Letter: Be smart when re-opening schools

To the Editor:

While I totally understand the frustration that parents, children, and educators are experiencing regarding the remote learning situation, the parents who participated in the recent protest at Prairie Ridge High School really cause me to wonder. In my opinion, standing shoulder to shoulder without masks to demand reopening the schools is foolhardy and uneducated.

I truly hope that the schools do not give in to the demands of some people unless that decision is based in fact and knowledge and made by the people who truly understand the situation ... that is the educators themselves (many of whom are parents!). The health of the children must come first.
