    Is your school district opening on-line, or has the decision yet to be made?

    Eleventh-grade SonPK starts back August 3, fully opened school with efforts for social distancing, mask requirements for staff in certain situations (and "encouragement" for students), cleaning, etc. They've laid out the "enhanced mitigation" protocols but have not declared them to be in effect as of today.

    I'm betting we don't make it to Labor Day before we are all back to remote learning here.

    And FWIW, the BOE gave parents the choice of having their children go completely on-line for the semester. About 15% chose this option.

    Mine is a single-campus independent school, not a district. Plans are taking shape as we speak, but like you, I don't think much of anyone in GA will be sticking to any plans for long if at all, given the state's current COVID trajectory. I'm trying to prepare for the idea of another extended period of virtual teaching, and it's really weighing on me at the moment.

    You will come up with a creative way to reach your students. I have total faith in you, Wilson.

    Thanks, and best of luck. I am curious to follow the plans in your area (and elsewhere around the State) as we move through the fall.

    Our system (Mont Co, MD - a rather large system w/ 170K students) hasn't pulled the trigger yet, but is leaning towards starting with 100% distance learning, then phasing in the in-school component.

    Thanks, DinK. For me, it's really not the question of how to teach effectively. Accepting that virtual teaching is limited and imperfect even in the most otherwise advantageous situation (which mine by and large is), for me it's more an emotional/mental health issue. I'm an Enneagram 7, strong extrovert, and I'm just not built for isolation.

    I'm really curious too, but admittedly not feeling especially optimistic today. I wonder if I'll be in my physical classroom at all this year.

    Final interview was about 1.25 hours. I think it went very well. I will know something within one week.

    Sigh. I miss sports.

    I think so. Plus they lose in OT in the current game. FSU had been down by 27.

    I watched a stage from the 2011 Tour de France today.

    That was my earlier background noise. I love the Alpe d'Huez stages. Since working from home is new, I hadn't realized they were replaying past stages each day since there isn't a Tour in July. Hopefully, they will be able to pull it off at the end of August.

    Given how well they test for PEDs, I am sure that the testing for COVID will be beyond reproach.

    The Laettner Shot - watching it never gets old.

    And the thing I love best about it? It goes in. Every. Single. Time!

    Back in the spring, when CBS re-aired NCAAT classics in lieu of an actual tournament, I watched the game and I was rather surprised to find myself legitimately nervous for the entire second half.

    It remains a very exciting game to watch.
