And schools are still not open … Wonder when MDUSD will open .. we have been able to open for a few days now and only today does the board send out a survey of what parents want. Full 100% Distance (Failed) Learning or 2 hours a day times 4 days a week. After all of this, only 2 hours a day … And no date provided on when they would start.

And we still have different numbers being used for schools and sports. How I wish we could all use one set of numbers …
