39. It will depend on what the school is doing to protect the children and staff.

There is a neighboring county that is planning on having 1/3 of the students in classes for 1 week and 2/3 of the students online changing every week. This is to have 10 students in a classroom. I would prefer to having classes with 1/3 of the students online with a teacher and 2/3 online without a teacher again switching each week. But what do we do with the children whose only parent has to work?
