Some good news for schools seeking a waiver! Schools can complete their waiver packages and submit them to the email TK-6Waiver@ochca.com to begin the process.*

When applying for the waiver, the superintendent must submit to the Orange County Health Officer evidence of (1) consultation with labor and parent organizations and (2) publication of the elementary school reopening plans on their website.

*PLEASE NOTE: The State has indicated "problems" with its own CalREDIE database, and the process will be "delayed" until the State can fix its internal problem.

However, to get the ball rolling, please have your school submit the requested documents to our health department. occovid19.ochealthinfo.com/

The current health and medical recommendations are that kids are better off with in-person instruction. Please stay safe for now with physical distancing, facial coverings, and good hygiene.

Do you happen to know why this wouldn’t apply for up to 12th grade?

Why is it just elementary grades ?

What size school must apply? Homeschool families that file the R4 document are technically private schools. So they must file? Or the child cant learn at home since its also the school address?

This is absolutely insane.

Just heard that Chapman University will start online because they have yet to hear back from Governors office about waiver.

Thank you Supervisor Wagner, you are always on it! We appreciate you.

If you need a waiver to open, its probably best not to open. We should have learned this by now.

Thank you!

So the state is holding bus hostage until they can fix their own covid reporting database? Shameful.

What about private schools? Private High Schools to be exact?

Julie McClellan Spielman

Open ALL schools! Parents know best! We should have the choice to send our kids to school.

Thank you!👏🏼

Shame on you! Our children are not experimental fodder! The eyes of history are upon you!

Unconscionable

This is so irresponsible to push early opening.

Dude are you crazy or.... just obviously trying to pander to this odd, small but vocal minority that doesn’t believe in pandemics? You sound ridiculous.

I won't be sending my kids back to school. Orange County is a joke of the world. Until one of you steps up and admits we are in a world wide pandemic and enforces something. It will never open on it's own. Any parent who is begging to have their kids sent back to school. Truly doesn't love their kids. Would you force your kids into a landmine field to see what happens? That's what will happen if you Irresponsibly send them back to school.

Nothing will be considered until the reporting issues (which may be undercounting positives) have been resolved.

🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

Over counting positives is more correct

We appreciate all you do for us. Not many sports can be played with six feet of distance. Get rid of Governor Gruesome and his aunt.

Great news . Freedom of choice

Kellie Barger Noell

Gov Newsom using children to make the lockdown more painful is evil.

Thank you so much for this news!! I’m thankful for even the little bit we get, and can’t wait to have full practices and games back! 😊

One step in the right direction! Thank you Supervisor Don Wagner!

Thank you so much!!!! Great news!

Gini Joy Williams Mike Henjum

Thankful for some movement forward.

Mr. Wagner if only you promoted the OC to wear masks !

This is sad. This is a free country and it should be our choice to have our children playing sports and not dictated by Newsome. Our children are being held hostage!

🥎❤🥎❤

A step in the right direction at least. This whole thing feels so much like a game of tug of war.

They schools and State order will not allow us to begin practice until there is an order from the County Health Officer Dr Chau that allows them to go forward. Please make a request on our behalf to get our kids back on the fields, in the pools and on the courts!!

A great step in the RIGHT direction. NOW lets get them back on campus.

Covidiots

Amy Padilla-Martinez

When are you going to propose opening all schools right now, teaching kids outside under tents?

👏

Children shouldn't be pawns.

Is this a secrete way of catching Covid-19 contaminated people.....???

Thank you

Attn "CRICKETS" i am going to enlighten you and teach you something today: ACADEMIC INTEGRITY is the first step in maintaining National Security!

Attn "Crickets" when Academic Integrity begins to be questioned at a University that University's graduates MUST BE put on a "Do Not Hire List" at the NSA, CIA and FBI. In Fact No Govt entity should hire Graduates from Universities that graduate "Damaged Goods". "Write a Check, Get a Degree" Academic Institutions are a threat to the US Economy and to National Security.

Attn "Crickets" Chapman Administrator Debra Gonda and Professor Fadal Lawandy put MY LIFE in danger when they revealed my identity to a FOREIGN BORN NATIONAL named Fahad "JC" Siddiqi. Who does JC's parents work for? Who does JC's brother work for? Are any of JC's relatives including JC's parents Federal Agents and.or Pakistani Diplomats?

Attn "Crickets" This is the Anonymous Letter i sent to Chapman Administrator Debra Gonda. I did not even include my name, HOWEVER Debra Gonda revealed my identity to an AFFLUENT Foreign Born National aka Debra Gonda put My Life At Risk! DEBRA Please talk to FADAL LAWANDY about JC SIDIQUI possibly cheating or trying to change his test answers and coming up after the fact and asking for more credit Basically we all got out tests back last night….it appeared JC added some additional answers and then came up to FADAL and said “see I did it right you made a mistake” FADAL called BS and said I can tell you changed the answer….there was a prolonged back and forth it was VERY uncomfortable to be sitting in the class while this was going on…there was AT LEAST 7 of us who witnessed this…it continued after class as well My degree is worth less if this behavior is allowed to continue…PLEASE confirm with Fadal as to what transpired

Attn "Crickets" I have given you sound advice a few times: Pick up the phone and call US Federal Judge Philips and/or the Secret Service and ask for guidance. The OC Secret Service know OF ME as i visited their office twice in 2018.

"CRICKETS" The HIGH GROUND i have claimed contains Four Pinnacles. #1) Protecting Wall St from Extortion and Bribery in the Equipment Finance World. As well as protecting THE UNITED STATES from Foreign Interference from entities such as Rabobank dba De Lage Landen #2) Defending The Constitution: Orange County Judge Wendy Lindley and her Husband Defense Attorney Lloyd Freeberg shared Gang Members, Defendants, Bank Accounts and Beds for 10 plus years. I was a Defendant they shared #3) Defending Academic Integrity as Academic Integrity is the First Step in maintaining National Security. #4) Striving to Prevent Tomorrows Rapes/Slave Purchases I am defending the High Ground with My Life and My Freedom. I have declared ALL OUT WAR with my Words!
