Change Your Policy Regarding Notifying Parents of Serious Illnesses

This petition had 258 supporters

Concerned Parents of Jackson, NJ started this petition to School District of Jackson, NJ

Jackson district's policy is to notify parents of a potential illness ONLY if the illness is confirmed. This means your child could be exposed to a serious virus and you will not know to look for symptoms until its too late. What you might think is a cold could turn in to something much more serious and very quickly.

As parents, we feel it is our right to get information of a suspected virus/illness as soon as possible.  It is our right to know information, as WE are the parents--not the school district.  The district clams they don't want to cause unnecessary worry, but it our choice as to whether we worry, whether we call our pediatrician or whether we do nothing at all. 

Please sign this petition so that the district will consider a revision in this policy.
