As Trump Demands That Schools Fully Re-Open, Barron Trump’s School Says It Will Not

President Donald Trump is pushing for all schools to fully reopen. And he is getting resistance for schools all over the country, including the one that his son attends.

People magazine reports:

“Despite President Donald Trump’s push to have schools reopen their classrooms in the fall, his son Barron Trump won’t be sitting in class full-time anytime soon.

The private St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Maryland — which the 14-year-old began attending after moving to Washington, D.C. — announced this week that while a final decision has yet to be made, it is planning not to fully reopen its campus in the fall because of novel coronavirus concerns.

The school shut down and switched to online learning in the spring.

In a letter to parents this week, St. Andrew’s said it is preparing either to continue with online classes or to implement a hybrid plan for the next school year, which would use both e-learning and in-person classes by allowing groups of its students to return to campus in cycles, along with social distancing.

‘We are hopeful that public health conditions will support our implementation of the hybrid model in the fall,’ the school’s letter says.

The school also told parents that it is ‘continuing to pay close attention to current guidance from state and county health officials, as well as the CDC, as the health status of our region evolves.'”
