We, the students of New Albany, are disappointed.  We want life to be normal again just as much as you, the administrators, do.  The simple fact is that it is fundamentally unsafe to send us back to a fully in-person model right now.  The protective measures you have put in place thus far are great; masks are relatively well-enforced, desk sanitization is routine, and desks are as spaced out as they can be.  However, there still exist many issues with having a fully in-person model. Classrooms are not big enough to accommodate proper social distancing, and no amount of hand sanitizer can keep us safe.  You have used our lives as an experiment, pushing the envelope further and further in an attempt to return to normalcy.  We refuse to be used as your lab rats any longer. 

You may be asking us a few questions at this point.  Firstly, did we not sign up to go into this school year knowing that we would eventually return to a fully in-person model?  It is true that this has been your plan, but frankly, none of us thought you would be ignorant enough to actually do it.  The vast majority of other schools are fully virtual, and we reasoned that no right-minded individuals would put us in that much danger.  Perhaps we were wrong, or perhaps we simply overestimated your care for us.  You may also be wondering why we would not switch to virtual learning, or you may consider switching the signers of this petition to a virtual program.  That is not what we want.  As stated earlier, we want life to be normal again too, we just understand that it is fundamentally unsafe to do so.  A hybrid program is the only safe way to attend school right now.

We demand that you return our schedule to the safer hybrid model.  If you do not, we fear that people will get sick, possibly die.  How many of our peers do we have to bury before you understand the ignorance of your decision?  At what point will you pull the plug on this nonsense and start actually protecting us instead of using us as bartering chips?  

You have proven to us that you do not care for our lives or our safety.  We are giving you a chance to redeem yourselves.  So it is thus that we demand, for the protection of all of your students, that you return to a hybrid learning model.
