I always feel like August is the beginning of back to school time. Of course, this year things are just bizarre, but I still feel like it should be back to school time.
Locally, our public schools have all chosen to remain 100% virtual for at least the first quarter. I suspect they’ll continue to extend virtual only through the entire school year. I don’t blame them – our schools are over crowded and that’s not a great situation when you’re trying to distance. On the other hand, I feel for the parents who are trying to figure out how to make it work as many in this area rely on two incomes to survive.
It just doesn’t seem like there are any solutions where everyone wins.
I’m grateful that we were already homeschooling (and that we have been in a position where it works for our family and we’re able to make that choice) so the current upheaval in the world doesn’t impact us as much on the school front.
But we’re praying for our public school friends. Because this is hard for so many.
What are the schools near you doing?
