‘It’s all there. The pencils, the masks, the notebooks. She’s chosen to send them back into the world.’: Mom weighs in on school reopening crisis, ‘She hopes it will be enough’

“It’s a calculated risk, and not one she is taking lightly. Every cough will be monitored. Every runny nose will be analyzed.
