I get frustrated easily when my kids don’t know what they are doing

Homeschool is ok, but I get frustrated easily when my kids don’t know what they are doing because I feel like they should’ve been taught it at school.

I'm disappointed my daughter will not be able to see her favorite teacher again.

The added demands to learn remotely have been very hard for my our whole family.

The added demands to learn remotely have been very hard for my our whole family. I would appreciate it if it was presented as a "do what you're able to" and expectations relaxed.

I wish the schools had clear procedures in place because the standards are unclear. 

I wish the schools had clear procedures in place because the standards are unclear. Teachers seem irritated when you ask for clarification. Principals are vague. The school system is blaming the state.

We are worried about my husband's potential exposure to COVID and my high risk pregnancy. 

I am a DOE teacher and I am expected to work “full time” (they just cancelled spring break too) and I have a 2.5 year old at home and I am 21 weeks pregnant. My husband is also home but he has been on leave for two weeks and works in a hospital and we don’t know what his options are going forward. We are worried about his potential exposure to COVID and my high risk pregnancy. We are sad for our daughter who misses school so much. We are worried about his possible loss of job in order to keep our family safe. We are worried about me breaking quarantine to go to the OBGYN.
