I can understand the concept, but I have to be at work over 4 hours before the bus even picks up (4:54am) due to the "staggered work schedule for covid". What the heck am I supposed to do check her while sleeping or have her hopefully do it correctly herself and call me each morning? She's 11 so was a kinda stressful thought catching the bus without us home this coming year in the first place. Throw in the extra and I'm thinking the Elearning "request form" may be the way to go (which you have to give the reasons for requesting and they have to evaluate and accept as a valid reason) There will be lots of elearning occurring this year. A district can not force you to send your child to school during a pandemic. It is not truancy. I feel for the teachers that will be left to plan two lessons plans a day (for those in attendance, and those at home). In addition, Ohio cutting back on school payments means loss of more staff for districts. One large Ohio district will lose roughly 700 staff due to less money from Ohio. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
