I will not be able to attend this announcement (I have work meetings today) but will post the video from the announcement on this article below.

I am betting there will be a press release later in the day outlining items made in the announcement and I will have that online this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

  1. So vaccinated students have to wear masks all day
    (If Delta that bad a virtual option should be offered)but most of the speakers lowered or took them off.
    Tired of the hypocrisy- if you can’t speak into the mic with a mask how is a teacher supposed to talk all day.
    Classic case of do as I say not as I do
    And the super said he looks forward to having students back for normalized instruction-don’t insult us
    It’s not normal if you have a mask on indoors all day.

    Just for the record I am not opposed to mask requirements in most cases – just believe virtual learning should be offered until it’s safe


  2. I am so sick of “urgent” updates that are just more if the same. I really don’t care about “cases” and infection rate, I care about deaths and those are down.
