It is not safe for young kids to visit grandparents. Not safe because the kids can be asymptomatic carriers. Kids still get the virus and they can still pass it on, even if they themselves are not in danger, or much danger, their parents and grandparents can catch it from them and have a much worse case. Who would say that is safe?
Teachers are not medical professionals, and the prospect of bring kids back to school is going to have to depend on the opinions of people who are virus experts. This situation doesn't seem safe to me until there is a vaccine or at least a very effective treatment, because even though kids don't often get very sick from covid , they can be very efficient spreaders.I am not a teacher. However this whole thing has caused me to have to be to my daughter. She’s only in kindergarten so all of her work has been sent home and fortunately we don’t have to do any online work. However, I am not equipped to give my daughter the education she needs. She’s very smart, but she hates doing school work so it’s a fight every morning to get her started. I can’t imagine having to do this all over again in the fall but if that’s what I have to do, of course I’ll do it. I just think that there has to be some way that we can get our kids back to school. I don’t even pretend to have any answers as to how though. I’ll leave that up to the professionals.
it’s sad that you had to retire early due to all of this. I talked to my sister in law yesterday who is a teacher, and she said she’s missing her students terribly. I imagine you could get pretty attached to your students and when some of them you know don’t have a good home life, it’s that much worse, because when they’re at school with you, at least you know they’re being taken care of.
