6:03 am
going to be a mix of feelings. both excitement and apprehension, too. >> absolutely. we don't expect everybody to come back because distance learning is still an option. they will start school in 2 hours from now. but there's a lot of fear, james, because the oakland unified school district, they are not requiring that their staff members prove that they are vaccinated or if they're not proving that they're vaccinated that they will have to undergo weekly tests and a lot of parents are concerned about that because teachers and staff members could be passing around the delta variant to their children, which is why there's a lot of controversy with his opening, but a lot of dignitaries will be here to try to tamp down some of that concern and we're talking the oakland unified school district superintendent will be here. the state superintendent and mayor libby schaff. so we will interview them but we do know they are assuring that the parents assuring the parents that the

6:07 am
wildfire in state history. that's why the map a little bit. it's still further to the north there it is out nearly a gallon or again, this is just east of both chico and red bluff. and you can see it has burned a large swath right around lake alan or this morning, the town of chester to the north and to the south. all these dots. these icons that you see represent the status of various homes that first responders have visited in black. it means they're not in danger. read, however, means that they have suffered a catastrophic damage. in fact, many cases burned to the ground and then you have various colors in between that indicate levels of damage. a lot of properties have been damaged and a lot of ground has been scorched right now. like i said, the second largest wildfire now in state history saga has a closer look at the damage. >> the highly active dixie fires prompting new evacuations east of lake outman or leaving those who stayed behind with nothing to do. but watch. >> the wind. the wind just kills you. >> don't. you are of chester state behind as his wife and

6:11 am
built around the 1940's and it wasn't only a place for the firefighters of the indian valley fire rescue to meet. it was a place where community members new to come each month and enjoy a meal with those firefighters. it's one of the anchors to a community. if you don't have those those core building. >> and it was a curse. nobody wants. nobody. people tend to go go different places. and now without their fire station firefighters will respond to emergencies from their own homes in the important thing is that this really severely hampers our efforts to be able to protect and serve. >> the community. sorry so it's it's more frustrating than anything. hopefully we can. remedy that. >> in greensville. but we wish attics fox 40 news. >> coming up next on the kron 4 morning news, a fire breaks

6:16 am
front, really. but it was enough to help back in clean out the air mass. so not as hazy today might be still somewhat the race, but helping cool us off just a touch. but into the future. high pressure will be building. so is another heat spike coming our way towards the end of the week. also a little monsoon is sneaking in here. the first little wade gets here about tuesday. see some cloud cover off to the sierra really about tuesday. we'll see some develop right up in here. some scattered showers but temperatures some thunder showers. but towards wednesday night into thursday for our. maybe some scattered clouds kind of worry about that. again. maybe some dry lightning strikes. that's the only thing that kind of like, look out for that all comes together. there's a cell phone. the distance. still that fog mostly sunny today after we shake the fog off mild 70's cover you for the bay warm inland. a few 90's early in the week. tuesday and then wednesday night there's that monsoon whisper. coming up our way mid-nineties hold well inland. but then they're going to be popping to near 100. the days to look out for thursday and friday, maybe saturday. but it will probably

6:36 am
>> 6.35 the other big story that we're following this morning is the fact that covid is on the minds of parents across the bay area well, there are obviously concerns with students coming back to the classroom for in-person learning that we could see the transmission rates begin to climb. yeah. been talking to a lot of parents and students there some apprehension. >> this morning after 17 months of being home. oakland students are going to head back to the classroom that have to wear mask and also going to have to follow covid protocols. will trend actually on the story for us. joining us once again live from oak elementary out in oakland. good morning. well. >> good morning, james. the rain and 90 minutes from now, the kids will be back inside the classrooms. in fact, they open up the gate about 5 minutes ago you talked about protocols. for many parents not enough protocols in place because they're still fearful of covida 9 and the de variant and they say the unified school district not doing enough to make sure that their kids are safe. one of the things that they're
6:37 am
frustrated about is open unified school district there, not requiring that their staff members, which of course includes the teachers show proof of vaccination. and if they don't do that and they will have to undergo weekly or biweekly covid-19 tests. that's not some of the other school districts in the bay area in california who are doing that. not happening at oakland unified school district. the school district does say that they are having well-ventilated classroom set the kids will be socially distance inside the classrooms. and you talked about they will be required to wear their masks at all times. unless, of course, the drinking or eating, but we got a chance to track down a board member over the weekend. he says the school district can and should do more. >> it is a bare minimum safety requirement to have covid testing offered at all. of our schools i've introduced a resolution which will be
6:38 am
coming at wednesday. school board here in oakland to call for weekly testing and what i want us to guard against as much as we can is to ensure that our schools don't become the transmission site for this deadly virus. >> here's the thing, though. even though they are back inside the classrooms today. rain and james, they are providing distance learning. if parents are still fearful about that. but this is a big day for the city of oakland and for many parents, let's face it. a lot of parents rely on the school district for them to get the kids so they can go to work and provide for their families. so that's another component to what many parents are happy about that. this is such a big day that we're here specifically because we do know in 90 minutes from now, the oakland unified school district superintendent. that person will be here. the state superintendent will be here as well. joined by board members. and of course, mayor libby
