Arizona Teachers started this petition to Arizona Governor and

This petition is to recommend to the Arizona governor to close all schools. There is not reason to make districts make this decision on their own. We are causing a divide in our state and nation. We should all close or we should all open. There should be no difference. Having teachers, staff or parents make this decision will only cause more a divide in the communities. We are protecting our staff, students, parents and community. Students should stay home for a week or two while we ride out this epidemic. This is a global epidemic and has been announced by the governor, CDC, President and WHO. We do not need to lose anymore family members, friends or colleagues to a virus that we can prevent from spreading. Our kids may not get the worst of it but their older family members will. Whether it be a hoax or serious, we should be safer than sorry. Many of us think that we can recover from this but we should do so with the least amount of casualties and hospitalizations as possible. Please sign this petition for us to come together as a state to make a decision together to close schools for two weeks to ride out this virus and stop the spread.
