No Halfway Model

Thornhill | Ontario | Canada

Alexander Chan, Grade 11 Teacher

We have been informed that our schools are opening in a few short weeks, but it remains unclear if we’re going back full-time or in some yet undetermined partial model.

To me, both as a parent and teacher, the mixed model is the worst of both ideas. If my children are home part-time, I’ll need to arrange either childcare or stay home myself. It simply doesn’t make sense to me. It’s either safe to go back or not.
