Obviously a lot of other schools are doing the same. Not sure I understand the logic. Instead of containing all the students in one area, you are sending them off to all 50 states plus foreign countries. Whats going to happen in two weeks?

I think the logic is strictly a liability one. Schools don't want lawsuits so better the kids get the virus elsewhere.

Those kids on spring break will have been more exposed to more people especially those flocking to Florida etc. What the schools might have to deal with students coming back from spring break might be even scarier.

Two of my sisters' kids are home for Spring Break. They go to Ohio State and UGA. They won't be going back to school after break. They will be finishing up their semester at home, on line.
