    She does have 15 feet straight up.
    Then ladders? Yeah, definitely ladders.

    There are nearly 100,000 students in Jefferson County.

    Freedom Hall holds, at last count, 19,000. (And that's packed.)

    The Commonwealth Convention Center has a capacity of 7,000.

    This assumes the businesses that hold their conventions, concerts, and other activities can be moved.

    It also ignores buses, food, bathrooms, and all the little headaches that go into school stuff.

    That gym already has classes in it. All day.

    I'm thinking more of the convention halls than the arena. And just spreading people out to get to a point where one could accommodate half capacity at a time with distancing.

    I see there's actually a knife show at Freedom Hall next month, though. Oh Louisville, never change!

    What class? PE. PE has to go, unfortunately.

    This could be just me but, personally, I feel like the first hand experience of parents/teachers that agree with my stance tend to be more accurate and meaningful than the first hand experience of parents/teachers that don't.

    Except that BZ’s argument was that a bunch of teachers don’t understand that there are old school buildings. Tf.

    If my memory serves me well from several years ago during the 2020 primaries, BZ can tend to express his opinions in very all-or-nothing extremes while omitting pertinent information conveniently. Therefore, I would move him from the previous category to the latter, even though I may agree with his overall point, out of principle and my own unresolved bitterness against centrism stans.

    No, that's not my argument, FCB.

    I said that for my city, having school virtually instead of in-person was the right call.

    I provided evidence, fwiw, of a classroom wherein keeping kids six feet apart is an impossibility. I provided evidence that it's a physical impossibility to keep kids six feet apart in the hallways, the cafeteria, or the buses.

    I realize that interferes with your presupposition. I realize that it runs counter to some teacher experiences.

    It does not change the facts, however.

    Feel free to denigrate my personality, but I reject Larry's inference that I'm omitting pertinent information. (Show me, after all, where that's the case here.)

    As to the other comments, if you have issues with me, feel free to PM.

    That's a novel approach.

    How would you keep distance between classes and teachers teaching different subjects?

    Or maybe different people have experienced different situations and everyone should respect that.

    I respect your opinion but I must kindly disagree with the assertion of my own post you quoted. :-)

    Not sure, but perhaps some temporary walls. My wife's school in Rhode Island was complete trash (hit an 800 foot HR to CF at the Paw Sox Stadium and you'd hit it), and that's basically what you had separating "classrooms". Terrible solution, but it "works". I'm sure that's not a real solution, but there's got to be some unused open spaces in Louisville that schools could use to spread out. Did they ever tear down the Showcase Cinemas on Bardstown Road? (My precious childhood memories, lost ).

    No one should have to be from Pawtucket.
