The surge of new COVID-19 cases continues with the emergence of the omicron variant. More and more cases are being reported and many school districts across the United States have questioned if going back to virtual learning is the answer to slowing down cases in schools. Virtual classes is a controversial topic between students. Some are in favor of slowing COVID transmissions and some are not in favor due to the struggles it creates for some students.
There has been over 4,500 temporary school closings across the country due to COVID which has distressed many parents especially those with students that have ADHD and struggle with online learning. Two neighboring school districts have recently adjusted Act-80 days or moved to remote an emergency inclement weather learning day due to staffing shortages and escalation of COVID cases.
