and the virus shall spread some more...this county is so disorganized when it comes to education. one year later since the PSPS events started and still this is the best they can do. i want a tax refund the school district and teachers are not educating our kids at 3 hrs a week of distant learning. mom and dad do most of the work after putting in 80+ hrs at jobs. i said this 6 months ago, you should all resign , if this is the best you can do for our kids, it's been an epic fail. no wonder other countries surpass us in education, our system is a joke
