Joann Claspill started this petition to Board of Trustees and Dr. Melton

Face to face instruction is ideal and a safe return to face to face would be amazing. The conditions to return to 5 days face to face have changed quite a bit since parents were first presented with their instructional model options. One being hybrid with an eventual safe return to face to face and FIVE. Many families chose hybrid based on the initial CDC guidelines that are no longer being used. 

Now that face to face 5 days is upon us, we would like the board to consider allowing families that want face to face when safe to do so, thus helping prevent community spread, transmission from asymptomatic carriers to at risk family members, and assisting with social distancing in school among other things. 

This petition requests that the Board of Trustees and Dr. Melton allow live streaming classes to count towards attendance as "virtually present", much like they already do when students are quarantined 

We see this proposal as inclusive of all family needs. It is a method already being utilized for students in quarantine. 

This proposal asks that teachers live stream their classes. Assignments would already be in Google classroom and students may submit questions via email, just as they did on hybrid/virtual days. This alleviates any burdens on teachers as it is not teaching to separate models of instruction.
