KIPP SFCP Student Coalition started this petition to Principal Mr Page and

Covid-19 caused by the novel-coronavirus has been spreading across the world since the beginning of the year. There are 124 confirmed cases in California, which is under a state of emergency. One of the most prestigious universities in the country,Stanford, has closed its doors for two weeks due to a confirmed case on its campus. In San Francisco, Lowell and Riordan will also be under close doors as in both situations a parent of a student has tested positive. ICA has also closed its doors as a staff member tested positive. This is critical to the health of our city and community and which is why school should be canceled until further notice from public health officials. Covid-19’s incubation period is 2 weeks which can mean the virus can spread without any signs of symptoms. Many staff and students take public transportation to and from school. This can act as an incubator for a virus as it spread on transit with a high concentration of people in a small space.  The health and safety of Kippsters is top priority as stated by school administration. This is why it is imperative to try and stop the spread of this virus. Covid-19 antivirals and vaccines are under development but it will take several months after they clear medical trials and get government approval. Some students at school may have already been exposed without anyone knowing. It may not be an if situation, but a when.
