The Londonderry School Board has created a plan to return the Londonderry High School* back to the Pre-Christmas break Hybrid program on January 19, 2021. I, personally, do not think this is a wise decision.

With Rockingham County* gaining over 150 cases a day a return to school seems just unreasonable in the following weeks. Currently, the state of New Hampshire is not offering covid-19 contact tracing and testing and vaccines are limited.

After calling the Londonderry School District I have been told the main reasons for resuming are as follows.

- Mental Health Concerns

- Learning Concerns

- State Request (Request not Mandatory)*

I was also told that it is the Parent, Student, and Communities responsibility to diminish the spread of covid-19. We can already see that the community can not inhibit the spread of the virus, so how are 14-18-year-olds going to be able to while they are with friends at school?

To sum up my statement, how can you put learning over life?
