That alternating schedule is a ridiculous plan. They did the same for my daughter's children in S.C. so her kids are now enrolled in private school, full time schedule. Parents cannot work with rotating schedules.

One of the larger school systems in the area, Chapel Hill, just announced no in person classes now until Jan at the earliest.

Also the UNC systems, which includes 16 universities, is getting sued by faculty and staff demanded no return to campus in the fall.

It's not going to be much of an issue there, I assure you.

Students moved back on campus at UNC and the Isolation rooms setup for those with the virus are almost full. Only 3 left.

This is all just ridiculous. We live in a world that is so litigious and political that we simply destroy ourselves.

Be ruled by God, or by god you will be ruled.

What does politics have to do with UNC's situation?

Going to be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few weeks with students moving back on campus.

A lot of classes are already going online, so a good portion of these kids are paying tuition and housing to get there and sit in their rooms on a computer.

I wouldn't be surprised if they send everyone back home at some point, similar to the situation back in March. Hopefully that won't be the case.

Any college that believes they can go to in-person class and survive is a great little test case for what we've been watching. This epidemic loves a crowded room, loves a social setting, and loves it when people feel bullet-proof enough not to take much for precautions. All things that will be constant at schools and colleges.

Yeah I think schools resuming is going to be a disaster. It's really as if school administrators across the country had a collective "oh shit" moment a month ago when they realized things weren't in a good spot to return to in person classes and have been flying by the seat of their pants ever since. It should serve as a damning indictment of the administrative side of education in this country, but it probably won't for most people.

Another promising tool in the fight against Covid. I don't like the news source, but even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and again.

I don't think the classroom will be nearly as big of a problem as dormitory living. There's no way you can cram that many people in such a small living space and not expect any communicable disease to just run through the building like wildfire. You can at least control social distancing and capacity somewhat in a classroom with smaller classes, larger lecture halls, etc. In a dorm, there's going to be close quarters no matter what.

I've said for months that everyone going back to campus for college this fall should expect to be exposed to the virus before Christmas. I suspect most students will contract it, and the reality is nearly every college student who catches it will shake it off fairly quickly. I'd be wary for at-risk people living in college towns, though.

Dorms aren't what they used to be at least. These days they're putting kids into suites with 2-3 roommates and they all get their own bedrooms and only share a bathroom with the other people in the suite. The large communal bathroom and two twin beds in an oversized walk in closet style dorm has gradually fallen out of use over the last 15-20 years.

It just has to get bad enough.

I can imagine that each school district and state would offer its own strategy. Exactly what constitutes an outbreak in a school? Two cases? twenty? Plans call for rooms in schools where students can “quarantine” if necessary — but how long can that be sustained before fear starts running through the building? These kids are often asymptomatic at their age and can maintain a school schedule even if they have the virus. Interacting with older ones after school has yet to be seen. There are a ton of demographics that don't exist yet with the school-age kids and COVID.

Now that our young ones are being put on the front lines, I think all of us are about to have our convictions and politics put to the ultimate test.

Trussville has already said that parents won't even be notified if a child in one of their kids' classes tests positive. They've also instructed teachers not to answer any questions to that effect.

And if the child dies?
