Schools could be super spreader areas

Silverleaf Primary says that it is ready to accept pupils for the start of the new year.

Many people are terrified about going back to school and work.

And it’s more than understandable that some parents don’t want to send their bundles of joy to school.

So many teachers have already died from Covid-19. Having teachers mixed with 30 plus pupils in a single class is bound to be trouble.

When we think of super spreader events, we think of social gatherings like parties and funerals, but schools also pose a danger.

The National Teachers Union says schools could become super spreader areas.

Most working parents will have to go back to work, send their children to school and hope for the best.

There are those who are fortunate enough to work from home, so you can keep an eye on your child while attending impromptu Zoom meetings.

But then you also run the risk of your child being behind if in fact schools do go ahead and open on January 27.

Parents have a big headache now of deciding what to do.
