7:00 am
all right, john, thank you very much. let's get to the news this morning in our top stories. fact that san francisco teachers union is demanding the district begin negotiations on covid protocols. now instead of waiting until thursday and all this comes after the teachers claim they ran out of covid tests over the weekend. kron 4 sarah stinson live in san francisco to explain. good morning, sarah. >> james, as you know, we've been covering this in the last week because the teachers union in san francisco, they're frustrated with the san francisco unified school district not coming to a covid safety precaution agreement. they really want this wrapped up as they again head into another school week demanding this gets done as soon as possible because they want to feel comfortable as they teach in-person. meanwhile, we still have hundreds of teachers still sick to see just how many this morning. for now, take a look at this tweet that we saw happening yesterday. it was from the teachers union
7:01 am
saying we've received many reports the san francisco unified school district ran out of covid test. educators are being placed in impossible situations. the district needs to prioritize finalizing an agreement around mass testing and sick leave. now our students, families and staff can't wait till thursday or later. that was tweeted out by the teachers union, the district superintendent posted photos twitter as well showing a testing site opened over the weekend at the district office on franklin street. the district also tweeted saying last week they delivered 46,000 color covid tests. >> 2 schools, which is what the teachers have been wanting. this is a shipment from the state on thursday. the district is set to meet with the teachers union again to negotiate at the bargaining table. the union saying that is far too late. teachers have to continue working now and need that agreement. the teachers union is asking for this. remember 10 paid sick days for all covid-related reasons. but the district came
7:02 am
back offering 5 days. the teachers want the district to provide mask for every student and employee every day. but the district says they have been providing masks and will continue to do that. but for employees only and they've definitely been trying to get that kn 95 mask out as well. the district and the union have agreed weekly covid testing needs to occur in every district site for all students and staff. so that has been happening. but the question is, have they been running out of tests? the union says that teachers have been struggling to get their hands on these tests and they are worried heading into the school week. they want all of this finalized because again, they do have to continue on teaching the students in the conditions of this surge of of omicron cases. so stand by a lot more to learn about this. will the districts say we can meet sooner than thursday or will teachers have to wait for now? reporting live in san francisco. sarah stinson, back to you. all right. we shall see. thank you very much, sara. >> meanwhile, another big story that we're following this morning. students in milpitas will now have the
7:03 am
option of returning to virtual learning this week. this is schools are also open for in-person learning as well. crawford's will trend live for us in milpitas with more on what they're doing will to trying to ease the concerns of parents and students. as we're in the middle of the spike. >> james, they were trying to ease some of the fears, but instead heading into the weekend, especially yesterday they actually ramped up the confusion because a lot of parents there were told on friday heading into the weekend that now classes will be moved online. but classes will you'll have the option in about 90 minutes or so to come to any school pitas that your child goes to, of course, in-person learning face to face with the teachers or the option of online learning. so it's almost like going back to 2019 or early 2020 because of omicron variant continues. this sweep across the country. people coming down with covid-19 cases and that is why they're doing this. but james, i got to tell you, heading
7:04 am
into the weekend, there was no in person face to face option. there were going to do this definitely for this entire week, possibly into next week as well. but they consulted and we're talking the administrators with the milpitas unified school district. they consulted with health officials and they decided that, yes, they can do that. hybrid. if you're want you, if you want your child to do online, learning you have to check your e-mail. supposedly you have to let the school district know that that is something that you are looking to go into or you can come to the school and talk to the principal, james, just to have an extra layer of all this. there are rumors that possibly they might not be enough teachers to staff in person learning either because they have covid-19 or some schools are sums teachers, i should say, might even stage a sick out at this school district because they are fearful that the school, a school district, the unified school not doing enough to make sure that they and the students are safe. so a very complicated issue. of plenty
7:05 am
of moving parts. milpitas is no different than many other school districts in the bay area. we do know that. hey, where james, just a few cities north of this location, they are doing online, learning back to you. >> interesting. all right. thank you. will in just north of that in oakland, the oakland unified school district is planning on a regular school day today. so different districts are taking different approaches. the oakland unified school district says it's meeting the demands from students to have increased covid-19 protocols and supplies to keep them safe. the district responded to a growing petition by students who plan on skipping in-person classes. if the district didn't provide these covid safety supplies, hundreds of students have already signed the petition which gives the district a january 17th deadline to meet their demands to just 7 days from now, some students claim there's a lack a la bill ity of testing and other resources. >> we are demanding kn 95 masks for all the students because not easily accessible to them twice a week pcr and
7:06 am
rapid tests for everyone on campus and more outdoor spaces to eat safely when it rains. over district does not want to give it to us. we demand a shift. those 2, i'm ready. >> last friday, more than 500 teachers took part in a sick out and they called for called out from work over covid safety concerns as well. and then over in dublin, parents in the dublin unified school district are also pushing for a return to distance learning so far more than 2300 people have signed a petition calling on the district to move back to virtual learning some saying that they are alarmed by the rise of covid cases and they're worried about the omicron variant on campus, dublin unified superintendent says they cannot extend the winter break and that the current state rules do not allow the entire school district to move to on time. learn on to online learning. so they're sort of stuck. >> we can go district-wide virtual learning because the
7:07 am
legislature, the governor does not give us permission to do that like to done in the past with the executive order from the governor. and so we would have to have 100%. parents sign waiver in order for us to receive our ada from the state. and we know majority of our parents want their kids in school. >> well, the district will continue with in-person learning today. we'll see if that changes going forward. meanwhile, elsewhere in the east bay, the west contra costa county school district is canceling classes for today. this is because a large number of staff absences and an increasing number of covid cases are being discovered in that school district. the district closed all of the schools last friday to clean and sanitize the facilities. the district is also requiring employees and students to take covid tests today and report those results before returning to in-person learning all of the schools, except they're expected to resume classes tomorrow. we'll see if that
7:08 am
actually happens. meanwhile, as will mentioned moment ago, the hayward unified school district is going to remote learning for at least one week. and that begins today. this after 117 staff members tested positive for covid-19 in the past few days, the district has become so understaffed, but it forced them to move to online learning the district plans to have students back for in-person instruction next tuesday will be on january. 18th. school leaders are making an exception for the families without wifi or childcare. those students are going to be allowed to at least a 10, some physical campuses so they can continue their virtual learning. there. >> but again, this is only in situations where it's absolutely absolutely necessary for a family if we implement virtual learning, we can't allow those staff who might be in quarantine might be awaiting test results to feel ok and choose to do the virtual learning from home. that allows us to really increase the number of staff we have available for
7:09 am
instruction for our students. >> now, the school district's public information officer says that board members are going to regroup this upcoming friday and they'll decide when students should come back to the classroom, whether that's going to be january 18th or if they're going to extend the remote learning timeline. we'll just have to wait and see. all right. let's turn the corner here. talk about the warriors. they have a lot to celebrate. klay thompson was back on the court. the help the team secure another win in front of the hometown crowd 2 and a half years of rehabbing that torn acl and ruptured achilles tendon and boy, look like he has missed a beat. clay obviously. welcome back to the chase center by a roar of the crowd. his return was a success as the warriors host of the cavaliers, he scored 17 points on the night making 3, 3 pointers in 19 minutes of game time. >> fellow splash brother steph curry was feeling the energy. the crowd to he scored 28 points. and in the end it was the warriors with the win over
7:10 am
the cavs. 96 to 82. and here he is the man of the hour. klay thompson react it. >> was a very special moments. i'll never forget on their feet that this never forget the fans gave us especially myself and she was fun. >> well, we're going to see more of clay tomorrow night when the warriors go on the road to play the memphis grizzlies. tipoff is at 05:00pm. and how about them niners way to come back and make it to the playoffs. now securing that wild card spot after beating the rams in over time. this one was a thriller in la the niners getting off to a rough start, but they overcame a 17 point deficit again taking the game to overtime. and in the end, the niners march down the field. >> and broke the tie with a field goal. niners winning in overtime bite intercepting a pass by matt stafford. so niners getting the 6 seed and they're back in the playoffs for the first time since their super bowl run back in 2019.
7:11 am
>> just so proud of everybody in that locker room they never saw fine and they had to. that's really good team. i'm just so proud of the guys is kind of down 17 to 0, then go down and get 3 points and >> you know, it's and co-head agree misses in the locker room. you know, go out there and just play the ball that we play in. we showed up in the 2nd half. >> and it played journey's don't stop believin the niners going to be facing the dallas cowboys this sunday afternoon for the wild card game kickoff. is it one 30? >> and the raiders also making the playoffs as well, beating the chargers in overtime in las vegas. so let's get to the highlights here. the raiders leading with 5 seconds to go in the 4th quarter. but chargers touchdown sent this game into overtime and after going back and forth in the extra quarter was derek carr getting the ball in field goal range kicker. daniel carlson carlson making that 47 yard field goal for the win raiders. now back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016 raiders are the 5th
