Our 11-year old Kyla…
Today on her first day in the 6th grade. Kyla’s fortunate that (for now) she has in-person classes.
The read today is from the Editorial Board of the Colorado Springs Gazette. Here’s an excerpt, followed by a link to the entire editorial.
It is safe to conclude getting children to and from school poses a greater threat to their lives than COVID-19.
With rare exceptions, schools should not be closed. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association reports United States children comprise 0%-0.3% of all COVID-19 deaths, and 21 states reported zero child deaths. It means COVID-19 is among the lowest threats to children. The academy “strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.”
