The school year is all but over, can someone please explain to me why we are trying to re-open them before the end of the summer, when hopefully it will be safer to do so?

Heretofore isn’t sacrificial workers a more accurate label for essential workers ?

Although kids aren’t at the highest risk for coronavirus, they likely could transmit it to others – and aside from the school workers, kids also have adult parents and grandparents!
