Each morning we, parents of children attending schools in West Windsor-Plainsboro, wake up with a sense of dread, feverishly checking stats on new COVID-19 cases. And each day the newly infected people appear closer and closer to our school district, unnerving us all. States are getting more test kids, allowing for more testing to be conducted. It is reasonable to conclude that the expanded testing for COVID-19 will reveal more cases of infections, and where is the guarantee that we will not see infected people right here, in our township? If there is a fair chance that this possibility exists, adults who care about the well being of children, should do all that is possible to protect them. 

It is well known that asymptomatic individuals infected with COVID-19 are highly infectious during disease incubation period, and able to transmit virus via droplets while coughing and sneezing, with the range of up to 7 feet, according to some studies. This persistent virus can survive on surfaces for up to 2 weeks, the fact which ensures that if even one student or teacher in school is infected, most of those others who are in contact would get the virus as well.

We, parents of WW-P students, understand and value the importance of education, but faced with this unprecedented crisis, we would like to join many parents of other school districts and ask WW-P school district administration to protect our precious children and our teachers and reconsider keeping our schools open, instead opting for temporary measure of conducting the education of our children through online classes, textbooks and/or learning aids. We are asking you to make an expedited decision to close schools before situation becomes more grave.
