I know that everyone is doing the best that they can to keep the classrooms sanitized and clean. However, cleaning and sanitizing desk tops and counter tops won't help much if chairs and doorknobs, along with water fountains aren't also sanitized DAILY. The items most handled by students are actually pencils and they can't be sanitized. We just have to relax, build up our immunities and take it all one day at a time.

Ghysels wasn't asked for a quote and none from him was needed -- this story only needed facts verified by whatever school official would do so. He did, however, send letters home to parents, as the story states.

I think the editor Don revealed a bias toward supporting the superintendent with his unecessary comment to Evan. We don't need an editor to evaluate comments here and we certainly don't need a newspaper that slants coverage of a school district in need of change.
Don, stop shmoozing up at Maurice's house and listen to what this community is saying.
