I’m obviously spending a lot of time thinking about school closures, and the thought of closing down for the rest of the school year had not even occurred to me:

I’m trying to wrap my head around what that would look like and what it would mean. It’s not giving me good feelings.
If this was the case, would districts have to do what L.A. is doing and buy devices for all students without them like what it appears they are doing:

Would districts just “punt” on the rest of the year and possibly extend next year?
