As numbers slowly start to increase in our county, our schools should take all precautions possible. While it is understood that outdoor classrooms may be challenging for various reasons, the classroom setting is generally "safe". Kids are wearing masks and social distancing.

We have also learned through the CDC new information that COVID19 is an aerosol and can linger for hours indoors. 

During lunch, children are not masked and though they are 6 feet apart this does not equate to a safe outcome, indoors. If they were outside, this would be considered safe. The virus as we know, is in an aerosol form and it is spread through the air easily indoors, while outdoors we know that spread and infection does not happen even nearly on the same level. 

It would be in our best interest as a community to curb spread from happening with such a contagion like COVID19 by having our children outside when they are unmasked. This specifically happens during lunch. 

We realize that this would take some planning but it is not impossible and worth the effort in order to keep our children, ourselves and out community safe. 

Please sign this petition to bring awareness to our administrators and our school district to help make this a reality.
