Five In-Person Days for Grades 7-12 in Plainview-Old Bethpage
Over the past 13 months, research and science have shown us what activities can safely resume - with appropriate precautions - during the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, school has proven to be a place with very low risk of transmission. In the past few months, more than 20 Nassau County school districts, plus countless districts in Suffolk, have brought their secondary students back for 5 days of in-person instruction - with much success and few problems. It is time for Plainview-Old Bethpage to do the same (with remote options still available for families who have health concerns or are not comfortable), and put an end to the academic, social, and emotional damage that hybrid learning models have on so many of our children.
