Probably the Williams Act.  There’s no way a district/school can guarantee EVERY kid has equal access to learning materials...even if they’ve all been issued equipment or books or whatever.  

Yeah we got a note that none of my kids homework can be graded, but that the teachers want them doing something to keep them in a learning routine 

note:  this is just elementary school

So do my kids.  They were getting homework almost immediately.  They were not amused.

My rock headed 4th grader is very disappointed that his plan of “making sick memes on YouTube” for the next month is going to be replaced by doing virtual school work.

There is a live Zoom happy hour video chat going on right now featuring my family, friends, and a couple of FBGs. If you’re not FB friends with me PM me for meeting code and password.

Sorry to miss it, but I couldn't abide by the "must wear pants" rule.  Will you be hosting another?

Lost my sister on Sunday. She wasn't answering calls or texts so my brother and i went to her place in the afternoon,  could hear her phone ringing and ended up breaking the door down. 

Find her slumped over in her chair. Checked for a pulse but she was gone. They figure she was dead for about 12 hours,  that she had a heart attack.  56 years old. 

Saturday night she got to see my daughters debut with a new band that I was Facebooking live. She was supposed to go but she wasn't feeling well. Her last text to me was a  👍 when I told her I'd call her on Sunday. 

Live for today and tell your loved ones you love them, no one's promised a tomorrow. 

😥

Very sorry, buddy.

Someone in another thread said that this whole thing has shut down the illicit drug trade.   

You know you can get pot delivered in our area?  We live in a beautiful world.

Weed is legal.  I don’t consider it an illicit drug.  I was more commenting on other cheap and plentiful things

Guys?  I'm going to leave the house tomorrow.  Wish me luck.  It's been six days.

ETA:  Unless you count going a block over to get the mail today.

Does this mean you have to wear pants?

Been out of the house twice in a week. Went grocery shopping Friday morning, which was interesting, and bought paint at Home Depot this morning for a couple of closets and then drove by our regional library bc Mrs. O got a hot tip about a water main busted out front. Epic days.

Free app gives you 40 minutes.  If it lasts longer, I'll put a new login in here and we can keep it going.   It's actually pretty fun.  Sort of an interactive version of the old shot videos.  Nice to see some familiar and some new faces.

looks like it could be a while til roverkid can come home.   good news is she's probably way safer there.

She made it to HI?  Wasn’t sure if that had happened. My niece went to the big island from Maui. I know her parents were trying to get her home, not sure if they did or not.  Lemme know if you need anything there. I know your brother lives there, but nice to have another family connection.

GMTAN virtual happy hour tomorrow?  

Just download zoom cloud app.   Get a drink.  Log on.  If there is interest, I'll set one up for 4 pm PDT.

Thanks, brother.  My brother has lived there since 1985.   He lives out in the jungle, so he's social distanced by default.   I have an induction stove so she didn't realize his stove was heating up and she set a cutting board on fire.   Other than that, she's doing well and says she'd rather ride it out there for a few months than here where it's raining and ugly.  There are only 3 reported cases on the Big Island, all from travel.   They'll be fine.
