Opening or Not?

7-Jan-2021 • San Francisco, California United States

It was last December when my employer, a school district in the East Bay, informed me and the rest of the staff, that school will not open for the remainder of the school year.  Instead, we would continue teaching via ZOOM.  Then last week, the governor of California announced that schools will reopen in mid February for K-2 while Grades 3 and up will begin a month later.

While I am open to returning to in person teaching in the spring, I wonder when I'll get the vaccine.  To be honest, the only time I will return to work is when I get vaccinated.  Yet, when I called my medical provider as to when I can get the vaccine, they had no idea.  There is so much talk about teachers getting the vaccine next after the elderly and the medical frontliners, yet there is little action.  There is no concrete schedule for the rollout.
