Exclusive: Growing Number Of Kansas City Youngsters Impacted By Illness Related To Coronaviurs Threatens To Cancel School Reopen Through Remainder Of 2020



As the pandemic moves along and Kansas City navigates the tumultuous "reopen" process, a new facet of growing infections threatens to complicate plans.

To wit and without our normal hyperbole . . .

Behind the scenes, KCPS now considers cancelling the 2020 fall classes given the growing number of infections now hitting students and youngsters along with the inability to enforce social distancing among teens.

Okay, just a bit of hyperbole . . .

SCHOOL'S OUT FOREVER AS LONG AS CORONAVIRUS CONTINUES SPREADING!!!

At the outset of the pandemic there was a myth that youngsters weren't hurt by the pandemic. However, this neglects that teens and youngsters can act as "super spreaders" and many students suffer immunocompromised conditions.

Fact: Students have always been germ-y but coronavirus adds a frightening and potentially lethal element to these large gatherings of youngsters who habitually are gathered close to one another only to return later in the day to homes and communities.

Accordingly, KCPS still has a while to figure out the dilemma. The number of infections, hospitalizations and deaths as we move forward should help determine the best course of action.

Sadly, the schools across the metro might not look the same anytime soon and it seems that Zoom classrooms have largely failed the NEXTGEN. Meanwhile, KC's provisionally accredited school district works to protect teachers, staff, administrators and students as the pandemic evolves.

home school is the future.


And much like parents. Being able to work successfully in front of a computer for long periods of time will determine their success in life.

Unless they're doing something useless like reading blogs during the day.

Sending your kid out to a germ factory school during cold and rainy flu season that also coincides with a pandemic.

No thanks.

This is not true. There are no sick kids due the the virus evolving. They are milking this virus. There is a bigger agenda behind the scare tactics. The very people who are forcing this BS are the ones getting hair cuts and going to parties when they told everyone to stay home. I've been in doctors offices and hospitals throughout this whole thing and this is a lie!

^^Does that actually seem reasonable to you?

That someone is deliberately conning you/us?

It seems bat-shit crazy to me.

You mean like headlines that scare you into clicking their link and reading their story?

You mean un/elected officials scaring you into giving them bigger and bigger budgets?

You mean the medical industrial complex scaring people to depend on their services and products more and more?

You mean lawyers and big business salivating at all of the new laws and legislation they will be able to take advantage of for years to come?

Clearly all these institutions have nothing but the most noble of intentions. They (not you) know what is best for you in every aspect of your life. /s

Time to send all the children back to school so they can infect and cull the MAGAT herd. Bring the 'Rona home to Cletus, Mary Sue, and the rest of the drooling Covidiots. Bankrupt what's left of their mortgaged-to-the-hilt home. Watch as the run to racist grandpappy for another trust fund handout. Sit back and watch the "poor us" Facebook posts as MAGATS croak alone in local ERs.

So long sad times
Go long bad times
We are rid of you at last
Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

Kcps isn’t teaching kids anything anyway, shut’em down permanently and save hundreds of millions of dollars so Kathryn shields can give it away to pay developers to come here. Makes perfect sense to me! Lol!

Jesus fucking gullible idiots. How stupid the MSM thinks you are.

A second case of a disease that predates chink flu. Not all the kids even test positive for the chink flu. Dr.s have not even found a link, but they are trying real hard to.

When this turns out to be as fake as the fake pandemic they will have some new fear to fear monger you with. Stay scared, stay glued to your TV news, stay home you fucking pussy gullible bootlickers.

Thinking adults are starting to rebel against the scare tactics so now they'll shift the fear porn to kids.

I read in this morning's Wall Street Journal the US birthrate has hit a new low. If people keep having to keep their brats at home, expect it to go even lower!

Not at all dumbfuck. All those dead people have done the statistically impossible and caused the rate of flu death to drop precipitously along with all other mortality rates. Well, except suicide. You fucking progs really found your golden goose to terrify idiots of all walks of life from an imaginary boogeyman.
