What the 2020-21 School Year Really Looks Like (from the eyes of an educator)

Visitors are no longer allowed in schools. Staff and students enter the building by the door closest to their classroom to avoid being in the hallways or “public” spaces any more than necessary. (Before they even arrive, the school buses have assigned seats by families, spaced out as far as possible, or they are dropped off at school in personal vehicles. We’re too rural for most of our families to walk.) When you walk into the school building (through the door closest to where you are going), you must sign in and take your temperature & attest that you have no Covid symptoms.
