Jynaia Badie started this petition to Butte County office of Education.

March 20, 2020, the governor of California decided that it was in the states best interest of shutting down schools. While the COVID-19 virus was not understood and this must be the best way to handle things. Since that date, children have had to work hard learning a new style of learning. Teachers and School Administrators have also have to accommodate and adapt to this lock down. Teacher must work on computers to teach children and kids must do their work without teacher contact. In all still doing the work. Parents have had to adapt to screen time with kids and being a home school teacher! This lockdown is not a vacation. There is not a carefree moment in this! The stress everyone is under due to the COVID-19 virus is unmeasurable. The state would like for us to potentially send our kids and school staff back to school in July. Teachers and Families should not give up their summers due to a virus! We had no choice in the lockdown and now the state would like to strip us of more precious time with our children and families! We have already had to be on lockdown in our homes, we all deserve a vacation. Our lives need some sense of normalcy, and taking more time away is just wrong!  As children need normalcy and time to acclimate to the devastating changes that have been greatly effected their lives, it would be an enormous penalty and overstep to take away their normal summer. Our children have been stripped of so much with this lockdown: hands on education, socializing with friends, building relationships, playing at parks, sports, dances, proms, field trips, graduations, childhood memories that can not be recreated! Teachers and Administrators have not stopped giving their time, preparation of class work, finding clever ways to make online learning fun. They too need a break, which is very much deserved! Their families deserve their normal summer break, a time for just them. School staff are the backbones of educating future leaders their time needs to be valued as they give so much of themselves on a daily basis. We have a government that has set vacations and the country seen them take one during this COVID-19 outbreak. Kids, school Staff and their families should be treated equal to congress: LET THEM HAVE THEIR RIGHTFUL BREAK! We must stand united and let our voices be heard! United We Stand for our families and our school staff! Please say No to school in July!
