(Beaver Dam) Do not send your kids to school if they are sick. That’s the word from educators as they begin work today to navigate through the challenges of teaching students during a pandemic. We asked Beaver Dam School Superintendent Mark DiStefano last week on WBEV’s Community Comment if it is a good idea to send children back to school during a pandemic. His answer was (quote) “yes definitely” as long as the district exercises its due diligence in following safety practices and as long as parents do not send children to school who are exhibiting any symptoms of illness. DiStefano says the benefits of sending kids to school outweighs the drawbacks.
