It’s a long road to get back to school

Spokane Public Schools is jpdoing the math, and so far it doesn’t add up. If students are to return to school this fall, only about 20 will fit inside a typical classroom and still comply with social distancing requirements in the face of COVID-19.

State superintendent says even fall may be too soon to return to school

“Short of a vaccine, which people continue to tell us is 12-18 months away, we have to figure out if it’s safe to come back even in the fall,” state Superintendent Chris Reykdal said. “Will we see a spike in cases if we are all sort of released from our social-distancing framework?”

Children are back in school, so slow down and be safe

Spokane drivers will have at least 30,000 reasons to ease up on the gas pedal Thursday morning. That’s how many students will be walking, driving, busing and perhaps even skateboarding to dozens of buildings in the Spokane Public Schools District.
