Maria Smith started this petition to Chesapeake School Board and

Chesapeake Public Schools is the only public school system among the 10 cities in Hampton Roads with thousands of students and staff holding in-person instruction for every grade level when our Eastern Region, and local cities’, COVID metrics are so high. Roughly 21,000 students and 5,000 staff members in CPS are in the buildings when the City of Chesapeake has the highest positivity rate in Hampton Roads (11.5% as of December 8th).

Please sign this petition to demand that the Chesapeake Public Schools Administration and School Board return all students to virtual learning for the rest of the first semester (ending on Feb 1st).

Furthermore CPS should make a commitment to not allow any kind of in-person instruction (to include “blended learning”) to resume in 2nd semester until the city of Chesapeake has had at least 2 weeks of COVID test positivity rates of <5%.

We also ask that CPS require COVID testing to be completed for anyone who experiences symptoms, or has been exposed to someone with COVID. They should be required to have a negative test before returning to school.

Community COVID cases = school COVID and quarantine cases

We’re all in this together!
