Christy Foster started this petition to Macomb School District 185 Board of Education

The signatories of this letter call on the Board of Education for the Macomb School District 185, in the immediate return to in-person learning.  We believe as parents/guardians and teachers, we should have the OPTION to CHOOSE In-Person Learning.  We are asking for MORE In-Person instructional time than the current Remote/Hybrid model provide.  

Our ultimate goal is for students to return to in person all day, everyday.  We also understand there may be a desire to attain this goal via progression. We need to start the process.

Listed below are a few reasons why we support getting our students back in school.

1) Evidence shows that schools are not major drivers of the spread of COVID-19. With proper safety precautions, students in the classroom are not at significantly elevated risk of contracting the virus, and neither are their teachers, school staff, families, or community. 

2) Private schools within the district and other neighboring districts have successfully executed five day in-person education. By being flexible and quarantining classrooms on a case-by-case basis, they have been able to maintain educational standards and prevent outbreaks.

3) Key infection control measures are being implemented and will continue to reduce the risk of in-school transmission.

We are also calling to maintain a virtual option for families that are high-risk, and not willing to return their children to our buildings.

Enough is enough. Remote learning is failing our kids, and they deserve better.
