    You can’t complain if you sent your child too school.

    Again, those students quarantined were in direct contact with somebody At the school who tested positive.

    The kids that go into isolation from school are the ones who came in contact with a student/teacher from that school who had a positive test.

    People the numbers are accurate.

    The calls you get are informing you of so.eone that came in contact and not a positive case. Kids go into isolation until they are ruled out.

    So many people are upset that the schools and businesses opening back up didn’t result in the mass infection/ death rate that they predicted ( actually craved for). So they cry “LIES,LIES!”

    “These numbers don’t add up here especially to the calls about positive cases I received that suddenly stopped at one point I had 4 calls in one week from an above middle school How can we trust a system that cannot be truthful with our children Hopeless at this point.“

    We have two grandchildren at one of these schools and what is reported here is what we have heard from the school. There just isn’t that much to be concerned with.

    We are torturing our kids and teachers for these numbers. Just wrong.

    These numbers are correct. Because someone gets calls of someone showing symptoms, that is one thing. But once that same individual gets tested and it comes back false, that is something else. Everyone predicting the end of the world, and kids never catch colds or have cold like symptoms, right?

    >> These numbers are definitely NOT correct…Where did they come from?

    First line of the story answers that:

    These numbers are definitely NOT correct. They are underreported. That’s a fact.

    Where did they come from?

    These numbers don’t add up here especially to the calls about positive cases I received that suddenly stopped at one point I had 4 calls in one week from an above middle school How can we trust a system that cannot be truthful with our children Hopeless at this point
