  Better to be safe than sorry. The coronavirus has almost reached Plano, and it is already made it into Collin county,Dallas county,McKinney and the surrounding areas in North Texas. Three new cases in Texas has been announced this week, Frisco. Over the spring break, as we all know, people travel. The coronavirus is known to piggyback on travelers and make it back to their home countries. With the virus inside of a county, it is impossible to separate out people who have been in affected areas. Schools are hubs for, not only learning, but also interaction. And interaction is the ideal method of spread for this virus. Schools can become breeding grounds for the virus. Further Spread of the virus, at this rate, will overwhelm medical centers by early to late May. Here’s the math:

   Here are some problems some people might have with school being closed after spring break:

 

   Problem 1: I can’t leave my child unattended, I need to go to work! Schools need to stay open.

  Counter: I am sure you can’t but you can hire a babysitter. I am also sure you won’t want your child to get the coronavirus or to give it to someone, would you?

 

   Problem 2: What about assignments and tests?

   Counter: The school your child attends, I am sure, can handle that online.

 

    You can help stagger the spread of the coronavirus, by just one click. The threat is real now. Let’s act before it is too late, before there is an active transmission in the Plano community. Vote to shut schools, until the spread is curbed or we have an effective vaccination and treatment to save lives of our loved ones, community, and staff. Moreover, yourselves. Please spread the message to your friends,  family , colleagues , and acquaintances etc., Let's not wait until we see a positive case here in PISD. 

Thank you all for your support.
