I had seen a petition earlier to cancel schools in CCSD, however this is a terrible idea.

More than half of all medical workers have school-aged children. Many of you are aware that we are already lacking medical workers, so if school is canceled and half of our medical workers have to stay home, there will be fewer people to try to help those with COVID-19.

Many families also cannot afford to have to take care of their children. In many places, even in my own school, there are children who have families that cannot afford even a computer, so they cannot find time to take care of their children while working.

For students, who just don't like school, there's a reason for you too. While you may be excited about not having to go to school, we are already nearing the end of the school year currently, so you will not have to go much longer. If we cancel school, there will only be three options. 1) The best option, we will have to return during the summer to take the rest of our required days, but you don't want to return in the summer, right? 2) We will have to make up the time by taking online classes, however, as I said, some children don't have computers or technology in general. 3) The worse case; we will have to repeat the school year, and no one wants an extra year of school.

Shutting down schools also raises the fears of families who are too scared of COVID-19. The shutting down of school will only make families more worried, making them panic buy supplies, including surgical masks and medical supplies. However, buying these supplies will only hinder medical workers as they start to run out of supplies

Of course, there are many concerns that plague the parents and students, such as getting COVID-19. Currently (3/14/20 2:52 p.m.), there are 20 cases in Nevada and 0 deaths. There are 3 million people in Nevada. There is only about 2 and a half months of school left. We can get through two months.

Unless there really is a higher concern about COVID-19 than about medical workers being able to work, there is no reason to shut down school.
