Thank you. I’m confident about the measures the schools have put in place. The eldest’s school (secondary) even sent a video giving a mini tour and telling them what changes that have been made and how they will need to move around the school.For all of you who have children returning to school next week - or just back, I hold you in my thoughts

Your boy will be fine. They really do adapt quicker than us adults. My son started secondary (high) school last year and I couldn’t take him nor run through the route with him. He had to take the bus from the first day and he made it back just fine.Thank you
My 11 year old boy goes Monday from 1:05-3:05 for orientation, and then will go Wednesdays and Fridays. He's starting a new school and it's a 3 minute walk from our front door. As usual, the boy who's been barefoot all summer is having a hard time adjusting to shoes. He is happy about going, didnt want to end up all online like his 15 year old sister.
This is all so weird! Worrying about him adjusting to a new school and walking himself there alone just isnt happening. Masks, hand sanitizer, being worried I'm not worried enough...cautiously optimistic they have good practices in place...
My son has to wear a mask on the bus. And this has been stated by both the school and bus company. The school has hand sanitizers set up at each of the entrances and also in the classrooms.It is hard to know what is best, our secondary have sent info and videos for my youngest who starts next week, which also applies to the older one too, but the wearing of masks on the bus is contradictory between the school and travel company, the school info says yes wear on bus, the bus info says not compulsory as yet nothing about wearing masks in school in communal areas or corridors.
They both have masks, they will both have their own sanitiser and I will encourage them to wear the masks but I can't take them as I'll be in school myself so I just have to hope they do, it hasn't been an issue when we've been out but with their friends might be different.
We've been told there will be people to meet them off the bus at school and direct to sanitiser or hand washing etc but because it's not a public bus they were initially told they didn't have to wear a mask, then school are saying they do. Will see what happens next week.My son has to wear a mask on the bus. And this has been stated by both the school and bus company.
