8:01 am
>> instead of waiting until thursday, this comes after teachers claim they ran out of covid tests over the weekend. kron 4. sarah stinson live for us in san francisco to explain morning sarah. >> on this monday morning as we head into another school week, teachers in san francisco, some of them not feeling comfortable in the classroom with specials in san francisco teachers union. it has not reach an agreement with the school district on covid safety protocols over the weekend. this is what we're hearing from the teachers union. take a look at this tweet. they said we received many reports today that the district ran out of covid tests. educators are being placed in impossible situations. the district needs to prioritize fine and finalizing an agreement around masks, testing and sick leave. now our students, families and staff can't wait till thursday or later because remember on thursday. >> was the day set to meet with the teachers union and the district again at the
8:02 am
negotiating and bargaining table. i just heard back from the school district saying that they have made reliable testing regularly available for students and staff since last spring since last sunday. they said that the district says they've distributed nearly 58,000 tests at their different testing locations. and they said we are and have been working closely with the san francisco public health department implementing protocols that they recommend. now. let's hear what what the teachers union want, what they want from the district. they want the 10 paid sick days for all covid-related reasons. but the district came back offering 5 days. the teachers want the district to provide masks for students and employees. each day the district says we have been providing masks will continue to do that for employees, but they're not so fine them for students that they're also working on getting the kn 95 mask. so too, the district in union did agree that weekly covid testing needs to be at
8:03 am
every district site. and as you just heard from the district, they have been working hard, getting those color rapid test out to all of the different students and staff that needed. and so they have a a >> testing site actually open at the district office over the weekend saturday and sunday. now i've i've just heard back in the district still waiting to hear from the teachers union about how they feel. the question remains. one of the going to reach an agreement. will it be on the day they designated thursday or could it happen sooner continue to follow the latest on this for now. live in san francisco. sarah stinson, back to you. ok, thank you very much, sara. >> 8, 0, 3, on the clock. another big story that we're following this morning. students in milpitas will have the option now returning to virtual learning this week. but school will also be open for in-person learning as well. you can be a little confusing kron four's will tran is standing by live in milpitas to explain. will. >> any other time upi, this high school would be crawling
8:04 am
with people. but look at this. it is practically empty, a ghost town as it seems like a lot of parents are choosing. they have that option. they are choosing to keep their kids at home. look at the parking lot. plenty of spaces. you might see one or 2 looks like an administrator showing up right now. but nothing full force like what we saw last week. the reason being heading into the weekend, the milpitas unified school district. they're offering parents and students the choice to either do it at home or here on campus. but it looks like a lot of people are choosing to do at home. here is henry and the cota. let's start with you. you walk inside the classrooms, the cota. how did they look like this morning? well, today, i just need to turn a macomb because it's broken and i don't know why. >> i really do not know where to go, but there is some cars that look like they're lost here and i don't know what to do with him. so
8:05 am
>> normally you would see people inside the classrooms are a lot of teachers, your whole. but just a kid tears like really crowded looks like it looks like a ghost town. no doubt. what do you think about your child? you do have the option of being here. there are some students and teachers on campus today. >> well, i think taking a week of keep a lot of these kids safe. issues of having cases of covid or tested positive. you know, but i don't really know what's going to happen. you know? taking it by day and see what the it's a very fluid situation. would you rather be? >> in class right now in class or at home, learning. so it's like a whole bunch of things are going crazy right now. will the covid cases and stuff? i think it's good to stay at home and not be at school. i hope i hopefully it's just for a week because i don't want what happened last year, too. that is the plan for a week. the milpitas
8:06 am
unified school district actually going into the weekend. there was some confusion. >> that all the classes will be online. then they decided over the weekend that to have the hybrid. you can see here is another student being dropped off. but it looks like a lot of people are choosing option b, meaning staying at home and distance learning. >> right. thank you very much. well, it is 8, 0, 6, the hayward unified school district, by the way, going to remote learning for one week, starting today after 117 staff members tested positive for covid in the last few days. so the district has become so understaffed that it's forced them to move to online, learning the district plans to have students back for in-person instruction next tuesday, january 18th. now school leaders are making an exception for families without wifi or child care. those students are going to be allowed to go to some of physical campuses to continue their learning virtually from there. >> but again, this is only in situations where it's
8:07 am
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 instruction for our students. >> the school district public information officer says that board members are going to regroup this coming friday and they'll decide then whether students to come back to the classroom on january 18th or potentially extend the remote learning timeline. so we'll see what they decide. meanwhile, the oakland unified school district is planning on a regular school day today with the district saying that it is meeting demands from students who have had increased covid protocols wolf in requesting that they have increased covid-19 protocols and supplies on hand to keep them safe. the district responded to a growing petition by the students who
8:08 am
say they actually plan to skip in-person classes if the district didn't provide them with the supplies, hundreds of students have already signed that petition, which gives the district until january 17th to meet their demands. some students claim there's a lack of availability when it comes to 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 that that has for everyone on campus and more outdoor spaces to eat safely when it rains. over at the 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 sickout to call attention to work. well, safety concerns as well over the omicron variant. meanwhile, parents in the dublin unified school district are also pushing for a return to distance learning as well. so far more than 2300 people have signed a petition calling on the district to move back to virtual learning with some
8:09 am
saying that they're alarmed by the rise of covid cases and they're worried about this omicron variant on campus. double unified superintendent, though, says they can't extend the winter break and the current state rules don't allow them to move the district to online learning. >> we can go district-wide virtual learning because the legislature, the governor does not give us permission to do that like 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 that majority of our parents want their kids in school. >> and so the district says it will continue with in-person learning today. we'll see if that changes going forward. but at the moment, they say that's all they can do elsewhere in the east bay, the west contra costa county school district is canceling classes for today because a
8:10 am
large number of staff absences and an increased number of covid cases has gripped the school district. so the district closed all the schools last friday to give them a chance to clean and sanitize every single campus. the district is also requiring employees and students to take covid tests today with the results being submitted before returning to in-person learning all the schools are expected to resume classes tomorrow. we'll have much more on covid and schools throughout the morning. but in the meantime, let's talk sports. we can't ignore the fact that the warriors are celebrating right now. not only a win, but the fact that klay thompson was back in great form to help the team secure another win in front of a hometown crowd. what, 2 and a half years now of rehab for that torn acl and ruptured achilles tendon. and he was welcome back a roaring ovation from the fans at the chase center and his return. it was a great one for the warriors as they host the cavaliers because it was a win with clay scoring 17 points that
8:11 am
included 3, 3 pointers in 19 minutes of play. fellow splash brother steph curry also had a bit of the energy flowing through him as well. he scored 28. >> and in the end, it was the warriors with the victory. 96 to 82 over the cavs. and here is reaction from the man of the hour. klay thompson himself. >> 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. >> we're going to see more of clay tomorrow night as the warriors are on the road facing the memphis grizzlies. tipoff for that game is at 05:00pm. and we're also talking about the niners this morning, too, because they're back in the playoffs. they secure a wild-card spot after beating the rams in over time. this one was a thriller down in la with the niners. >> getting off to a rough start. but they overcame a 17 point deficit to send the game into overtime. and in the end, the niners marched down the field and broke the tie with a
8:12 am
field goal. the niners won again in overtime by intercepting a pass by matt stafford. niners getting the 6 so they're back in the playoffs for the first time since the super bowl of 2019. >> just so proud of everybody in that locker room they never saw fine and they had to its 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. >> yeah, they did dominating the 2nd half. the niners with this wind will now face the dallas cowboys this coming sunday afternoon for the wild-card game kickoff. we'll be at one 30 and the raiders also celebrating the fact that they're in the playoffs as well. they beat the chargers in overtime in las vegas. >> so both teams going into overtime. let's get to the highlights. we have the raiders. they were leading with 5 seconds to go in the 4th quarter. but the chargers scored a touchdown to send the
8:13 am
game into overtime. and after a bit of back and forth in that extra quarter, it was derek carr that got the ball in the field goal range. and with that successful field goal, a 47 yard attempt, by the way, they get the win. so the raiders now back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016 raiders are the 5th seed. they'll face the fourth-seeded cincinnati bengals. this coming saturday kickoff at one 30 pm. and coming up the next half hour, we're going to have a much more in-depth breakdown of all the highlights from this raiders game from the niners game and also the warriors to with clays come back. so stay tuned for that. we'll take a break here at 8.13, coming up ahead on the kron. 4 morning news. tensions continue to rise between the u.s. a%d russia were going to tell you what. >> the u.s. says will happen if russia invades ukraine. and the covid case surge is causing another surge of 911. calls why it's causing problems for dispatchers. we'll be right.
