Back to school photos of students without masks spark controversy

Source: CBS 46

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) -- Back to school photos that circulating on social media from several metro Atlanta counties are facing negative attention.

Health experts say school re-openings must include effective COVID-19 testing, contact tracing, face coverings and social distancing to maximize safety. But, some Georgia students who have returned to class are not following those measures.

A photo posted on Sequoyah High School's Instagram page shows dozens of students huddled together for a back to school picture. After on-line criticism, the photo was deleted from the account

A similar picture of students outside of Etowah High School in Woodstock shows teens bunched together on a school sidewalk with no face coverings in sight.

2. What school goes back in early August anyway?

That's crazy early compared to what I'm used to in NYC.

4. In Georgia, most schools usually start in the first week of August.

However, my Georgia school district is starting school online in September.

11. Many schools

I've lived in three states -- they all started (and still do) the first or second week of August, K-University. They all ended (and still do) in early to mid May.

5. That grand experiment lasted all of, a day, 2nd grader tests positive

Second-grade class quarantined after student tests positive for COVID-19

In its second day of the new school year, the Cherokee County School District shut down a second-grade classroom at Sixes Elementary School in Canton after a student tested positive for COVID-19

“In accordance with our COVID-19 Exposure and Response Plan, today we notified all Sixes Elementary School parents that a student who attended class there on Monday has tested positive for COVID-19. This is the first COVID-19 positive case reported among our students and staff since we reopened schools on Monday morning'

Tracing was conducted, and all affected students’ parents have been notified. “Due to this exposure, the affected second-grade classroom will be temporarily closed, and the teacher and 20 other students in the class must quarantine for two weeks. The teacher, who is symptom-free, will teach the class online from home through our Canvas learning management system. The classroom will be deep-cleaned after school today,” she said.

The current recommendation is that children who have been within close contact with a child who has been infected quarantine for 14 days. On Monday, Cherokee became one of the first Georgia districts to resume face-to-face classes.

10. I'd say most of these kids' parents sent them to school with masks,

And the kids ditched them.

Either way, here comes the next big wave of virus. And this one can be laid directly at the feet of the Orange Lard Ass, right in time for the election.
