Everything about the upcoming school year feels wrong.
We’re approaching the final stretch of summer, but plans haven’t been finalized.
Not for our families, not for our schools.
Most of us haven’t an inkling as to how we should proceed.
Nothing feels right.
Keeping schools closed feels wrong, but opening them feels equally wrong.
Sending kids to school during a pandemic feels wrong, but so does keeping them home.
The idea of our kids wearing masks feels wrong, while the thought of them NOT wearing masks feels wrong.
Social distancing within the walls and halls of school feels wrong, but so does allowing them to socialize normally.
Risking the physical health of teachers and students feels wrong, but so does risking jobs, educational needs, and emotional well-being.
Some of us have strong opinions about the decisions that need to be made, but many of us just feel paralyzed.
You’re not wrong if you decide to send your kids to school this year.
You’re not wrong if you decide to homeschool your kids this year.
