    Teach outside in greenhouses. The virus dies in sunlight. UV lights for the inside class rooms with hepe filters like the hospitals have. No need masks. The kids need facial recognition and emotional contact for growth in society. The future are the kids. They will get natural immunity to all illnesses in school. Uncle sam has a space force but can't buy safety tech for schools? I am no expert, just a brainwashed civilian.

    Just cases. Spreading fear not facts as usual. Don't see anybody dying or any kids dying. Reality is we don't know what they put in the vaccine. We know the the truth, if it was that bad, you'd see people in public dropping like flies, but they're not. Biggest scam in history

    Government peddles fear, employees now fearful. Shocking!

    I wanted online for my kid but the set up is so bad she would be doing independent learning with no connection to the school. She would rather risk than just be alone. The progtam ladt year at least let the kids be together.

    Pennsylvania has had many, many accredited online cyber schools for decades. Has any attempt been made to approach other states and take advantage of their excess cyber schools resources for Hawaii's at risk students? At least until Hawaii has a more robust cyber school alternative in the face of this pandemic?

    With cyber schools the teacher doesn't have to be in the same state only available online.
