Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy is a magnet school part of the Hartford Public School system. The HPS superintendent, Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez, has decided to move K-9th graders back to five days a week. At the beginning of the year, we had this and 10-12th graders hybrid, then there were more cases so everyone went hybrid. During December and January, according to the regulations of different colors for how bad covid was, we should've gone into red(fully virtual) as there were more than 25 cases per 100,000 people in the county.

Now on March 15th, 10-12th will start going 5 days a week. 

Our classes are tiny and only can hold up to maybe 15 desks to follow social distance regulation guidelines. Some of these classes combined of both A and B groups can be more than 30 kids. To socially distance at lunch, we would have to add another lunch wave that which would be at 9:45 in the morning. The number of kids that would be in class would be extremely unsafe and could lead to transmission of COVID within the school. As well as the hybrid model being the only reason why parents let students go to school.

The district and the superintendent care more about our grades than our safety. Not only did they not follow their own protocol earlier this winter for going fully remote, going to school 5 days a week is a horrible decision and will lead to kids having to go fully remote anyways, losing their social interaction which is apparently what these teachers care so much about. It will also make the kids who do end up going in-person get put into extremely dangerous situations that are unethical to force on us. Sign this petition to demand Dr, Leslie Torres-Rodriguez and the rest of the district to keep us hybrid and demand that safety is put as the first priority.
