Health district recommends schools start online

As the local school districts are wrapping up their efforts to safely reopen in a few weeks, Summit County Public Health recommended Aug. 10 that they open online, instead.

What is the reasoning behind it and how will this affect Barberton and Norton schools? Look for the full story in the Aug. 13 issue of The Barberton Herald.

    Why would you keep your kids at home? Scared silly.

    Do not vote in November. Ask China what they think.

    The Board and Superintendent MUST act to close the school buildings and “business as usual” before both students and staff are infected with the China Virus. Not to do so in the face of the re-surge of the virus that we see in TV each day would render the Board and Super guilty of the sickness and maybe deaths of many persons. Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, etc. have already said on line learning at least until the first of the year. We must do the same. We must ignore the insane voice of Dummy Donald in Washington and make decisions based on science and concern for our youth and those who educate them.
