“It actually makes me feel less safe in the two- to three-day model than I would have when, as the experts call it, they would’ve stayed in a cohort of kids that are together in the same class,” Messer said.


CPS Superintendent Laura Mitchell admits at this point there’s no set-in-stone option for daycare.
