Get Sumner Schools Closed for Covid-19 started this petition to Sumner County BOE and

I believe that all sumner county schools need to be closed due to the recent coronavirus outbreak. It is dangerous for the kids and teachers to all be in close proximity of each other and people could easily be infected by this virus. The BOE should be concerned mainly for their older teachers as they are more vulnerable to this virus and are more likely to die from it. But, it seems as if they aren’t worried about that. The kids could get it and pass it to the teachers very quickly. They believe that just cleaning the schools over this weekend will be enough to prevent people from getting this illness but cleaning the schools will not prevent people from passing this around to others. As Ive seen on the news, they say to wash your hands, cover your coughs, keep distance, etc. but not every student will do all of those things frequently, even if told to do so. People will continue to talk to friends and their friend groups. This virus is spreading quick and can be very deadly to certain people. If action isn’t taken and the BOE doesn’t do anything to keep large groups of people/students broken up, kids, teachers, and even parents will be infected in a short amount of time. Please get this out there and get others to sign this petition to protect our children and their teachers.
