J C M started this petition to Evergreen School District Authorities

We all know it is widespread in california and state already declared emergency, our kids and school officials have to face the threat of contacting Coronavirus on daily basis.

State Emergency : https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/03/04/governor-newsom-declares-state-of-emergency-to-help-state-prepare-for-broader-spread-of-covid-19/

As per news and details floating around, kids are least venerable, but they can carry it to the families where we have old parents (could be impacted severely sick people) .

As a precautionary measure to prevent the possibility of spread of COVID-19 among our children, families and community, we should request school authorities to shutdown schools till conditions are stable.

There are already many events/gatherings being cancelled but keeping schools open (weakest link where all the kids are being gathered during breaks/lunch time/moving around class room to class room in some middle schools) will defeat the purpose of that.

To protect our families and community, we should not wait until somebody gets exposed in our schools, we should request School District to take decision at earliest.

To control the situation without having huge impact on community and kids education, we have following suggestions to school district authorities.

1. We request to close the schools for couple of weeks or advance spring break and/or extend it by 1 or 2 weeks

2. Excused Absence for COVID-19: If parents want to keep the kids home, those leaves should be excused and homework kit (i.e Classwork, homework assignments, catchup tests) to be provided.

Please help signing the petition, we can protect community Together.
