I agree. In the email from the school, it said that bathrooms would only be open during lunch. Can you imagine a bunch of kids having to hold it until lunchtime and then everyone racing to use the bathroom before it gets too crowded and they have to wait??I think the back and forth is harder for kids anyway. Most do better with a routine.
That makes almost no sense at all to me. Lets avoid congregating by making everyone go at once. I don’t know how much time they get for lunch; but that probably isn’t enough to both eat (possibly with a long lunch line) and get through a bathroom line.I agree.

Lunch would be an hour long. Youngest will be a Senior next year so I really want him to have some of those "in school" experiences but they want to clamp down on weird stuff.That makes almost no sense at all to me.

It's a pretty large school. Only high school in our area so all the kids from the different elementary and middle schools go there.How big is the school? I remember we had 3 lunch periods and at least 5 lunch lines including the salad bar. They still had long lines just to get food. I don’t really remember how long we had for lunch though. It sure wasn’t an hour.
I was fine with youngest continuing with online school since he was doing so well but he wanted to go back. I bet the numbers for the elementary and maybe the Middle School are a lot higher than what it was for the High School.I think most parents that are pushing for this have given up on this year they are wanting to make sure that schools are open again in the fall. Ohio put teachers and school employees between the 70 and 65 year old people for vaccinations and held clinics at the school so everyone employed by the schools had the opportunity to be vaccinated. There were some other demands by the union as well. I think this is all about opening again in the fall.
He's almost 17 so getting anything out of him besides a grunt is pretty hard. Can't really say how his firsr two days went. He will only be going Mon-Thurs every other week. I will ask him tomorrow if he wants to go back to 100% online and see what he says.How did he feel about it after being back?
We only have 1 quarter left to the year here; so I could see some just waiting for next year.
I would have freaked. I was standing at the bus stop when my youngest was little and the bus drove right past me. I thought maybe they were going to drop off the others and turn around so my son could get off with the door on the correct side. Bus came back and started to drive past me again. I yelled and the bus stopped. I asked where my son was. Driver told me he wasn't on the bus. I went home to call the school but saw a message that the school had called when I was at the bus stop. Son missed the bus and needed to be picked up.Yesterday was the boys first day. AM bus was 8 minutes late. Hey that’s not bad for the first day. PM bus was a different story. After waiting an hour after my kids were supposed to be home I called the school, no answer I tried the office, attendance and security. I had to look up the transportation dept number as the school had given me the wrong number. The transportation dept was very pleasant and informed me the kids were still in the school after an hour and fifteen minutes. Many parents were calling. I’m upset because the school should have answered the phone or sent out a robocall or left an outgoing message that the kids would be detained in the gymnasium. So or instead of getting home at 3:09 they got home at 4:43.
