And oh my goodness, leave the kids alone. Face shields are highly ineffective. Just let kids be.

Masks won’t save us. Let kids be kids. Once you’re in a poorly ventilated and hot classroom for over 6 hours it won’t matter. Stop forcing kids into wearing them.

Just weeks before schools reopen, BC sees a spike in child cases of COVID. 41 children were infected last week. The total number of cases in children had been 204 so that's a 20% increase. Worrisome.

Can you ask them why they are ignoring advice from and forcing students and educators into the 3C’s please?

And let’s not forget Ford and Lecce are blatantly ignoring advice from to avoid the 3 C’s at all costs! They are forcing students and educators into the 3C’s! No, I can’t just choose to work from home as a teacher!

So Quebec has a plan with groups of 6 kids and New Brunswick with classes of 15 in elementary isn’t superior to ours with class sizes of up to 35-40 in elementary? The math doesn’t add up!

You say don’t double or triple dip, but the ministry of education in Ontario is forcing us to in elementary by maintaining regular class sizes. They are saying that it’s okay. That’s a lot of misinformation coming from the government.

So then we shouldn’t go back to school like Lecce says because we’ll be in a high target 3 C’s situation? Maybe you should dispel the information the Ontario ministry of Ed is sharing. They are saying this is okay. It’s not okay.

This is ridiculous. It states right here everything has an extended expiration date and “we will notify you when it’s time to renew”.

What about in September when we go back to school and are forced into the 3 C’s? Vulnerable children and their educators will have no choice. That’s right, I can’t just choose to work from home as a teacher with Ontario’s plan for education. Help us!

If there is no windows I think that it qualifies as an unsafe working environment with Covid. Look into that. That’s a breeding ground for Covid.

Classrooms are the very definition of the 3 C’s and come September Ontario has decided it’s okay to do that. Seems very counterproductive.

I think it doesn’t matter if we’re wearing masks or maintaining distance when we are in a room that is most likely not air conditioned and poorly ventilated for 6 plus hours together. No matter what, we’re all exposed at that point.

For all of the return to school scenarios, we will be referencing different cohorts. We are planning for four different cohorts. These cohorts have immerged based on student and family needs that we articulated through our student, staff and family survey.
