Return to School

 Here in Maryland there is a very staggered start to the annual return to the classroom.

Howard County, for example, has been in class since Monday yet neighboring Anne Arundel County does not return until Wednesday after Labor Day.

I have noticed a significant increase in traffic and I have had to adjust my morning departure to miss the school bus that pays my street at about the same time that I leave. I did not adjust on Monday and lost 8 minutes behind the bus. I am amazed at how slow the kids are.

I guess I would be slow as well. 

The return to the classroom is a big event every year and this year is no exception with the discussions about whether to mask, or not. 

We need to protect our kids and each other as much as possibly and so I still do not understand the opposition to wearing facial coverings--it is the right thing to do to protect others. 

Well, happy school days!
