What don’t you get about science? Why are you constantly stirring up controversy? Look at all of the Southeast region...the vast majority are going virtual for the safety of the children and staff. If you are so hot to trot about opening schools, why don’t you sign up to sub? Do you think this virus is a “hoax”? Let me guess...Trumper? Yeah, I thought so. Republican Party soon to be known as the dinosaurs of the US. Extinct. #ByeVictoria

Here is the science, straight from the CDC: The best available evidence indicates that COVID-19 poses relatively low risks to school-aged children. Children appear to be at lower risk for contracting COVID-19 compared to adults. To put this in perspective, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of July 17, 2020, the United States reported that children and adolescents under 18 years old account for under 7 percent of COVID-19 cases and less than 0.1 percent of COVID-19-related deaths. Although relatively rare, flu-related deaths in children occur every year. From 2004-2005 to 2018-2019, flu-related deaths in children reported to CDC during regular flu seasons ranged from 37 to 187 deaths. During the H1N1pandemic (April 15, 2009 to October 2, 2010), 358 pediatric deaths were reported to CDC. So far in this pandemic, deaths of children are less than in each of the last five flu seasons, with only 64.† Additionally, some children with certain underlying medical conditions, however, are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.*

As a member of our School Board you are entrusted to information in advance of meetings, I’m disappointed to see you are abusing your role and sharing this information. By your own admission this is a “piece” of the data and I have concerns as both an employee and parent of VBCPS to the validity of this information. I hope others will wait to see the complete picture presented on Tuesday night by Dr. Spence and his team before reacting.

I received this information directly from Dr Spence. This is public information that I believe the public should have. I also believe the Board and the public should have access to all of the data in advance of the meeting.

YOU, as a member of the School Board, received this information that will be made public in the near future. This information is misleading and I look forward to seeing the ALL the data when it is made public. I am confident if Dr. Spence intended for staff, parents, and the community to see this today then he would have shared it with us.

Why would not want to see this information?! Why is it an abuse of power for someone who represents US, is supposed to fight for our children, is keeping us informed? The science says go back to school—CDC and AAP. Do you really prefer to stick your head in the sand? I cannot believe that to be true. Thank you Vicky! She’s one of the few on that board that do as the majority of families want for the kids.

This is an aggregate data set. Will the raw data set be made public so those of us that wish to perform our own analysis can? There's nothing here to validate the data at all. Point is, BUT lets ignore the fact this virus is only second to tuberculosis (TB) in daily deaths and right now is killing more people globally on a daily basis than HIV/AIDS and Influenza combined. https://informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/covid-19-coronavirus-infographic-datapack/

I certainly appreciate you sharing the data from the survey. It was totally lacking from the supposedly data-driven plan presented by Dr Spence.

Victoria Manning is a fierce and bold leader who is not afraid to speak up for what she believes in or for her constituents. Why so much anger towards her in these posts? It seems you are getting what you want so if she shows data we should have received days ago like the other school systems' surveys, she gets attacked? Have you ever watched her in a board meeting? She is polite and assertive. She isn't throwing a tantrum because someone differs in opinion. The AAP, CDC etc. say go back. In terms of community transmission, the more we test (as even the governor has stated numerous times) the more positive the cases. Are your kids going to bars and protests? Mine aren't. Are you? I'm not, yet punished we continue to be. I could list many reasons why it is probable that our cases have gone up, but I encourage you to look at the data, do the calculations, refer to reliable, evidenced based research on all aspects of public health risks to the never ending lock-down and be fully informed before judging someone else. I have no problem if you want to stay home. It is your choice. Others think differently and we need Victoria's voice and more like hers to even out the board and level the playing field. Voting Victoria all day long! Thank you Ms. Manning!

Thank you so much Ann for your kind words!

My mom is a school teacher in Virginia Beach and has been for a long time. I feel like you are not worried at all about how this decision impacts the teachers, or the students that live with grandparents. The disease spreads, (lets not worry about how it spreads)
