HealthDay Reports: Will Schools Reopen in September? And What Will That Look Like?
Two experts share how the upcoming school year could look different for students and teachers.
THURSDAY, June 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The boisterous bustle of students jostling down crowded hallways to reach lockers and classrooms has long served as one of the most powerful memories of high school life for many.
Those loud, happy throngs might now belong to a bygone era, thanks to COVID-19.
Schools planning to reopen in the fall are weighing what's called the "pod" approach, in which middle and high school students remain isolated with their peers in the same classroom all day, said Dan Domenech, executive director of The School Superintendents Association.
The traditional between-class hallway jam "really is conducive to infection, as opposed to isolating them in the same room for the whole day," Domenech said during a HealthDay Live! interview.
