I'm a father to a six year old girl, who is my world and who cannot wait to get back to school, and spend time with her friends and teachers. I understand the fears many parents have and reopening our schools is a controversial topic. I personally am in favor of schools reopening. Online distance learning is in place for those who aren’t ready to return. Though many in our community are and Carlsbad should be taking steps to accommodate all the members of the community.
