  1. I did calls for our Department of Health over the summer. I was considered a contact tracer, but the information I was gathering was pertaining to what symptoms, their duration, their sequence, their severity, whether there were any reoccurrences, how many other family members were exposed and how many of those actually tested positive for COVID, etc. All of the information remained confidential and went into a larger database. It was for medical/ academic purposes - not specifically to notify others of exposure.
  2. We do everything in person. As no one in the household ever stopped going out to work, we just started doing things as they were reopened. All of my kids and I work outside the house. School is in person. Athletics are in person. So our days are no different than pre-covid. We always follow all mask and social distancing regulations.
  3. I would talk to an advisor in her first and second choice college/university. Preferably the advisor for her intended major/field, not the freshman advisor! We chose to drop all high school classes from the transcript. My dd took high school classes in 7th, 8th and 9th. In our state we don't have to declare those classes as long as she wasn't in a brick and mortar classroom. They really just muddied the transcript and weren't of any particular use. And she chose to take classes at both a university and community college at the same time in order to get around the limit (so option 3). She
  4. Well, it is early so things can change. ☺️ Definitely planning on Blue Tent for math and English. BT Algebra II BT H English II American History I want an online class with live meetings each week. I have not found what I am looking for. Hoping something new/different will be offered. Currently learning toward Florida Virtual school for science - though wouldn't mind something else if we can find it. FLVS H Meteorology: Segment II (fall) / FLVS Chemistry: Segment I (spring) Ds is hoping to take two art electives through dual enrollment, but we won't know
  5. I've been very happy with my son's Algebra 1 class this year. It has two live classes per week and office hours on a third day. None of those are required, though I encourage him to get to all three each week. The two live lessons are also recorded and students can watch them on their own, or skip them all together. We had had previous experiences with the English classes as well and plan to do English and math through Blue Tent again next year.
  6. The person who cooks chooses the meal (within reason). I'm not buying shrimp and steak as an everyday meal.
  7. I think the reason you are not hearing back is that it is still registration/drop-add for most colleges. I would wait another week or two and then contact the schools again. Answers to those questions are so college and program specific.
  8. My son has a Garmin Fenix 5 and an I-phone. He says that has never happened to him. It re-pairs automatically without any sort of code needed. He is part of a large city wide running club. Many of the them have Garmin watches and he has never heard anyone say anything like that or seen anyone need to re-pair their phone and watch (and they are always comparing splits, looking at previous times, etc on both their watches and their phones). I would assume some of them have Android phones paired to their watches.
  9. All four of my kids take (or did take) the ACT or SAT each year to meet the Florida homeschool requirement. I've been doing this for ten years with four children and I've never had any issues. ETA: I start them all taking it in the 7th grade.
  10. Red shouldered hawk. I heard it before I saw it. It woke me up yesterday morning so I sat up in bed and saw it out the bedroom window. ☺️
  11. My dd was in a similar situation. She worked as a waitress at an assisted living home. They tend to need people regularly. There is no money exchanging hands and the pace is slower than a restaurant. The pay was pretty good. She enjoyed it and got to know the residents well.
  12. Does anyone know when the Black Friday code expires?
  13. Following as well. I see she is teaching it again this year. Just starting to think ahead to next year. 🙂
