About That Visit To NC By Pence & DeVos To Praise Reopening Schools

If you didn’t catch it, VP Mike Pence and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos came to NC to praise a private school’s reopening to in-person instruction.

That visit was at one of the eight campuses of the Thales Schools. All of them reopened in the same way.

But now one of the campuses has reportedly asked its fourth graders to quarantine.

From ABC News:

Fourth graders at a school in North Carolina have been asked to quarantine for 14 days after a student there tested positive for COVID-19.

The school, a Thales Academy in Wake Forest, said it was notified on Monday that the student became infected after having contact with an infected family member.

The student was asymptomatic and was last at school on Friday. Teachers who were exposed also will be quarantined.

Thales Academy, a network of private non-sectarian community schools with eight locations in North Carolina, made the news last week after Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited a classroom and applauded the school for reopening.

Pence and DeVos visited a campus in Apex, not Wake Forest.

And take a look at the video to see who is not wearing a mask.
