Janice Dane started this petition to Fayette County School District

Despite concerns regarding COVID-19 and the many Indiana public schools which have been advised to close, the Fayette County public school districts have remained open despite their inclusion in the red zone, with at least 1,030 confirmed cases as of November 1, 2020. According to 2020 census data, Fayette County's population is a mere 22,835. Fayette County, Indiana currently has one of the highest numbers of COVID cases in the state per capita. These statistics influence the students and staff very drastically, and extremely little has been done to reduce cases or enforce quarantine within the county.

 

Students at Connersville High School who were unable to attend online schooling are now attending the school in person. Some of these students have even been forcibly removed from the online schooling program due to issues with attendance, or other reasons, those of which are returning to school in person. This also affects the staff, many of whom are of old age and are highly prone to the effects of the virus. Relaxed mask regulations on school grounds have contributed to case increases as well, with many students in Connersville High School not taking these precautions seriously. Students can be seen wearing no masks when not in close proximity to staff, and when near staff, some students wear them below vital covering areas.

 

Students and staff are at incredible risk of carrying or spreading the virus and little initiative is being taken by some staff to enforce safety rules. This petition aims for the public schools of Fayette County to transfer all school activity to a 100% virtual online curriculum. We highly suggest you sign this petition, thank you.
