Jamie L. J. White started this petition to Governor Chris Sununu

As a mom of two little ones (Jack in 3rd grade and Laurel in Kindergarten), I know firsthand the work that teachers do. Teachers this year have had to be so many things. I know our family has relied on our children’s teachers not just for our children’s education, but for their, and our, emotional well-being. Every single person knows a teacher- and it blows my mind that there is not more support for them. 

Teacher vaccination must be a priority in New Hampshire. In order for schools to safely reopen, they need resources. And a school’s most valuable resource is their teachers. We need to protect teachers so that they can go back to school safely. 

Governor Sununu is not following CDC guidelines when it comes to the vaccination process. The CDC has classified school staff as “frontline essential workers.” This means, that per federal vaccination guidelines, “school personnel- including custodians, food service workers, and bus drivers- along with child care providers, are in category 1b, just after the elderly in long-term care facilities and health care workers.” 

The Governor has not been responsive to the attempts of SAU 29’s Superintendent in voicing their concerns, nor does the Governor seem to believe that teachers are at risk. We know this is not true- and we need to protect them. Please sign this petition to encourage Governor Sununu to do the right thing, and prioritize the vaccination of New Hampshire teachers.
