Nathan Farley started this petition to Governor Jim Justice

Governor Jim Justice has recently announced that all West Virginian schools would reopen for in-person learning five days a week, without a proper alternative route of learning. As a high-school student in West Virginia, this terrifies me. Because not only will my peers and I be forced to attend school during a pandemic, but also because Jim Justice has given us little to no alternatives to it. Students are able to pursue remote learning through the state, but if they do that they won't be able to participate in extracuriculars. Basically, you would have to choose between your safety and the clubs and sports that you love. And if a student refused to physically go to school, they would be taken to juvenile court for being a delinquent. We can't allow this to happen. We can't allow Jim Justice to send West Virginia's children into a dangerous environment, and then punish them when they refuse to. This pandemic has already claimed too many lives, don't let it claim the lives of our nation's future.
