Summer parties, teacher shortages push suburban schools to scrap COVID-19 reopening plans

Colleges aren't the only schools that have had to close their doors soon after reopening.
And in some cases, school officials are laying the blame for their changing plans on families in their communities, where graduation and end-of-summer parties prompted spikes in positive COVID-19 cases.
That's what happened in the Carle Place School District in Long Island, New York, where Superintendent Christine A. Finn announced school would start with remote learning last Wednesday rather than in person.
