Sadly sounds like my district, and all of those in my county in PA too! At least PA districts are not being punished for mandating masks!!!!

BTW, are your Floriduh governor's children too young for school, or as I suspect, have vaccinated nannies watching them?

Mavericksmom, I am so sorry! That just seems so illogical. What is the vaccination rate in your county? Are they just gambling that the hospital system is robust enough to handle the influx from the unvaccinated and the unlucky vaccinated severe cases? I’m fairly certain that approach is in my future as well. Not sure what I will do...

In our area we are at about 75% of the eligible population fully vaccinated, so around 65% of the total. There are some worrying signs though and breakthrough infections are not actually rare and with the delta variant (or a worse one to follow) there will likely be more chaos to come. Our school divisions have stepped up and most have mandated masks for all. My independent school announced today a vaccination policy for all staff and masks for all. That is a bit of a relief and maybe I can do this. Another independent school came down on the other side and said although they recommend masks they will leave it up to the parents. (It would make me livid that some other parent would decide whether my (hypothetical) children were worthy of protection! As we know masks are better at protecting others than ourselves. This pandemic has really been an unpleasant eye-opener!)

That's insane that there's already a positive case. Wishing you strength and antibodies.

My school mandated masks and vaccines for all staff. (The province followed suit eventually.) I look longingly though at schools who mandated medical masks and vaccinations for eligible students!!

Pi-Xi,

That’s true but the odds are heavily in your favor if you’re vaccinated. My former school district reports that 95% of teachers are vaccinated but since they are a K-8 district the majority of its students can’t be vaccinated yet.

Exbrnxgrl, I'm in Iowa, with an idiot governor. We have 3 positive cases this week in the school, which just started 3 days ago! We got an email about enforcing the "no hoods" rule. Really? We have unvaccinated kids here, 350 of them and we're worried about them wearing their sweatshirt hood? Ironic much?

Oh what a mess! I am truly out of patience for those who will not only do nothing to protect our children but will go out of their way to prevent student masking requirements. Despite this, I believe my former district is being cautious and responsible and I am looking forward to subbing come December.

I don’t know anyone who retired because of the pandemic. Like me, most of the retirements we had at the end of last school year were planned before we even knew what Covid19 was. However, in an attempt to save money, my district offered a pretty sweet incentive package to those of us who met certain criteria. I think that might have convinced folks to retire more than Covid19.

I had to delete the previous post as I could not get the chart to copy/paste correctly.

I mentioned that my district has excellent protocols and procedures in place to mitigate the spread of Covid19. Most of the students are too young to be vaccinated as we are a K-8 district. They are publishing weekly updates on positive Covid19 tests by school site. For reference, school started on 8/11. Alta Vista was my school. Not sure why Carlton had such a high number. It is physically close to my former school and has a very similar demographic.

Please follow this link and click on District Dashboard to see chart.

I find I am getting very angry at my coworkers for not masking up, ok just in my own head, I have not/will not actually treat anybody any differently. It's only a suggestion by our district leaders, cases among children are rising. Anyone else feel this way? I feel I'm setting a good example and being a good role model, even if they are only kindergarteners. Overworked and underpaid as well, I WISH I had retired last school year. I will stick it out, but I am starting to hate it, and it's only the 2nd week of school. No mask mandates here, in Iowa. What are we supposed to do when kids start dying? I'm only a lowly para of 20 years, you wouldn't believe how low my pay is, I do it because I am good at it, and I used to love it. It's horrible, that this disease has been politicized. Also, obviously, I had cancer! No one cares about that though either.
