Doing all the things
I didn't get very far because the introductory stuff seemed very biased to me. I figured I could count on you guys to dig deeper.
And another 5 grades are closed now too.5 grade levels have been shut down this week at one of the schools in my region. (It is one of the ones where I wouldn't be comfortable sending a child).
Excellent. I think if they do this, they will be way ahead of the curve in giving the ***** the great heave ho!CA is requiring kids to be vaccinated against CV once vaccines for their age group are given full approval.
There was a lot of talk about this among my friends here in Texas. The main thing we wondered was how would you prove it? Unless no one in the family was going anywhere else but school how could they prove that they got it from the kid at school?It will be interesting to see if other parents start doing this.
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — A parent has sued a southeastern Wisconsin school district after her son contracted *********-19 from a classmate.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Shannon Jensen filed the lawsuit in federal court against the Waukesha School District and school board on Oct. 5. Jensen is seeking an injunction ordering the district to comply with U.S. Centers for Disease Control *********-19 guidelines.
According to the lawsuit, the board in May removed a student mask requirement and other *********-19 mitigation measures. One of Jensen’s son’s classmates came to school with symptoms in September and didn’t wear a mask. Jensen’s son was seated next to the sick student and was wearing a mask but still became infected. Jensen’s other two sons later tested positive as well.
This would be true in a place that actually had contact tracing. Texas doesn’t really. Both my kids and myself got *********, all 3 were lab confirmed PCRs. I only got emails/phone calls for 2 cases and when they called about my son, it was after he was already out of quarantine and back at school. They also didn’t ask us everywhere we had been. Also, ********* cases are self reported in our school district. If you don’t fill out the form, the school would never know. Though it’s getting better now, at the beginning of the year my sons school said they had 24 cases, however my son said in his classes almost half the kids were missing. This is a school of 1000 kids, the numbers aren’t adding up. However, I do agree, contact tracing, when done correctly, would pin point it. Maybe Wisconsin is doing better than Texas which admittedly isn’t hard to do!Contact tracing is able to pinpoint where people get it. If the kid who got it came into contact with no one who had it except at school, then that seems pretty clear.
I don't know how the family could prove it exactly but if the two boys were sitting next to each other for an extended period of time and if the boy wasn't spending that much time in such close proximity with anyone else, it might seem like a reasonable assumption.There was a lot of talk about this among my friends here in Texas.

Both my kids wore masks to school and my son made it 6 days before catching *********. We are pretty sure that school is where he caught it but there’s no way we could prove it because very few places in Texas require everyone to be masked.
I've read this comment a lot, and I guess I'm wondering if that even matters. Schools don't like to fight lawsuits. School administrators don't even like to deal with an upset parent in the office or on the phone. All kinds of safety rules in schools are enacted to avoid exactly this. I mean, I don't know how you prove that lice leaped from this child's head to another child's head on a classroom couch instead of when the two kids were sitting side by side at their desks with their heads together, but people exile couches, soft chairs, and pillows from classrooms just because parents complain.There was a lot of talk about this among my friends here in Texas.
