I’m petitioning to get schools in Covid 19 hotspots closed 1 week early for Christmas to enable people to spend time with family without the risk of transmitting the virus, as we know there is a high amount of cases in our schools and the threat of fines is forcing parents/carers to send their children into schools where the virus is spreading at a fast rate, classes and bubbles are being closed and told to isolate daily and we run the risk of loosing the 5 days that have been allowed by the government to spend time with family and loved ones! If our children are in contact or told to isolate after the 11th of December it will stop you being able to mix, it would be best practice to close a week early for the Christmas break and reduce the rate and possibility that you will pass to others over the mixing period. If they can’t be closed then I ask for fines to be scrapped for that week as it should be the parents decision to weather or not to send their children with regards to who they will be mixing with at Christmas!
