Ari Ehrlich started this petition to New York City Public Schools

The Wuhan Coronavirus, Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, or simply the Coronavirus is not only terrorizing the government and people all around but children too. My school is full of children full of anxiety about contracting the disease. Whenever somebody sneezes, another person panics. It is the same with children all across NYC. As of 09:25 on Friday, March 6, 2020, there have been 3,383 deaths. We don't want to contribute to that number. So please help us by getting school canceled. We just want to prevent ourselves from contracting this horrible disease. We need to stay safe. We beg you, not only students but as children city-wide. Please help us as much as you can. Whether you contact the DOE, sign our petition, contact the Mayor, or anything else. We are grateful. 

Furthermore, The Spence School and Collegiate School have canceled their school for the time being, as well as schools in Westchester County, New York, which is quite close to NYC. All we ask, at the very least, is a signature. Maybe a share, maybe a call. But a signature. Protect our health. 

Lastly, to the kids who are scared that their signing will result in repercussions at their schools: You have a legal right to free speech in and out of school. That's not something you need to worry about. Being around hundreds of other people during a health epidemic is, in my personal opinion. 

Thank you. 

Sincerely, 

Ariel Ehrlich
