A TORONTO TEACHER WRITES TO THE GLOBE ABOUT HER NERVOUSNESS RETURNING TO SCHOOL

LISA WOLFMAN’s letter to the Globe and Mail – ‘INSIDE THE BOX’ was to the point, and I read it at least three times. She wrote: “I am slated to be in a portable classroom with 26 students in a split class of grades 4 and 5. It will be impossible to put 26 desks at two metres apart. My board’s policy says that portable classroom doors are to remain locked at all times, and COVID-19 protocol is for fans to remain turned off to prevent possible spread.” <PS – THAT IS NOT Ms. Wolfman above.> “Imagine what it’s going to be like wearing a face mask for 300 minutes a day in these conditions. I cannot. If the Ontario government still feels it is unsafe for all Members of Parliament to return to Queen’s Park, how can it be safe for 26 children and one teacher to be confined to such a small space.” – Lisa Wolfman, Toronto, Globe and Mail, August 22/2020
