Soooo when (if) things get back to normal you want to deliberately maintain the abnormality and turn the summer upside down?

You know how messed up all the kids (my own included, or maybe specifically my own) will be because of this? Weeks on end of no structure, no friends, minimal activities, etc.. and then to further keep their lives "off" doesn't paint a pretty picture in my mind.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

You pay the teachers 2/3 now (via unemployment) and pay them a 1/3 severance or make it up next year.... then you return 1/3 to the parent body (2/3 being eating by the govt and 1/3 need to make the teachers whole).
most schools as non-profits don't qualify for unemployment
Quote from: https://www.mass.gov/service-details/check-eligibility-for-unemployment-benefits#feedback
Who is not eligible
You may not be eligible for unemployment benefits if your only source of employment is from working as:

An employee of a non-profit or religious organization
A worker trainee in a program run by a nonprofit or public institution
A real estate broker or insurance agent who work only on commission
A consultant working independently
A student in a work-study program
An elected official
A government official in a policy-making and/or advisory position
A member of the legislative or judiciary body
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

I think I read that California canceled school for the rest of the year as well

I'm not sure what you mean. Summer vacation in and of itself is an abnormality. School is normal, structured life.

In my opinion kids need their summer break. However, maybe they can do half a day learning with half a day activities.

Let's assume schools stay closed for 3 months. Should there be school made up this summer?
Camps should all start Isru Chag. Next school year should start early

Good idea. We should send all the kids away to camp now (basically quarantine them away from all the adults) and then have school again when (if?) things ever get back to normal

It’s too late for that, likely too many infected people would be there by now.

After what’s going to be happening the next few months we're all going to need the summer vacation more than ever.
