Even though schools reopened this week, traffic is lighter than normal because of the current COVID-19 surge. Many students have been absent from school due to the record-high COVID-19 positivity rates in South Florida.
According to @WSVN, about 1,700 teachers and a large number of bus drivers were out sick across the Miami Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) system on Tuesday.
M-DCPS Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho, led an environmental science class at Miami Jackson Senior High School in response to the shortages.
Despite the spike in cases, Florida school districts are not allowed to mandate mask wearing among students or staff. The district leader slammed the policy Tuesday. See what Carvalho had to say on his social media pages.
