    We’re totally not going back to school this year. It hasn’t been officially announced but I’m pretty certain it’ll happen. I miss my kids and I’m sad we’re missing out on the best part of the school year. I’m also sad that I might not see them again (other than video chats/meetings).

    I feel bad for the seniors. Like, boom. The high school experience and that race to the finish line are over. IF they even graduate on time.

    J saw someone complaining on facebook that their "baby isn't going to have her senior prom!" Shouldn't you be more concerned if your baby is going to be able to graduate? There are some schools that haven't moved to remote classes so are they kids going to be able to fulfill their obligations for graduation?

    I think it’s ok to be upset about not having prom. That’s a big deal for a high school senior. Most schools are figuring out how to have classes online. This is so unprecedented that I really don’t think schools are going to hold back any students. There are colleges offering online classes for seniors that would satisfy graduation requirements.

    Sure, but posting a woe is me Facebook update about it is attention seeking

    This is fantastic! Assuming they have to do summer session(s), or...?

    I don’t know how it’s working but I believe they can do the classes now. The site I saw it on was talking about the UC system so if any chickens know of seniors who might need to do this, check that out. If I can find the site where I found the info, I’ll post it.

    eta- Well now I can’t find it. I’m pretty sure I saw it on the CDE website.

    eta2- This isn’t the one I found the other day but it’s something: https://www.nu.edu/coronavirusresponse/

    Yeah it was definitely more of a "if you think you have it bad" type post. I will see if he can find it again.

    Around here things have been moved to online classes using video like Zoom and they’re still graduating and getting diplomas, just walking in August instead. No idea how testing works though, especially somewhere that is actually locked down like CA.

    Testing was cancelled for this year.

    I’m outing J’s workplace, but yes, NU is offering 3 months of free classes (not just for high school either!) Basically their high school sector operates like an online charter school.

    @fantasynerd I meant testing like finals for graduating college seniors.

    If any Bay Area chickens want to try Good Eggs, I have a coupon code for $25.

    So apparently CA hairdressers can lose their license if they make at home coloring kits for their clients.

    An annoying person I know made a similar comment on my post about coloring my hair at home yesterday. I'm trying to keep my few FB posts positive, but what I would have said if I were being myself is, good fucking luck enforcing any licensing or other restrictions on salons nationwide who are trying to cope with an unprecedented situation.

    Making a coloring kit is a hell of a lot less dangerous than doing coloring in person

    That’s messed up. So all these other businesses can offer delivery or curbside pickup, but not hair dressers? Way to kill another industry’s shot at making even a tiny bit of money to survive right now. :angry:

    This is why I think there is no realistic way that any enforcement action happens.

    But if people are sharing all over social media that X hairdresser gave them a color correct kit? Maybe not easy to enforce, but I wouldn’t risk my license and potential future career just in case.

    I mean, there are news articles about it in a number of major newspapers, so the cat is out of the bag with or without Facebook.

    True. I guess it’s up to them whether or not to take the risk then.

    Right. Also, speaking for my stylist, they have a post on their FB about it, including a video of how to apply the color. I for one wouldn't have said a word if it wasn't already a thing they were advertising (the same way I do not post photos of my dog when we are in a space that normally doesn't allow dogs). If anyone gives my stylist a hard time I will use my super lawyer skills to help them out pro bono :)
