If saving the lives of children and educators is a priority then continue to read, otherwise continue to read anyway!! 

Now is the time to stand up and demand safe schools for ALL children, educators, and school staff.  At a time when the world as we once knew it, is no more, and a time when even offenders are being released from incarceration to save their lives; students, educators, and staff are being marched back into unsafe schools. COVID-19 has proven to be unfamiliar, non-biased, unpredictable, and deadly. As such, schools are not ready for face-to-face instruction and can't ENSURE safe learning environments.   

There is nothing more desirable for teachers than to enter their classrooms with their students - and teach.  Unfortunately, an unconventional new normal now demands that we must follow the science, listen to the experts, and refrain from unnecessary exposure.  Why senselessly endanger lives when there is a safe and viable alternative?  Entering schools during a deadly pandemic is negligent and sure to result in casualties. It is now a known fact that children can and do spread the virus caused by Covid-19 and now the obvious begins: our nation is experiencing COVID cases upon fully opening schools.  For each child, or person who contracts this virus, there is a likelihood of spreading it to at least 40 others. Your household or family member could surely be the next unexpected victim. Simply put, there is just no way to open schools safely. 

We must begin preparing for a serious shift to virtual learning until the Coronavirus is contained.  Although nothing can replace face-to-face instruction, virtual learning platforms are not new and a vast majority have proven records of success.  It is unfortunate that many parents are being asked to resort to alternative parenting plans, however it is certain that their child’s safety is the main priority, and absolutely worth the sacrifice.  Our local ELECTED leaders should be working with these parents to provide resources and assistance (in their homes).  Instead, they are pushing personal agendas at the cost of infecting children and educators. This is criminal!  Why jeopardize the lives of our most precious jewels for the sake of the economy?  Is this really what you would want for your children or for their children? Your legacy depends on your decision to take a firm stand.  

We demand safe virtual learning platforms until COVID-19 is contained, and we say NO to an imminent face-to-face tragedy.
