Got an email the other day from the high school principal about a probable positive. Got an email today about a lab test positive. Same person? That's probably too convenient to report.

Yea it is definitely a double edged sword.

I have never seen a sellers market like this, even when I was in Houston pre 2006. It is insane.

My wife and I have been thinking about moving out to the country for a while and already own the land, but the school district out there is garbage. It is tempting to sell though.


Just quoting so you'll check the board. Hope all is well.

just a bump.

no BHS and THS game this year which is sad.

I've heard some districts are thinking about not coming back after Thanksgiving to give any cases a time to settle over the holidays. Don't hate it from a standpoint of instead of half the grades missing because of primary contacts with positive cases all of December and they can all just finish out the year, but don't love it from a standpoint of having a bit of normalcy for the kids to finish the year and what that's going to do to parents for a month.

I sure hope not. That puts the parents in a terrible position and the kids will wind up staying with grandparents, other friends, day cares, etc. because parents still have to work. As of right now, I think school would be a better place for them.

exactly. we're in a unique situation where it is somewhat sustainable, because i work from home when i'm not traveling, and my wife can teach virtually, although it's been a real bear when she's had to do it while we're all in the same room. i can't imagine what that's like for 2 parents working out of the home.


then i read that Biden's plan is for us to shut down for another 4-6 weeks if/when he assumes office. not trying to F16 this thread, but the real world implications of that is absolutely insane. we've been cooped up in a single bedroom apartment during our remodel. i really actually might go insane if we're still in there and this takes effect.

A 4-6 week shutdown for everybody? I hadn't seen that yet.

That is what members of his covid task force are advocating for.

Again, I won't F16 this board, but that is the general consensus.

All things considered I am pretty pleased with BISD so far. My kids are at Lakewood and Lake Belton Middle. They are learning. It certainly isn't perfect or exactly what I would want but compared to what my friends in the big cities are dealing with Il take it.

Daughter and I Spent the evening at Ralph Wilson doing volleyball with the Temple College coach. Most of that stuff is completely closed in the major cities.


Lets hope it stays this way.
