My heart is broken after watching my children suffer emotionally and academically. If restaurants are open why aren’t our schools? Our children deserve this opportunity and families deserve a choice.

AAPS can bring kids back safely to school, at least in hybrid form, with a science-based and methodical plan. Kids are suffering educationally in terms of their mental health with more than one year of virtual school and counting.

My kiddo has been robbed of his entire Kindergarten year - had we known they would stay all virtual, we would have left the district and just re-enrolled for Kindergarten next year. Now we're almost done with the school year and my choices boil down to pull him out and try again next year or pull him out and homeschool him while I'm also trying to work.

My children deserve a FAPE, and my son needs to receive the services outlined in his IEP. Virtual school leaves kids behind. It’s time to listen to experts and science—face to face school can be done safely for those who choose it.

We have PPEs. We have plexiglass barriers. We can go to full time in person schooling immediately. Many districts all around us have done it safely. Teachers who are too scared can stay home. But teachers who are willing to teach our children should be allowed to do so. I’m a surgeon. I took care of patients throughout the pandemic, including at Beaumont and DMC. Front line has to mean something. And professional obligation has to mean something. Teachers have a professional obligation to do what’s best for children’s education and well being. And that means in person schooling. There’s no reason or excuse not to. What if the pandemic continues for another 3 years with genetic variants and the like, some not covered by current vaccines? Are we going to continue virtual schooling in AA for 3 more years?

Thanks for adding your voice.

Because data does not support the fallacy that in person teaching is dangerous for teachers. Persistent remote schooling however has already manifested harm.
