Back to School?

Last week, the Livingston Board of Education revealed its hybrid plan to return to school on a limited basis this fall amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Students who do not opt for the full remote learning option would spend roughly half their time at school and attend the other half of classes at home through remote learning.

This is a plan designed to appease everyone, but in practice, it leaves many involved disappointed at best, and worried for their safety at worst. Students and teachers will still risk exposure. Parents will still need to find child care for their children. The logistical and financial issues are boundless.
