How do you reopen schools in a pandemic? Washington State Superintendent candidates have different ideas

The role of the superintendent of public instruction has changed as the COVID-19 pandemic forced school districts to decide how to reopen or stay remote.

Candidates vying for the position in November have different ideas about what schooling during a pandemic should look like.

Incumbent Chris Reykdal, who leads the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, has made decisions with Gov. Jay Inslee about how schools should move forward this fall. He announced a guidance plan that left the decision up to school districts.

His opponent, Maia Espinoza, thinks he could have done more. She said parents need more support from OSPI when it comes to distance learning as many districts still scramble to come up with plans, leaving parents to decide at the last minute how to provide for their children.

Espinoza finished second in the August primary with 25.3% of votes, less than 5 percentage points above

There are also many new restrictions for visitors, including wearing masks, even outdoors, except when exercising, eating, or drinking. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) originally advised travelers from other countries or states with high COVID-19 rates to self-quarantine for 14 days. However, they have since removed those guidelines and are now sharing recommendations based

B-Mitch says a fast start is key for Washington against the Cardinals originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Though the Washington Football Team’s Week 1 win over the Philadelphia Eagles was memorable and impressive, the NFL is a “what have you done for me lately” business. That means come Sunday, all that will matter is how the team performs against the Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona itself is coming off an impressive win against the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers and houses a formidable defense and a talented offense led by quarterback Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. Week 2 will be anything but easy.

For Washington to leave the desert 2-0, former player and current NBC Sports Washington analyst Brian Mitchell believes three things must happen.

The first relates to the Burgundy and Gold’s talented defensive front. Receiving a lot of hype prior to the season, the unit delivered in Week
