Virginia parent knocks district's 'crazy' reopening policy: 'How long until our kids are able to learn?'
Fairfax County, Virginia parent expresses frustration at school district’s restrictions for re-opening
Amber Condry, mother of elementary school-aged children, joins Laura Ingraham with insight on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
Fairfax County, Va. mom Amber Condry told "The Ingraham Angle" Tuesday that she was "very frustrated" with the local school district's reopening plan amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"I'm just saddened that it doesn't seem like there's a push to get kids back in school," Condry, whose children are in elementary school, told host Laura Ingraham. "Because there's constantly these changes sent down by the governor where we have to abide by some new rule and then they're going to have to change their whole game plan again.
"It just seems like, are we even going to open? And how long until our kids are able to learn?"

Ingraham outlined the choice given each Fairfax County parent in her "Angle" monologue last month.
"Families are given two options: Enrolling their kids in 100 percent online classes four days per week or in-person classes for just two days a week," Ingraham said at the time. "Now, with the latter option, kids will have to remain six feet apart at all times, [with] daily health screenings and regular hand-washing and sanitizing."
On Tuesday, Ingraham and her guest dismissed the idea that children would be able to quickly acclimate to wearing a mask for an entire school day.
"My kids can't even keep it on for five minutes where we're dodging in and out of things if we have to wear it," Condry said. "I mean, honestly, it just makes me so sad. I feel like children are suffering because of all of these crazy policies."

Condry said the restrictions set by Fairfax County Public Schools had forced her to choose a third option.
"I'm just not comfortable with my kids not being able to play with other children and touch them and have somebody refereeing them all the time," she said. "So I just decided we're gonna do a homeschool co-op.
"They can be with other kids," Condry added. "We can take responsibility for ourselves. We can say, 'If my kid is sick, I'm not going to send them.' It doesn't have to be some government-mandated craziness."
