    The Trumpites/goddites will martyr their children to the messiah.
    The intelligent parents will use online education.

    The idiotic response from science illiterates and vaccine denialists- is astounding. I can no longer understand this smoldering insanity. WE ARE THE EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENTS. 🦖☄

    I'm glad my grand children live in a state where masks are mandated in schools and has a Governor (Republican) who isn't afraid to go back to virtual learning. It should be noted that most private schools have mask mandates, you know the schools where politicians send their children.

    We should have vaccine and mask mandates right now

    Mask or no mask … vaccination or not…if I had a kid … They wouldn't be in school.. I remember how the"fall " head colds would spread .. this will be 10 x quickly spread.

  6. August 16, 2021

    about 400 kids have died since the start of covid.. that is such a tiny number when compared to car accidents, house fires, literally anything else. Stop using children to push the fear.

    Kids will get bullied no matter what , there is nothing new under the sun . I don’t Judge others for wearing masks and getting vaccines and I would hope they’re not judging me . And heck yeah they’re making it political and by they I mean the government.

    It's going to take one parent to go off and these govs will figure it out. In the meantime, I'll be getting ready for the mass shut down again.

  10. August 16, 2021

    Thas why I'm not sending my son to school just for him to be put back on virtual is just a matter of time until they go back to virtual they should have just doin it from the beginning and not see how many kids get sick to go back to virtual

    The GQP wants students to become infected so that they can blame Biden for kids not being in school.

    In 1944 they injected plutonium into people to see the side effects in the name of science. In 2021 they are practically doing the same thing but with a bio weapon that is a potential long time killer.

    Exactly a point I made to the school board. Bullying. This is why it should be a blanket rule for all.

    I hope that there's an option for online school and In person school. Some people do better in person, and some like online better

    PARENTS: PREVENT DISEASE! MASK UP, VACCINATE KIDS! Better safe than sorry! 💓💕🙏👍

    I think Schools need to admit they can not protect kids now

    whyso curious

    The kids will be so happy/better off, but the parents will be so sad because they might hafta actually spend time together 🙁

  20. August 16, 2021

    Maybe, also, have the kids write in a small notebook the names of the kids who are doing the bullying. Then the parents can open the conversations with the appropriate adults.

  21. Being in college, I really don't want to return to online learning.

    I really struggle with online

    That being said, since I'm in a state being run by deathsantis and anti-vax morons

    I'm fully expecting it to be switched back to online classes

    the Reps did a bad job. More than 600 000 death of covid. Why has no country in the world that much victims? USA has more than India. Of course, every state made some mistakes by fighting the virus. But that much ?

    Teachers should praise the strength of the students that are protecting each other by wearing masks.

    If schools are closed, Abbott and DeSantis are over.

    In Broward County Public Schools, masks ARE REQUIRED so that won’t even be a question. We can’t social distance in the classroom anymore so it’s imperative that all students and staff wear masks whether they’re vaccinated or not. My biggest class has 44 students in it, so you’d better believe I am enforcing the mask mandate. My classroom, my rules. If you don’t like it, either homeschool or send your kids to private school.

    Definitely a matter of flagrantly irresponsible people. Mask bullies will face consequences, I think expulsion! Freedom ends when you're endangering other's lives!

    I don't know what Dr. Patel's area of expertise is, but it's clearly not counseling.

    Masks 😷 don’t work dude 😂

    Who didn’t know this would happen with idiotic, inconsistent leadership, and massive disinformation on social media?
    Do not believe everything you hear or read these days.
    People are making very poor decisions.
    Wear a mask!

    They haven’t got any effective TREATMENT??? All they talk about is mask n vaccinations

    No…we ARE NOT.

    If only there was something these idiots could take to prevent them and anyone else from spreading and dying from this virus. American kids are smarter than their parents.

    Well said Drs.
