'Everyone Had Their Heads in the Sand': Push To Reopen Schools Leaves Many Quarantined Students Without Remote Learning Options


September 3, 2021

Seven-year-old Catalina Mendez is pictured on Aug. 19, her first day of second grade at Prairie Park Elementary School in Lawrence, Kansas. On Monday, her whole class was sent home to quarantine because a boy tested positive for COVID-19.

Whitney DeHerrera's second-grader Catalina, who attends Lawrence Public Schools in Kansas, was sent home Monday for a 10-day quarantine - along with the other 21 students in her class.

But other than some paper assignments, which DeHerrera plans to spread out over the next several days, she wasn't given any guidance to keep her daughter on track.

"There was zero planning in how students are being educated when they are being sent home," she said. "They haven't offered any virtual learning, even though the teacher has no children for a whole week."
