The CDC is said to be recommending all K-12 schools go back to wearing masks even if the student is vaccinated. I would get on the phone with your students Prep School and find out what they plan on doing. Many schools made vaccination mandatory for next year, now to tell these kids they need to wear a mask all day everyday again will lead to unenrollment's like never seen! Many of these schools are lead by health teams that use these guidelines and will not waiver for any reason. Prep schools hockey is done if this happens, I know my son will not be going back, and just received 15 texts from people I asked that will not put their kids through this again like last year.
Agree with you. My son will not go back. Is it too late to find a Jr team?
I think it will vary by school, those schools with extrememly large endowments (Exeter/Andover, etc.), at the end of the day, they don't care about sports and can survive. But for those schools with very small endowments (Kimball Union, Dexter, etc.) they are going to have to figure it out as they need sports to fill up their enrollment as they aren't glowing academic institutions.
No F ucking way will we put masks back on because some lazy self righteous a ssholes won’t get a vaccination. Prep schools are screwed! They are going to mandate it and kids are going to walk. My kid won’t go to school if they try it. He can start working.
Am I a lazy self righteous a##hole because I'm not going to allow the govt to force me or anyone in my family to get an experimental vaccine being forced on the public for political reasons?
Nope, dont get the flu vaccine an d not getting this POS one either, have a good night....
This person is the problem and there are too many out there like them. As a vaccinating individual i don't plan to go through life wearing a mask in public because of people scared of a vaccine. You should be scared of delta. I wonder if you will feel the same way about the vaccine when you find yourself or one of your kids on a ventilator fighting to survive. I will be thinking of you while watching a prep hockey game and how this whole thing was unavoidable. As more get vaccinated and as the virus continues to mutate your risk will increase. Good luck. Way to believe in science and innovation to save a life and improve society.
Not dying > dying. Vaccinated > unvaccinated. 99 > every other player in the sport.
I spoke with my kids prep coach yesterday about this. The prep school will be requiring everyone to be vaccinated and therefore will not be implementing the mask guidance from the CDC. Anyone can wear a mask if they want. He had already spoke with administration regarding it. It appears at this time that all NEPSAC schools will be requiring full vaccination and he didnt anticipate any issue with sports.
Prep schools will be fine. Vaccinations probably required but that will be the norm most places.
People are fed up with masks, we all put up with them waiting for vaccines, they are here, and vaccinated people will attend schools as usual.
This is all a last minute ploy to tick people off to get the rest vaccinated for fall.
Remember we just need to flatten the curve so we don't overwhelm the health care system.
Yes flatten the curve - 2 weeks. Those were the days
Don’t pay the money for prep. My kid was miserable last year, had 14 games and the school had these kids on lockdown like cell block 6. No fun, no letup, no common sense. These “educators” are are bunch on sheep and are keeping kids “safe” 24/7 from a virus that has zero consequence on their age group. If you send junior, you will regret it.
Repeat after me, PREP SCHOOL IS FOR BOOK WORMS AND LIBERAL RETARDS. You don't need the CDC to tell you to wear a mask to understand.
