‘What's On Your Mind?:' How to Safely Reopen Schools

NBC Universal, Inc.

How to make schools safe for in-person learning is a question so many parents and educators still want answered. With just a few weeks to go before the first day of class, the re-opening of our schools is certainly What’s On Your Mind.

If and when students are back in the classroom, they will likely have questions about what is happening around them. Parents and teachers also have pressing questions, as worries about a future COVID-19 outbreak have not gone away.

Some parents have decided that their children will not be participating in in-person, in-classroom learning. Connecticut school districts are currently working to implement all recommended safety guidelines before the first day of school. There is still much to figure out before the start the new school year.

Here is some of what you wanted to share with us.

As far as the children going back to school… as long they make sure the little babies are safe, I’m all for it.

Joyce, West Haven

Kids should stay at home for schooling this year. Better to be safe than sorry. Kids are resilient. They will bounce back.

Paul, Terryville

Most of the inner-city schools, they can’t have kids six feet apart. Schools are overcrowded. We need to wait until we have a better solution to the problem

New Lockers at High School

She will not be returning. She will take part in their distance learning and she will do it from home.

Katrina, Manchester

The better way would have been to start off half the class one day and half the class the next day and give them homework on the off day.
