Governor Dewine stated today (5/5/2020) that "mixed" school days are being considered for the 2020-2021 school year in Ohio. 2 days in school for half the students while the other half would do "remote" learning then rotate. 

As the state begins opening up, many parents will be going back to work. These "mixed" school days will not only put undo hardship on parents financially as many will have to send their children to day care in lieu of school. Children will also be deprived of many opportunities not always available to them at home as well as a structured consistent schedule children need.

Schools provide access to an education for every child in the community, and those that attend school are more likely to be in classrooms with other children that don’t think, act or look exactly like them. Students are more apt to be exposed to students from different cultures or income levels. They may learn to work with other students with mental and physical disabilities. The diversity of the student body can be an important learning experience in itself for all of the children that attend school.

Please join me in letting our state know NOW, not in the fall,l that we want our  students back in school this fall. No staggered school year, no masks, no new normal.
