**Note we are not in need of you "chipping" in to support this petition. Change.org does prompt you to do so, but know that any money goes to them to host and promote (in some way) this petition above other petitions.

The past month has seen an unprecedented number of event cancellations in the US and worldwide. The Covid-19 virus is nothing like anything we have faced in our modern economic times.  The purpose of this petition is to sound an alarm on a massive problem we face in our lives.

As we all suffer from this Covid-19 Pandemic We're facing a few big problems,

1) Each and everyone of us have lost or know someone who lost a family member, loved one, or a friend.

2) Many lost their Jobs, or have had a decrease in income.

3) During normal times in many family's Both parents have to work full time in order to cover their monthly bills like, grocery, mortgages and insurance etc.

4) On March 16 all Schools in NYS have closed, and it's been announced that they will remain closed untill the end of the Academic year.

As a direct result of the closed schools parents either have to cancel their jobs in order to be able to stay home with their kids & take care of them, learn with them, prepare all meals and clean up after their kids.

Or they have to become creative, by working at home while also overseeing their children's education.

We all understand that the school taxes are going for a great cause the education of our beloved kids, but as we face the worst economic disaster since the great depression,

Every single American has been negatively impacted by the Corona Virus Outbreak. Most Americans have lost all or a majority of their income by being forced to stay home. School taxes make up a large percentage of the cost of owning property - whether to homeowners or landlords. 

This petition is for the suspension of residential School taxes for the year 2020. This will greatly alleviate the financial stress, which has been brought upon us by the Corona Virus pandemic.

It would be highly unfair for residents who have owned their homes for years to now face the threat of losing their homes or a tax lien because of their inability to pay their School taxes through not fault of their own.

Therefore it would be ideal and the right time for the school taxes to be credited to all the people who are effected of Covid-19

We're Calling on those who can make these changes please help us the average American who's struggling to get through those tough times.

This petition is an urgent call to action, one which requires the investment and engagement of our entire school community. Please sign it.
