Florida school district video for reopening called ‘apocalyptic’

A school district in Florida is facing a lot of online pushback for a promotional video it shared last week informing the community about what reopening its schools will look like. In fact, the video from the Manatee County School District drew widespread ridicule and horror across the country after a parent who lives in a nearby town shared the video to TikTok, where it’s since gone viral. In her video, Tiffany Jenkins, who has three young kids, called it “apocalyptic” and like “an M. Night. Shyamalan movie.”

… The video that the school district first shared on its Facebook page shows teachers in shields, masks, and lab coats, students in masks, and various ways they’ll be distanced in the classroom and at lunch.

… One parent of a child enrolled in Manatee County’s school district told BuzzFeed News she was “really sad” upon watching it and doesn’t believe the reopening plan is “realistic.”
