In New York state, primary school children have been forced to eat their lunch outside despite plummeting temperatures, while students in California are following the same protocol and have endured rainy weather. School districts that are introducing these rules are doing so to help prevent the spread of Covid on the premises. The Mail has the story.
Elementary schools from New York to California are forcing students to eat outdoors in an effort to protect them from Covid, despite plummeting temperatures in the Empire State and rainy weather on the west coast.
And now, parents are lashing out against the school districts that are imposing those social distancing rules.
In New York City, elementary school students were forced to eat their lunches in cold weather on Wednesday.
“It’s getting a little ridiculous at this point,” a mum at MS 104 in Manhattan told the New York Post.
“They’ve eaten outdoors every day this week. It’s cold.”
In Brooklyn, another mum of a student at a Park Slope elementary school said her child began complaining about eating in the ever-dropping temperatures, having done so since the beginning of the school year back in late August.
“We’ve heard no plans to bring them inside anytime soon,” she told the New York Post.
