Our district has been doing hybrid for over a month without any issues and plans to go to full time in person learning for elementary within the next month.
Oh no! That's horrendous.I don't think people's fear comes from their own lack of understanding of how the virus is transmitted. It comes from a lack of trust that other people, and especially institutions such as schools, will take the proper precautions. Our school district, for example, has repeatedly demonstrated that it is unwilling to take the most basic of common-sense precautions. Yesterday the local news reported that there were confirmed student cases, but only the two kids who sat closest to each positive kid on the bus were quarantined. No classmates or teachers were quarantined, nor were the rest of the kids on the bus. This leads parents to assume that if a kid who doesn't ride the bus (and most don't) tests positive, that case won't even be reported. No wonder people are fearful.
Well as a little update, we managed 2 weeks back at school before the whole year group has to quarantine for 2 weeks due to a cluster of cases. Fortunately she seems fine nad healthy but is not happy at 2 weeks off gym jus when all her pre-lockdown skills seemed to be coming back.
