Hillsborough County Schools called an emergency meeting Friday to decide if kids will be learning in the classroom next week.
There has been a lot of back and forth on this decision but things got stirred up even more after a judge ruled in favor of the Florida Education Association (FEA) and said local school districts can make reopening decisions for themselves, not from the state’s order. As a parent, it was already a tough decision to make to either send my kid to school or have virtual school, again. Then the county put the discussion back on the table. They came together to decide if school would resume in person, for those families who opted for that learning method, or if ALL Hillsborough County students will be virtual learning for another 3 weeks. The votes came in and kids will be returning to campus and learning in-person starting on Monday morning. It is so bizarre how this year turned out. I never would’ve thought in a million years we would be in this predicament.
