Exclamation Tenn. High School Football to begin Aug. 21 - can colleges be far behind?
The governor will allow high school football and girls soccer to take place in Tennessee. The first football games can occur 8/21/20. This has to give us some hope for college football. The TSSAA has strict rules for this to happen. Let's see how this progresses.

Typical sh*tshow leadership from Nashville.

The health departments in the larger counties that have them will determine the start date.

I still don't get the rush to put the cart before the horse. Professional sports are trying to figure out how to still make money in the face of a national pandemic, but high school sports trying to push forward in counties where schools are only meeting virtually seems bullheaded at best, and more realistically complete bull**** at worst. I really hope the Tigers play football this season (and I have multiple season tickets if they do) but I don't understand a football season if the don't allow students in classrooms.

Saw a news report about the various local school systems and the response to virtual education. The TV anchor was touting the "thousands have signed up for virtual school". Then they interviewed principals and superintendents, and the real story was a bit different:
Germantown 21% have signed up for virtual.
Millington 35%.
Desoto Co around 20%.
Bartlett around 40%.
Arlington around 20%.
Lakeland around 20%.
Collierville around 20%.
For those keeping score at home, that means 60-80% chose in-person schooling. (What % do you think would choose virtual even in non-pandemic times?)

Then they reported SCS claimed 80% chose virtual. Heck, just 2 weeks ago they had to extend the deadline for virtual because people were having trouble getting on-line to register (which might be a sign you shouldn't choose the virtual option).

One of these things is not like the others.

Talk about poor leadership - look close to home.

kids need to be in school

I think it has passed for just about all districts.

Deadline is midnight today for Germantown. 21% might not sound like a mandate, but one month ago it was 4% in Germantown, so they focused all their planning on in school to make that the best they could and got blindsided (football tie-in) about 2 weeks ago

If a Major League Baseball team in isolation can’t avoid COVID, then how in the world are a bunch of high school kids playing a contact sport going to escape it? If high school football starts on time, it will be a disaster.

As much as I hate to say it, I doubt we see Tiger football this fall.

From what I hear, some schools who’ve been practicing throughout the summer, have already had Covid breakouts. I suppose since those schools are private, they will not be pressed to admit as much.

I think high schools may be able to "manage" it better than MLB.

Because HS's probably wont be aware of most of the cases. Try getting a HS kid to admit he has a small cough if it is going to cost him a good part of the season.

It will have a much worse affect on the community.

21% is certainly NOT a mandate. It's a tough position. But to base it on that minor group is a bit puzzling. I'm guessing the 4% would have chosen virtual learning even without a pandemic. So there's that to consider as well.

Again, you have to think about the whole health of children. COVID is certainly a factor. But structure, education, nutrition, psychology, environment are all pretty important too.

Dr. Jason Yuan, Division Chief of Outpatient Pediatrics at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, says Le Bonheur treated three times as many children with adverse childhood experiences in May 2020 versus May 2019, a possible result of more time spent at home in unsafe conditions.

“We’re talking about things like abuse, neglect and household distinction,” said Yuan. “Living with someone who may be experiencing mental health issues, who may have substance abuse problems.”

While both recommend in classroom learning, Yuan and Piercey agree there’s not a one size fits all for reopening schools and parents deserve to choose what’s best for their child.

“I think the most important thing is that parents are able to do what they feel is the best thing for their child,” said Piercey.

“There’s going to be risk either way, and it’s weighing the risk and benefits at each step,” said Yuan.

Shelby County got declared virtual till further notice-about 4 days ago
Last week, teachers were told they can pick whether they teach in-person or virtually. SCS has now changed and made all classes virtual.

https://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2020/07/2...is-august/


SHELBY CO., Tenn. (WMC) - Superintendent Dr. Joris M. Ray with Shelby County Schools announced all schools will open virtually on August 31. SCS will remain virtual until further notice.

Ray said more than 80 percent of families who selected a fall learning option requested virtual learning.


SCS leaders said each student will get a digital device. Devices will be distributed the week of August 3 and continue throughout the month of September.

Designated pickup dates and locations for the digital devices will be based on school and grade level.

Each school site will prepare meals for students. Multi-day meal packs will be available for families. Schools will provide families with additional details.

SCS is also identifying local childcare providers, like the YMCA, who offer reduced or no-cost childcare options for essential working families.
