Children should be able to attend school in person where the virus is not spreading and there is sufficient staff. It is a grave injustice to keep all children in Marion County out of school when it is safe for some to attend.

My son needs and wants to be in school. This is not healthy mentally for children.

I agree with Indy Schools Matter. The Public Health order is NOT in the best interest of children in our community. Rational decisions need to be made by our leaders, and the school closure mandate is not rational. The mandate is detrimental to our children and must be reconsidered.

Education should be more important that professional sports, bars, and restaurants! Close those before you close our schools.

As a pediatrician I agree 100% that schools should continue to be open. The science shows that children are at low risk of developing severe symptoms. Most children are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. Further more studies have showing that kids under the age of 12 are less likely to transmit coronavirus compared to adults. The CDC does not recommend shut downs longer than 2 to 4 weeks. This is mainly to help staff numbers if their isolation and quarantine prevents adequate staff numbers to instruct the children in school.Also Smith cc released new guidelines decreasing quarantine to 10 days and seven days, if you have a negative test after five days of quarantine.
