Second day back at school, and I can safely say that the rules are a mess. We're supposed to keep kids separated throughout the day, but as it stands, at 12:30, several classes will finish and the ones who aren't picked up will all go together to the common room where they'll mix together until 17:00. My colleagues are treating ventilation as a joke (my own classroom has the windows open), and parents are already demanding that the windows should be shut.

The kids themselves are struggling with the rules, and I'm giving it two weeks before I end up getting quarantined.

I have a 'window' now, and after taking a stroll around the school, none of the windows are open in the classrooms.

Good, even chaotic real education in person is 100 times better than the dreadful fraud that is 'remote learning'....

Horrible harm has been done to children across the world at crucial stages of their development thru the idiotic lockdown policies.

The virus is not a threat to small children and they are not a threat to others.

Treat it like the flue - exercise due caution and get on with life.

exercise due caution

If only we were. This is the frustrating thing: the windows could be kept open without any harm to anyone, but because of the Polish hysteria and fear of the open window, most of my colleagues are terrified of sitting there with air circulating around the room. My answer is simple: my classroom, my rules, and if you don't like it, put on your jackets and hats. I actually checked the temperature this afternoon after finishing, and it was 17c after the window had been open all day.

I'll give it until the end of the week before someone makes a formal complaint.

dreadful fraud that is 'remote learning'....

I don't disagree with you there. A friend recorded one "lesson" to show me, and it was diabolical. The teacher was hassling kids over cameras every minute, the quality of the connection was poor, and the way that the work was organised meant that kids were spending an absurd amount of time just trying to figure out what to do. Not cool.

Another friend had a situation where the teacher (of kl. 2 kids in primary school) was sending large e-mails once a week with precise instructions to be followed. She appeared to not understand that the average 8 year old isn't capable of reading her message...

Polish hysteria and fear of the open window

Oh god..... I remember weather that was absolutely sweltering... well over 30 degrees and if you try to open a window to get some air moving someone shrieks "Przeciąg!" and runs to close it...

someone shrieks "Przeciąg!"

One reason apartment building hallways smell of cabbage; people here are terrified of open windows. Schools need good ventilation and fresh air though. People may (and do) deliberately block ventilation at home (sometimes with fatal consequences in Poland) however schools need kids with oxygen getting to their brains rather than drowsy kids in overheated airless classrooms.

so you claim that pre-teens can't transmit the virus? - interesting

pre-teens

pre-teens =/= small children.... no study has found small children to catch and/or transmit the virus....
