    School Districts all across Utah had different plans for how to return to school. For some it was all in person, others there was a hybrid. For Salt Lake City School District it was all online. Some provided more...

    • I found your post interesting. I don’t know why Utah’s Alpine district even let students come in person since as you said, they have the largest group of students. I hope that that all schools go online and students who need help can get it. Why do you think some Utah schools decided to open some schools for in person? Maybe they didn’t have the resources to have online school?

    • Hi Elizabeth,
      I agree with the topics you are questioning. In California, in my town, many of the smaller grades are going back to school. I often wonder if this will increase the coronavirus cases. They will be indoors most of the time surrounded by each other. And just like your post said, the coronavirus is affecting younger ages. They too could have contracted it at home and spread it at school.

    • This is interesting. You brought up some good questions about why the rates of the cases are going up. The amount of cases has only increased, and now we’re getting an alarming amount. Do you think schools should go all online. This website was nice.

    How is Corona affecting schools in Utah?

    How is Corona affecting schools in Utah? This question I have been wondering but never really looked into it. I know the plan Judge came out with was way different than the school next to my house. I wondered...

    • Dear Elizabeth,

      I am shocked by your post, “How is Corona affecting schools in Utah?” because school districts have their own plans on whether they should continue with online learning or not. I thought that the government had to choose on what is best for students but I learned that’s not the case.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “Salt Lake City School District is the only one in the state to be going all online, according to the article from the Salt Lake City Tribune.” I think this is devastating to me because I was looking forward to attending East High for my senior year and get to live that high school experience everyone wishes for. Unfortunately, they decided to continue online classes throughout the school year.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you did your research and stated factual information.

    • After reading this, I am left with one primary idea. Why is the government not involved? Why is there not a standard plan for every school in America? The current method that Judge Memorial uses is effective, but schools down the street are using plans that may or may not be effective. Cases are rising in schools, such as Corner Canyon, that have a large student body. The government should step in and find a plan that is effective for all schools. Schools all over America should be going full time online to prevent the spread. When will the government take the initiative to prevent spread?

    • Dear Elizabeth,

      Despite knowing that there were some of the variations in school responses throughout the state, I was surprised by the fact that plans changed not only in the district but depending on the student as well. I think having a varaition that would work for a number of kids is important. It was surprising to learn that only one district has gone fully online. I wonder though if the quality of education received by students online while their school is all in person decreases. Because I know it’s a lot harder to follow in class when you’re on zoom and there are people physically in the class room.

      Do you think some school will start switching up the plans when flu and cold season starts?

      I enjoyed how straight forward and specific your writing was and how it effectly and efficiently coomunicated the information about school’s plans.
