Opening Schools During a Pandemic

J. Junker

Students, teachers, parents and administrators are preparing to start school, this year in the midst of a pandemic. What is the safest way to get students back to learning? What are the potential impacts on the health and wellbeing of students in both in person and remote learning models? And what will be the response when students or staff test positive? On The Point, we discuss how local schools are planning to re open and hear from teachers and parents about their concerns.


Guests on the program are as follows:

Dr. Greg Parkinson, pediatrician

Chelsea Craig, president of the Sandwich Education Association

Pam Gould, Superintendent of Sandwich Public Schools

Scott Carpenter, Superintendent of Monomoy Regional School District


Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
