I don’t see how it’s so important to wear it in class rooms where they can be seated at a distance but then in recess they are allowed to take masks off... where they’ll likely run around and touch each other.
Something else is going on here.
Not only recess but lunch which is indoors! Also no mention of gym class. For anyone not from the area, there was a heat index of over 100 degrees yesterday in NJ and as mentioned in the article not all schools have air conditioning. This is so going to be such a mess for any districts implementing this policy.
To add more context, parents who are concerned with sending their kids to school don't even have to do so. There will be an all-remote learning option available statewide: https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/07/nj-to-allow-all-remote-learning-option-for-students-when-schools-reopen-in-the-fall-murphy-says.html
How do school boards come up with these ridiculous ideas?
This is inhumane and idiotic.
I’m completely with you.
