School is in session at Pleasanton Unified

Original post made on Aug 22, 2021

Though perhaps more anticipated than previous years, it was a mostly normal scene when students came back last week for the first day of school at PUSD, where in-person learning is now in full swing for the 2021-22 school year.

Such a feel good article but lets get real here. How many classrooms have already been shut down due to Covid now? This might have worked if class sizes were where they were last year but starting the year with class sizes back to normal, unfortunately, I think we are seeing the negative result of Covid once again. Now PUSD is blaming the governor saying its the law. Way to take the high road PUSD. Oh ya by the way ..... how are those raises treating you PUSD Admin? Yes we are in trying times but unfortunately the district has proven once again it will allow financial politics to dictate its path. No worries the next election will speak volumes. Why didn't the district decide to start the year with cohorts, like last year, and then adjust accordingly? Sadly this is obviously not working the way we all hoped.

We are moving in the right direction. Fortunately as the data, science, and guidance had predicted the infection in children hasn’t been nearly as bad as adults (hospitalization and death), so while it’s extremely inconvenient to close down a classroom because of exposure risk the schools are at least moving forward towards education and preserving the classroom experience for those not directly exposed. I anticipate every classroom will experience at least one quarantine, and I think we are doing the right thing/right approach for now.

So how many classes are shut down as of this moment? Does anyone have the guts to answer that honestly or "lets not ask that"? Hats off to all the teachers as they continue to work without a contract. What a way to treat them PUSD! Is it that hard to plan ahead so our valuable teachers can work with less stress? Just because we love to say "Pleasanton children first" does not mean teachers are last. Let me throw this question out there............. growing up and in school how many school admin do you all remember? Now how many teachers do we all remember from our days in school? Point is teachers have a bigger impact on our lives than they get credit for.
