5:04 am
we've got our dc correspondent anna wiernicki standing by in washington with more on what we might expect to play out today and a good morning. >>good morning that's right when the senate convenes in just a few hours it will officially mark the start of this impeachment trial but before we even hear oral arguments from either senate leaders agreed to first to be whether or not to even have a trial. >>for the second time the senate is deciding whether or not to convict a former president donald trump is donald trump guilty. of inciting a violent mob. trump is charged with inciting insurrection in a speech to supporters ahead of the deadly right at the u.s. capitol on january 6th we fight like al and if you don't fight like how you're not going to have a country anymore. trump's lawyers say the trial should be dismissed because trump is no longer in office. texas republican senator john cornyn agrees or lot of questions that i hope are going to be addressed a lot of them have to do with the basic.
5:05 am
>>president setting nature of trying person is no longer president the trial is clearly constitutional by every frame of analysis. democrats say they have overwhelming evidence that trump is guilty and senate majority leader chuck schumer says senators need to hear the entire case the president cannot simply resign to avoid accountability for an impeachable offense. nor can they escape judgment by waiting until their final few weeks in office to betray our country. >>and senate leaders agreed to allow for 4 hours of debate today on whether it's constitutional to prosecute the former president and then the senate will take a vote on whether or not to proceed with the trial which is expected to pass live in washington, i'm anna wiernicki back to you. thanks anna. >>it is my desire to get our schools safely open as quickly as we can. >>and that's the other big story this morning kids in california could be one step closer to getting back into the classroom for a majority of students of course it's
5:06 am
been almost a full years since they've had in person instruction. but yesterday governor gavin newsom announced that he and state lawmakers are closer to making a deal on when and how schools can reopen. >>the reopening plan that he put out there was very rigid. almost every school said this is just not feasible. >>for us to do. and then there's his blueprint framework which quite frankly is still an impediment if you're saying you can open until you get your red tier well well most of the state is still in purple tier. >>major sticking point in the negotiations. teachers unions are demanding educators be vaccinated before stepping foot back in the classroom newsom says the state is prioritizing teachers in the next phase of vaccinations an agreement on when in person learning may resume, could be reached sometime next week or this week actually. >>the san francisco unified school district reached a tentative deal with its unions to get the ball get kids and teachers back into classroom.
5:07 am
the agreement does not mean that the reopening soon or that there's a date this deal cover safety protocols and as you james, they have to figure that out before they can open the doors, including. masking social distancing ventilation and testing but the district superintendent says it's the spread of covid that will ultimately determine when schools will reopen. >>it all depends spread of the virus gets down to a level of red are totally done orange. and also it's tied to the availability of vaccines. >>san francisco's currently as we just saw in the state's purple tier as is most of the state. so we're waiting to see if the governor changes that once they are able to reopen. they are going to be of course vaccinating teachers and staff in the city will reopen the plan is in waves beginning with early education elementary schools, teachers and staff at those locations will be vaccinated first since

5:09 am
but the fact that he's still on the scene and the crime unit has just come out it seems like this whole area will be shut down for quite a while this call came in about 2 o'clock this morning. and it's closed off so they really are telling people to try to avoid the area. you know i guess you're going to i'm going to leave that up to our traffic department on how to get around this area, but it is like a good 4 blocks that is closed down right now. >>back to you guys right. thank you yoli and we'll look for updates here throughout the morning time now is 5 '09 we'll take a brief pause still ahead on the kron 4 morning news though san mateo county leaders are working on tackling covid-19 misinformation. >>and the large vaccination equity capital explain and a step in the right direction for youth athletes for the first time in nearly 11 months, one school district is allowing student athletes to do certain types of activities we'll take a closer look and after the break a historic
