COVID 19, Going Back to School in Norfolk, VA

Diet & Health Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

While many primary school districts, and secondary schools for that matter, struggle with mixed, hard and fast rules and funding about going back to school, many schools were left scrambling to create systems, training and provide equipment for students on short notice in the wake of a pandemic that still lacks a national plan other than what many medical professionals call an unrealistic time frame for having a vaccine: January 2021. Many medical professionals feel that March 2021 is a more realistic deadline. Amidst all this our elected officials in Norfolk, VA have decided to start 100% online for Norfolk, VA primary schools. Many secondary schools will also be online (in Norfolk, VA). Many schools are hoping to switch back to in person at some point but many of these deadlines remain up in the air as we wade through the pandemic. Our elected officials were prompt in addressing the digital divide that exists by providing chrome books for those families in need, ensuring that students are equipped to go back to school. It was very important to Congressman Bobby Scott that students have chrome books and were equipped to learn this school season during the pandemic.

Don’t get caught off guard. Going Back to School During COVID-19: A SIMPLE GUIDE:

In fact, many teachers instructing primary school students have begun to venture out seeking their own computers. Teachers often are left to supply themselves, their classes and sometimes their students with supplies on their modest salaries. The elected officials in Norfolk, VA had approved teacher raises. In the face of the pandemic they have been put back in a position to fight for this raise for teachers as many states have been left to address the pandemic, in a sense, on their own, although many of our fine states have sought to pull and work together. Make sure your voice is heard this November at the ballot box and contact your local office of election with any questions or concerns. Plan ahead and Vote early!

Click here CBNC and College Students going back to school

Colleges across the country are struggling to open and keep students and staff safe from COVID 19 outbreaks. Some schools site the inability to manage how students socialize. The NBA bubble is a shinning example of how an organization has managed to open and function fairly successfully. The question is: are you sending you kids back to school whether they are going to elementary school or college this question is still one that requires some though if you are not sending them back online. Indeed, our society has moved online in larger numbers than before. And who can blame us. Is this the new normal? What will things look like in January or March 2021 when vaccines for corona start to be available hopefully moving us from a pandemic back to normal or a new normal?
