I have been watching the response of Bellevue School District to COVID-19 outbreak at bsd405.org. I respect their decision to stick to the advice from Public Health. However, it tells me that an action would only be taken in the event there is an outbreak. As a parent and as a well-wisher for the upcoming generation, I believe the budding generation should be protected from this virus and should not be made vulnerable to this by getting them to face larger groups on a regular basis in a school setup.

BSD authorities- Are there ways to adopt online teaching on the lines of what NSD had adopted that would protect our kids? Although going by statistics, younger kids are believed to recover faster, for one most schools that are closed today wouldn't have done so if this was true in its entirety and for two, no one could guarantee that the kids are totally resilient to this as the medical officials and virologists are yet to understand this novel coronavirus holistically. Students with pre-existing underlying conditions are among the lot too.

Decision to close BSD schools, open up online learning options and protect the students will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much in advance!
