Scarsdale students have been learning remotely since March. While teachers, parents, and students have done their best to rise to the occasion, we have all suffered an academic, social, and emotional toll. There are no easy answers to the question of how to return to school. The health of all teachers, staff and students must obviously be the top priority. Provided that some amount of in-person learning is possible, we, the students and parents of SMS and SHS, feel that ALL of the district's students are a priority, and ALL students should have the opportunity to be back in our classrooms in September. Please do not deny middle and high schoolers the academic and mental health benefits of in-person learning in order to serve an agenda of preferentially returning elementary students to their classrooms. A district choice to sacrifice the education and wellbeing of one group over another seems profoundly unwise. Please move forward with a plan that benefits ALL students equally.
