    Arutunian interview post-Skate America 2020

    What she saw had nothing to do with drama. It was flat out nastiness. I doubt USFS knew the type of comments he was making. If they did, I doubt they would have ever invited him back.

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    Several Texas skaters are upset that they arrived early and now cannot practice. I hope that exemption also covers non-Massachusetts skaters. From the quote above, it sounds like it only covers MA skaters who are registered for the event.

    Arutunian interview post-Skate America 2020

    Rafal has a tough style. My daughter worked with him twice (2 different years) at the "Jump on it" camp and she came away with a very negative impression. My guess is lots of other young female skaters picked up on that same vibe. Maybe he shows a different personality one-on-one than in a...

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    Just read that there are now 4 states with similar rink closures - Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. Apparently one of the issues is that the hockey teams do not want to release their rosters to the contact tracers. What a mess! You gotta wonder if the shutdown will be...

    U.S. Ladies [#29]: Skating with Adjusted Vision

    The recent Phil Hersh article suggested no 3A or quad in the short term but hopes to have them in her programs by Nationals. Referenced growth (2 inches) combined with lack of ice during quarentine and changing coaches (2 are international so only virtual lessons).

    How to disinfect a new home and a hotel room

    I have spent the last 25 years registering pesticide products with the USEPA. For 15 of those years, I specialized in "antimicrobial" product. My clients have included about all of the major companies and many of the mom and pops that have EPA registered disinfectant products. EPA has published...

Though Skate America may look different this year with no fans attending in-person, we still want to see your faces...

    When and how should we open schools?

    Son's school has a similar policy to that Virginia school. One of the kids on my son's class was out sick three days last week and apparently the child had to show a negative test result before he could come back into the classroom.

    When and how should we open schools?

    My daughter has a pretty sweet set up in the TV room (smallest bedroom). We moved an existing desk in it and purchased a new adjustable office chair. She can move between desk/chair setup and a loveseat. The room gets alot of natural light throughout most of the day. I asked her about getting...

    When and how should we open schools?

    Daughter (sophomore in HS) is 100% virtual until mid October. She overall likes the schedule but . . . She acknowledges that she is not learning as much as pre-*********. She is also prone to migraines and recently the frequency and intensity has increased. We took her to the doctor and was...

    Major life changes since c*vid?

    I took a new job in April 2019 and that required a relocation. Within a year, my family (husband and 2 kids) had relocated and were in a *********. We also got a puppy after relocation but before *********. Due to the *********, we had two biggies: Took the kids to Florida for 2 1/2 months for a...

    When and how should we open schools?

    At least one private schools in my area has shut twice but my son's is staying open (knock on wood). That tells me that something about the protocols being used - one set is working and one set it not. I do know the "whys." What I do know is that the populations "draws" of both schools are...

    When and how should we open schools?

    Some public schools do that as well. Kids in school sports can get kicked off their sports teams for bad behavior outside of school.

    When and how should we open schools?

    At both kids' former elementary and middle schools, there are always LOTS of parent volunteers at the school. This year at my son's new school, no parents are allowed on campus. fyi. My son's new school includes K-12 while his old middle school was grades 6-8. Numbers-wise, the total student...
