Luckily, school aged kids and young adults are not particularly susceptible to this disease. Some older teachers might be however. We as a society seem to be over-reacting. Go about your day, and do everybody a favor and self-quarantine if you get sick. No need to close schools if people follow simple rules (which they probably won't.)

It can be done safely in locations with moderate climate. Plenty of natural ventilation is the key. The doors and windows should be wide open and no HVAC. Third world countries don't have much HVAC and the third world infection rates are 50 to 1500 times lower than all the developed and affluent countries. Vietnam, I believe, enforces natural ventilation and they have 1800 times lower infection rates and zero deaths. Even their hospitals have open windows. The experts have missed the fact that the major transmission mode is airborne. People emit virus when they speak or perhaps even breathe. Masks are still advised but can be worn below the nose. Goggle are advised because floating virus if any, can enter through the eye. Other common sense measures should be still practiced to avoid contact transmission.

it's good that those age groups are better able to withstand infections of Covid-19. But they can certainly carry it home to infect older relatives and others in their neighborhoods. It's not too much to expect younger people to take precautions to protect their grandparent's health. For them to go about their day ignoring social distancing and not wearing masks is very selfish.
