I have read some posts that say that the 2020-21 school year should be postponed past the regular start of August or September. According to what Scientists are saying and some highly scientific people I have talked to such as doctors, that might be a big mistake. According to a retired doctor friend of mine and many Scientists, this is what next school year will look like in the United States. It is predicted that things this summer could be mostly safe in most states. Of course, human behavior between now and then might effect that. So going to restaurants, movies, and other places like this in some way or form? Yes, it should happen. School ready in August?...again yes it should happen. Now for the rest of the news. Scientists and my Doctor friend are saying that the virus will be back when the weather cools down...maybe late October. If so, I am guessing that schools might not want to wait until the last minute again, so school might be out after Columbus Day in October until...late Spring? In other words, principals are you ready to prepare to start school on time and then go for 1 quarter? Or for those who start after Labor Day only 6 weeks? Then we do this at home learning possibly until April? 1st quarter: school 2nd and 3rd quarter: at home: 4th quarter: ???--maybe 1/2 at home and 1/2 at school? Delay the school year and there won't be a school year at school. We must see if this is as likely as some are saying. If it is, then it would be smart to start preparing this summer for a very different school year...most of it possibly at home. I'm not saving my best lessons for 3rd or 4th quarter next year if this situation is as likely as some say it is.
