Would you send your dc back to school in September if there was no social distancing?

I worry about how much longer dc are going to be expected to learn at home considering a lot of them aren't. However, if they're going to have to socially distance I can't really see a way forward.
YABU = No I wouldn't send them without social distancing
YANBU = Yes I would

Yes I would be happy to send them.

Entirely depends on the infection rate in September.

120% saying yes they would grin

Yes, I would actually prefer no social distancing than the current set up.

LettyBriggs Thu 04-Jun-20 20:30:32

I’m sending mine back this week and don’t care whether they social distance or not.

Absolutely. I would prefer there to be no social distancing between the children.

yes like a shot

RedAndGreenPlaid Thu 04-Jun-20 20:31:39

No. It's highly unlikely there wi be no transmission in communities by September.

The thought of my young DC's being made to social distance from their friends worries me far more.

LaurieMarlow Thu 04-Jun-20 20:33:01

Yup. No question.

Yes I'll think it'll be fine by then.

timeforawine Thu 04-Jun-20 20:34:52

Mines already gone back to nursery and will be starting school whenever they allow in September

My son has attended throughout. His needs mean social distancing is impossible. He literally licks others etc. I have had zero worries about him attending. It's incredibly
rare for children to have serious complications from it as we know from ONS etc

Toddlerteaplease Thu 04-Jun-20 20:36:35

Yes and they should all just go back now!

Toddlerteaplease Thu 04-Jun-20 20:37:08

With no social distancing.

bengalcat Thu 04-Jun-20 20:37:47

I would yes .

MinesAPintOfTea Thu 04-Jun-20 20:37:58

The social distancing is the keeping groups from mixing etc. So the bubbles. I thought that was going to be maintained, albeit with larger bubbles.

I hope they will not be required to adhere to physical distancing of 2m, and in fact doubt it's effectiveness in a bubble who are in the same room all day every day.

farfar Thu 04-Jun-20 20:38:21

Yes, 100%.

TBH I wish they weren't attempting to get reception and Y1 children to socially distance now, I think it's neither desirable nor achievable.

DS is high risk so no, not unless infection rates are drastically lower than they are now. We are lucky though as we’re in a position to continue homeschooling for a bit longer if necessary (not ideal but possible!)

Yes! The amount of teenagers out today in groups with zero social distancing. At least if they were all in school it would be far more controlled. Am a teacher and have no issue going back with no social distancing.
