Haha right I know so many parents putting there kids in camps or a basically schools that aren’t schools. I also know so many ppl leaving public to go to private and find out they love it way more. YMCA camps went great over the summer. Kids need to get back in school. Put the child’s needs first u ask any young child, they will say they want to go to school and they’re devastated that they can’t. Let’s find a way and be creative even if that means the community comes together to support the school in anyway.

I don't know...of those 30 cases 1 was in Goleta and 2 were in Isla Vista and Zero were in Santa Barbara...I don't think we can open the schools. We can open bars, restaurants, movie theaters (to go along with everything else that is already open) but no...it would be too dangerous to put our kids in a safe spot to learn. Let's keep them running around doing random camps, church groups, rec centers, clubs, sports, parks, beaches, etc...that hodgepodge is definitely safer than trained professionals.
