Sofia Torres started this petition to Kennewick school district and

We call upon the KSD board of directors to delay the opening of schools until vaccinations are widespread and the rate of transmission drops to below 5 percent. Students deserve the right to learn safely, and until the risk of COVID-19 is mitigated, that means learning remotely. The Kennewick School District must step up and be willing to act responsibly, as the lives of students, staff, and their families are in their hands.

Cases of COVID-19 have skyrocketed in the United States over the past months of the pandemic. Within Benton County, there have been 638 cases per 100 thousand over a 14 day period as reported by Benton-Franklin Health District. This greatly exceeds the state’s recommendations of 200 cases per 100,000 over a 14 day period for the return of middle and high schoolers to in-person learning. This is not conducive to a safe or beneficial learning environment for students.

To whom it may concern:


My name is [y/n] and I am a [student/parent/Kennewick resident], and I am asking that you vote to delay the opening of schools until vaccinations are widespread and the rate of transmission drops to below 5 percent. Students deserve the right to learn safely, and until the risk of COVID-19 is mitigated, that means learning remotely. The Kennewick School District must step up and be willing to act responsibly, as the lives of students, staff, and their families are in their hands. Cases of COVID-19 have skyrocketed in the United States over the past months of the pandemic. Within Benton County, there have been 638 cases per 100 thousand over a 14 day period as reported by Benton-Franklin Health District. This greatly exceeds the state’s recommendations of 200 cases per 100,000 over a 14 day period for the return of middle and high schoolers to in-person learning. This is not conducive to a safe learning environment for students. On January 13th, please vote NO to reopen schools.


Sincerely,

[y/n]
