Matty . started this petition to San Ramon Valley Unified School District SRVUSD

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is spreading in the United States, especially California. There have been many cases of the virus here in California that are domestic transfer. Schools are dirty, kids often touch each other, and the experts say it could have been spreading undetected in the United States for weeks because the CDC would not test anyone for the virus. 

California has already banned gatherings of over 250 people. So why are schools open? So many people are packed into tight spaces which makes the virus so happy. But not us. Who wants their kids to go to school when they are scared they will catch an infectious disease? Kids should be happy at school - not worried. The current situation with the coronavirus is causing kids to be scared. This is not just the flu. This is a PANDEMIC. Although the risk for kids to die is low, it is very likely that when students get it, it will spread to their parents, and then the elderly (those at the most risk) will get it.

There are already many cases in Contra Costa County and it’s still growing. 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) and neighboring districts MUST cancel class for the safety of students. The districts should not care about money. The districts should care more about student safety. We should just switch to online classes like how the Northshore School District near Seattle has done. We can do it too. 

 

Share this petition with your friends. Maybe post it to Nextdoor. Maybe hang up signs in your community. Do what you can to make this a reality. Although closing schools is not the solution, it is one solution to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
