It's been a whirlwind past week or two for the Williamsville School District.

Ten positive cases of COVID-19 were reported in schools across the GTA on Monday, as some students headed back for their first day of in-person classes.

Palmer High School will be closed on Tuesday due to a COVID-19 case in the school, according to Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District spokeswoman Jillian Morrissey. "But at the high school, you're teaching calculus or physics or French 4".

"We still can't do group meetings and group activities", he said. The board will bring it back up for further discussion at a future meeting.

On top of that, three Greater Saskatoon Catholic schools - École St. Peter, Holy Cross High School and St. Joseph High School - have notified parents of a single case at each school.

St. Charles North and St. Charles East high schools have begun the school year with remote learning.

Skip Bayless: No sympathy for Dak Prescott's depression
Prescott said in the TV interview he thought he might be experiencing depression just a few days before his older brother's death. Bayless, who is no stranger to the label "hot take artist" was roundly condemned by his colleagues in the sports media.

Before making the final decision to start virtually, Carl had said that the district's small size and declining enrollment gives it an advantage when it came to a face-to-face reopening, because unlike other districts Hancock's schools have enough space to separate students through social distancing.

The district set up a weekly reporting system today, which they say will continue once students can return to the classroom. "We'll do that with a task force, or a team of people, that includes our school board and other health officials in the community and our administrative team", said Moore.

Starting September 21st, children in Mishawaka will start coming back to school in person in elementary schools.

Parents have until September 30 to make a decision: Send their children back to campus or commit to virtual learning for the rest of the semester, Herrin said. In the meantime, all classes will be online.

Since July 1, 10 staff members and 66 students have tested not positive but have quarantined.

Lansingburgh Central School District's superintendent, Antonio Abitabile, told CBS 6 that $6.5 million is about 12% of the district's total budget, which "made it to the point where it was impossible to staff our buildings fully and safely" during the coronavirus pandemic.
