Well our schools will shut down at end of day Wednesday and be closed until mid April. Spent the day putting grades in around prepping for online class transition as an in the event and at 5pm we were told no school and since other districts in the state aren't ready for implementing online we are all just closing for essentially a month. Regular teachers paid as usual. Those that are paid by the day that had long terms - well I can't say. I'm losing pay the entire time. Fortunate that husband is still working but who knows. My check makes the ends meet and takes care of the extras. I have hay to get through April and into May, supplements as well. I'll get the dogs and cat enough, fill two cans for the chickens and as long as the chickens lay we will not starve. I'll also do my hurricane prep early. Maybe in the month off I can gentle one of the beef cows and convince her to let us have enough for coffee and the growing boy to drink. It will be interesting to see what develops with the schools, we had already started offering distance learning for those that preferred to stay home. It meant not so much increase in demand for classrooms as communities grow and schools can't keep up.
