My entire school district just got shutdown...

We have 2 cases in the county...

Not 2 students cases, 2 cases total...

Does that qualify as an overreaction or no?

Our county has 0 cases and we're off school. I think it's an overreaction but at least they're doing something to stop it's spread.

I think it's a good move. I'd much rather be safe than sorry in this case. I know we kinda think "Oh there's only a small chance it's going to kill us", but we could for sure still get sick (which would not be fun) and could spread it around to people who are more likely to die. Jaggie and I's school of 3500 kids is a great example of a great place for the virus to spread, along with many other schools.
i eat a lot of pizza!!

We're doing online schooling for 2 weeks, and the only case nearby is in a different county. Better safe than sorry would be true, as this is happening for schools throughout the country who have no cases!

We just bring in high schoolers from previous years to coach us.
I think that is wha most of the kids will do on my team
I competed in Division B last year as a ninth grader because I joined in January of eighth grade and I didn't feel like I had enough experience to make the Div C team since I go to Troy. At Kraemer, we've never had more than two ninth graders in a year. There are many good reasons to come back to Division B, such as the leadership opportunity and not being ready for Division C.
Last year, after the graduation of a grade that was particularly enthusiastic about SciOly(making up ~20 out of the 30-person full roster), we brought 9th graders back for the first time. Most of my previous partners had been in that grade, so bringing some of them back helped make working with partners easier and changed the overall chemistry of the team. They are nice for covering older events when no one new is strong enough to cover them adequately, as well as for keeping younger students in line. Going back is a great way to gather more experience if you are worried about not making the Div. C team, or if your middle school is stronger than your high school, but if you can make your high school team, it’s certainly a good opportunity to become used to Div. C, challenge yourself, and learn to work with partners you may be working with again the next year.

Also, Umaroth did end up making the Troy team last year but competed with/helped coach Kraemer, helping them make Nats for the first time.
Troy SciOly 2019 - now
Suzanne SciOly 2016 - 2019
Please don’t replay rules next year.
Events this season: Water Quality, Forensics, Ornithology, (some experience in DP)
