He took and is taking so much heat for the nursing home fiasco, he wants to put this on the local districts shoulders.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Is he taking that from the Trump playbook? Let the local politicians figure it out

This letter seems to imply they are transitioning to virtual.
Not really. They are preparing for if they have too but they have no imminent plans to do so.

Now you know why schools in Lakewood are not testing. That are not interested in having the government 3 ring circus make their decisions for them.

Their virtual option is also sorely lacking.

A preschool class in BYBP was shut down due to a teacher being exposed (not positive) to the virus.

There are many classes in Flatbush/BP currently home in quarantine - in BY of 18th Avenue, Torah V'Daas (possibly 2 grades), Lev BY, Ohr Shraga Veretzky, Toras Emes Kaminetz, Masores, Bnos Yaakov, and that's just the ones I've heard of.

Sadly, one of the aforementioned classes was not planning to quarantine despite a positive test for a student until a class father, who is an infectious disease doctor, got into a big argument with the administration and gave them no choice. Heard from said class father.

And this is before everyone gets together for unmasked RH/YK/Simchas Torah. Someone said this could end up giving us a new p'shat in Yom K-Purim, r"l.

Do you not think that maybe if there are positive cases in a class that for the safety of the boys, their families and all the people that they may come into contact with that maybe the classmates should be quarantined and tested before going back to school? These decisions should not be about the government it should be about our safety.

Safety of the boys is a non starter. The number of fatalities among children is beyond negligible. As far as potential spread to rabbeim and families, that  really depends on your outlook. If you are comfortable with 0 deaths and 3 hospitalizations in Lakewood out of close to 1000 cases over the past few weeks, and/ or feel that spread to those who havenít yet been infected is inevitable sooner or later, that is going to factor into your approach.

What I am concerned about is a return to the March/April numbers (and deaths C'V). Do I know that if we do nothing that is where we are heading? No I don't know that, but that is a reasonable concern. So do we do nothing and hope that doesn't happen again or do we take the measures now when the numbers are still small to try and prevent us from possibly heading someplace where we have been and don't want to go again?

With this virus you need to be proactive not reactive.

What does this have to do with a school being closed down.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Any logical person realizes it's impossible for us to get to what happened in March/April for many reasons including at risk people taking precautions and the fact that there is some level of immunity.
