Private school attended by Barron Trump prohibited from in-person learning until October

As President Donald Trump continues to demand a return to in-person classes for schools around the country despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the school attended by his youngest son has received an order prohibiting on-campus learning for the start of the school year.

Montgomery County, Maryland, on Friday issued a directive demanding that private schools not conduct in-person learning until October 1. Barron Trump, who is slated to enter 9th grade in the fall, attends St. Andrew's Episcopal School, a private school in Potomac, Maryland, part of Montgomery County.

"Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have based our decisions on science and data," Montgomery County Health Officer Travis Gayles said in a statement. "At this point the data does not suggest that in-person instruction is safe for students or teachers. We have seen increases in transmission rates for COVID-19 in the State of Maryland, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Virginia, particularly in younger age groups, and this step is necessary to protect the health and safety of Montgomery County residents."

St. Andrew's school administrators have stated a desire to start the school year in early September, on-time and with in-person learning for the staff and students, according to a letter sent to parents last month and seen by CNN. However, the school noted a final decision was to be made the week of August 10.

3. You gonna put up with that, Sir (Donald likes it when people call him sir)?

You should executive order the schools to open! Show 'em what a big man you are. You're not going to just impotently knuckle under to some pointy-headed bureaucrat, are you?
