USA TODAY Sports

He’s said it before, and he’ll say it again.

Dak Prescott repeated Friday on SiriusXM NFL Radio what he has said many times since failing to reach a long-term deal with the Cowboys by the July 15 deadline.

I’m very optimistic,” Prescott said. “That’s business, and there’s all kind of avenues in business of why it might not get worked out. I’m very confident that I’ll be a Cowboy, and as I’ve said before, I plan to be a Cowboy for the rest of my career. So there’s no worries when it goes into that. There’s no thoughts that I allow to distract me. This is the place to be. As I talk about the team and how exciting this offense can be with the new coaching staff, how great this defense is going to be, and this team, in general. This is the place

In preparing for the opening of its seven schools, district officials scheduled the nine school-specific parent information Zoom meetings; the meetings are in addition to the district’s previous public meeting held on August 6.

HCPS Virtual Learning Plan Approved By Harford County Board Of Ed

HARFORD COUNTY, MD — The Harford County Board of Education approved the administration’s proposal at its meeting Monday night to hold the fall 2020–2021 semester online.

“Core elements” of the plan are fully virtual instructiond with the option of learning centers for in-person support, Harford County Public Schools Superintendent Sean Bulson said.

His plan was approved, 8-1, and the dissenting vote was cast by Tamera Rush, who represents the northern part of Harford County.

The vote on Bulson’s plan for virtual learning followed hours of school administrators fielding questions about logistics..

While a hybrid model with in-person and virtual instruction had been considered, Bulson said it would not be feasible to educate the over 37,000 Harford County students in that format.

“We were not going to be able to deliver logistically to provide a good instructional program” and deliver on safety, Bulson said.

Coronavirus data in recent months also showed

Students enrolling in college for the 2020-21 school year are facing a very different set of circumstances than ever before.

Other schools plan to hold in-person classes, but with social distancing and other safety measures in place.

NYC Releases School Reopening Plan

NEW YORK CITY — Parents and teachers, it’s time to cram on New York City’s school reopening plan.

The city’s Department of Education dropped the 109-page plan online Friday afternoon — a day that saw Gov. Andrew Cuomo officially give schools the green light to reopen, as well as a deadline for New York City parents to opt for all remote learning.

The plan was submitted to the state and, if approved, will form the framework for school amid a coronavirus world.

“Make no mistake: New York City students will still be learning 5 days a week,” wrote Chancellor Richard Carranza in the plan’s introduction. “A major difference is that we are preparing to deliver their education through a blended learning model. Blended learning means students will be taught on-site in school for part of the week, and will attend school remotely on the other days of the week.”

Inside one school’s unorthodox reopening plan

DETROIT — With just days to go before the start of the new academic year, schools around the country are rushing to gather materials they never thought they would need: plexiglass dividers, piles of masks and internet hot spots to connect with students remotely.

And then there are schools that have an even more unusual list.

The Detroit Waldorf School in Michigan is buying carriage bolts, berry bushes and 8,000 square feet of cedar wood.

The San Francisco Unified School District has been busy gathering tree stumps.

And the Five Town Community School District in Maine is buying tents, yurts and enough all-weather snowsuits for each of its elementary school students.

These schools and districts are all laying the groundwork to move at least some instruction to outdoor classrooms. They’re making a bet that the lower risk of disease transmission in the open air, and the extra space outside for
