Erie Times E-Edition Article-COVID pushes Northwestern students to online classes

If masks work, why go remote?

The assumption is some are infected outside of school, the virus is assumed to be in house. Why else impose mandatory masks?

Going remote tells me neither the NW school district nor Erie County health believes masks work against viruses.

This is all theater geared to keep you afraid and under control. Keeping CARES “case” count reimbursements up doesn’t hurt either.

Students in the Northwestern School District moved to remote learning Friday due to increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases.

The Albion-based district also canceled all extracurricular activities for Thursday and Friday evenings, with events to resume Saturday, according to information on the

Northwestern website and its Facebook page .

A Northwestern School District COVID-19 tracker on the website said that as of Friday at 11 a.m., the district had three positive cases at Northwestern Elementary School, four at Springfield Elementary, three at Northwestern Middle and 12 at Northwestern High School.

The website and Facebook post state: ‘Due to the increasing number of COVID cases and the possible exposures from various events throughout the district and weekend, the district administration, in consultation with the Erie County Department of Health, has made the decision to transition to remote learning.’

Northwestern students are scheduled to resume face-to-face learning on Nov. 30.

The calendar on the school district’s website indicates that there is no school Monday or Tuesday due to parent-teacher conferences and teacher training, respectively.
