Some parents want their kids physically back in classrooms. Should the state of Maine relax rules for physical distancing in schools so that more students can be allowed to return to classrooms full-time?  

Maine’s school district policies have been varied throughout the pandemic, but most have implemented a mix of in-person and at-home learning for students to lower the risk of spreading the coronavirus between kids. Now, parents and some school board members are asking to get kids back in the classroom as failure rates soar and students battle mental health challenges. But only 16% of Maine’s population has been vaccinated by now. Should kids get back in school full-time? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
