We read the text of this tweet before we took a close look at the photo and thought it was a tweet from Liberty District 70 in Lake County, Illinois, celebrating the return of students to in-person learning. It looks like we were wrong, though; the district is just happy to see the multipurpose room back in action, now that plexiglass shields are in place to separate the kids while they eat lunch.

This is almost as bad as that school that zipped members of the school band into little COVID tents.

But, science!

At least these kids are in a room together … that’s progress for some school districts.
