the spike in Texas.
Ooooo, the school district is requiring that all students and employees wear masks or be sent home. Just like they did with the dress code for the last twenty years. Oh wait.
Less high blood pressure, more enjoyment of life for some, but not for all.
The one the employees of our school district got said “Are you comfortable returning to the campus to work? If yes, then report to your campus on August 12th. If no, contact HR.”
Um… No, I am NOT comfortable returning to a high school campus but I am the only wage earner in my family so I really don’t have a choice. And if ANYONE tries to come near me without PROPERLY wearing the required mask, then I don’t care if my nasty old science offends their pwecious widdle feewings. They can just stay away.
“What is she saying out loud?” Lupin just graciously allowed her to wear his hat and she immediately calls him a jerk. That girl need to learn some manners.
