This post offers a number of different scenarios for reopening school in the fall (or later) but in the end offers this practical advice: "Prepare for a full year of 100 percent distance learning... you’re going to be better off if you have shifted a good part of your instruction into an online format. Once it’s there, you can still use it in a face-to-face setting." Also, "If you happen to be working in a district where expectations are far beyond reality, push back." There's a lot more in this article, and if you're a teacher looking forward with some apprehension, it maps out the territory pretty well.
