Yesterday, we asked you: Did your CPS student go back to school today for the first time since the pandemic started? How did it go? Here’s what some of you said…
“My daughter went and she LOVED being back in person! She was so excited to be back in the building with her teachers and friends! She is in fourth grade at Edison Park Elementary. Everything was safe, clean, and they followed strict distancing protocols.” — Susie Walsh
“No. I opted for continued remote learning. Not willing to jeopardize or risk my son’s health just to be in a building.” — Rosie McCallister
“My 2nd grader went back today after almost a year. It went great! He was so happy, everyone was! You could feel the good vibes in general. Principal, teachers, staff, they all did such an amazing job. They are taking it seriously and so are the kids. Everything seemed to be organized and carefully planned.” — Andrea Flores
“It went well! The school was so organized, with excellent PPE in place, good preventative controls. Positive engagement and culture! Most importantly, the students were glad to be back.” — Mel Smith
“Nope, my kid will not go back and take that risk. Teachers may have gotten the vaccine but not the kids that are in class and they can still get sick.” — Ray Corleone
