Just a comment on Scott Hunter’s thoughts on starting in-person learning again: In my 70s and raising a now teenager who says I am an (old fashioned, crazy, crabby old lady), I often wonder if she is right. I have answered the questionnaires, polls and spoken to school administration a few times. I keep up with the Covid stats for WA, and so far I am for keeping distance learning for, who knows how much longer.

Thank you, Scott, for your like opinion. I just heard tonight (Nov. 15) that Gov. Inslee is on the brink of closing the state down again, due to a large increase in cases. That being said, I do worry about the lack of socialization for the kids.

We do mostly follow the distancing, masks etc., but for my teen I have compromised some: she is allowed to see and hang out with a brother, sister and a best friend. They walk to the store or skateboard, buy junk food and hang out at a park or the school. It adds a bit of risk, but a whole lot of normalcy to their lives!
