    When and how should we open schools?

    That is one of my daughter's biggest concerns about going virtual - How will the teacher know who she is?! We have not yet heard how our school system plans to address this. Public schools here are going virtual until at least October 5.

    When and how should we open schools?

    Maybe its the kids have not found what they like to read. As a kid, I hated to read and being read to. When I was in 8th grade, I was still "reading" picture books. My sophomore year of high school I opted to take Honors English and the summer reading list was horrible: Old Man and the Sea...

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    The dilemma for opting for Massachusetts if you are coming from a non-low risk state (i.e., the majority of states). Fines are $500 per day. Do you think you can get three test results back on time - skater, chaperone, and coach? Chaperone is the least important but what happens if you don't...

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    From what I have heard, going to a doctor's office gets faster results BUT you need a valid reason for the test. With the County, you do not need a doctor's prescription to get the test BUT you get the 6-7 turn around time. The above are for those 18 and over. Under 18, you have to go through...

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    The problem here is how to get the results in time. Some places are taking 6-7 days to get the results. Do you take the test, then hop on a plane and hope you get the results in time for you child to skate. Our pediatrician can get the results in <24 hr but you need a valid reason. Not sure if...

    USFS Qualifying Season Plans

    This is the real issue. Our rink requires (Pennsylvania only recommends but some State requires) that one quarantines for 14 days after returning from a hot sport. Right now both Texas and Georgia are on that list. There is a very good chance that in three months, that list is going to change...

    When and how should we open schools?

    Try a 11 year old boy with 10 different teachers (core classes and all those specials). According to my son's teachers, academically he as a strong student but he still he floundered. Let's be honest - Tween boys are not known for their great organizations skills. I cannot imagine what would...
