    Another staff meeting this afternoon after school...basically given the 'be prepared to be doing online school from home' starting now. Without anyone specifically saying it, it certainly felt like there is a good possibility that we might be closing the building Monday....All CHSAA sports activities, practices, games etc are canceled. With Douglas Co, JeffCo and DPS all having spring breaks over the next 3 weeks - it seems there is a lot of sense to just shutting everything down for those weeks and reassessing during that time. Kind of makes sense to me...but its going to be interesting moving to remote schooling.

    The school district my kids my kids attended in Texas before moving here is on spring break. They announced today they are extending spring break by a week and then will evaluate. I expect the same here come Monday. I think it's all about limiting the surge now.

    "I don't recall SARS and Bird Flu causing the cancellation of major sporting events domestic and worldwide. The global response to this is far greater than any epidemic I can recall in my lifetime -- haunta virus, bird flu, swine flu, SARS, etc. It is difficult to know what response is appropriate until we have the benefit of hindsight."

    Keeping it in perspective, SARS "only" killed about 800 people, Coronavirus is just over 4700 so far. Hantavirus is mouse/rodent scat related with the bulk, @96% of the cases, being west of the Mississippi. This has never been a big one, but people are still warned about it especially those in rural areas and those living around large open spaces. Several people still die each year including a Park county sheriff deputy a couple years ago who, they believe, got it while cleaning out his barn and not wearing a mask, etc.

    While I am not sure it is worthy of all the mayhem it is causing, it is something to not take too lightly just the same. As was stated, just take proper precautions.

    The Diocese of Denver changed some Mass protocol
    1) No holy water available at the entrance doors
    2) No hand shaking / sign-of-peace
    3) No Blood of Christ available at communion

    Thanks folks. I pulled the post - it was more of a vent than anything productive. I give Mom the title of World's Best Mom. Family's well (LOL - so far, maybe we'll all get sick [and die??]).


    Back to the thread. I found this vid "reasonable" in action:

    (I don't _think_ this vid is a repost). This and Paul's "Safeway" (LOL) vid are two I find decent (of the many out there).

    Controversial idea. Instead of quarantining people to prevent spread, we could quarantine people to help spread it in a controlled fashion to people strong enough to survive it until we had herd immunity. This could also help turn around the falling stock prices of cruise ships. Free two week cruises to anyone passing a physical exam, get them all on the ship, two weeks later, they come back having had a hell of a case of sea sickness and now immune. Am I sciencing it right?

    I am in support of the school closures - especially with spring break. I think we need some time to assess and reassess how things are developing. There is no 'stopping' the spread, but if it can be slowed and delayed and managed into less people, it will hopefully stay below the dashed line on Trent's chart...But I also recognize this will have a large affect on the families of students that may not be able to work etc....Probably no good (or maybe no painless) solutions....

    Closing schools helps minimize spread, but has to be balanced against the impact on health care and public safety workers who rely on the childcare aspect of public school to allow them to work. No good answers here right now. I don't want to see things escalate here like Northern Italy, where there are unfortunately health care workers having to triage and decide who gets care.

    Edit: Adams12 just announced the same thing. Starting Monday, the kids will be on spring break (a week early). Apparently they are having school tomorrow, probably to give parents some time to figure this out.

    so are we...I don't think we have any presumptive infections in students in district currently (odds say we do, we just don't know it), but having a 'planned' closure with a few days notice (but only one contact day with students) is beneficial to both families and teachers....I just spent quite a bit of time trying to get online google classroom set-up for each of my classes. We'll spend some time each period tomorrow making sure students can get logged in and make a class roster in the online classroom....I already use Google sites, docs, and calendar for most of my materials so none of that changes - but I do need a forum where we can have ongoing discussion and question posted etc....If we had had an incidence of the virus in building with immediate closure, I think it would have been much more disruptive....

    All in all, we have to deal with the disruption to daily life, stay calm and just kind of wait it out.... maybe people can find a bit of humanity and community through this as we are all in it together.

    The worrisome part about the herd immunity topic with this virus is there still is no definite ruling on how long the antibodies in most people are surviving. There have been cases of re-infection. They are still studying this. It is going to be a bumpy ride for sure and even though as individuals we may feel we're healthy and at low risk we can still kill others with careless actions.

    The aisles with soup and expectorant were fully stocked at the supermarket yesterday, tons of produce, but the toilet paper aisle has been picked clean. We're all set on food and TP, just getting some accoutrements so it didn't matter, but I don't get it. I can take a shower and eliminate my need for TP, but I can't wash away hunger. I don't get it.

    The neighbor is in line at Costco (in Superior?). They sent a photo of the line to get into the store wrapping around the building. Folks are in panic mode.
