Cassandra Barbato started this petition to Westerly School Committee and

During the current pandemic situation our children have had to suffer virtual learning, no contact with their friends while not being able to attend school for 4 to 5 months. Some schools have found a way to get their students back to a new normal for a 5 day a week schedule that allows these students to feel healthier on a social emotional level as well as an educational level. 

Parents have returned to work full time and knowing that their child/children are in a safe nurturing environment of our choice is our right to make.  School districts however have decided to make this a more difficult scenario because they are not willing to assist with transportation that they are legally required to by RI General Law 16-21-1 is not something families need at this time. 

My son attends middle school at Monsignor Clarke School in Wakefield and they have a plan in place to allow him to return to school full time.  However this may not be able to happen because I work in the opposite direction of his school full time and cannot provide the transportation he needs.  Transportation that has been supplied to private schools since he was in Kindergarten and attended St. Pius X School.  It is only right that these school districts work with families to do their best to provide a much needed transportation for these families.  Instead of discussing any solutions to make this a possibility they have decided since our children do not attend their school they do not need to be bothered with their transportation needs.  

This is not acceptable and I am asking you to sign this petition to show support for our request to demand districts support private schools and the students in their districts that attend them by providing transportation as deemed legally required by RI General Law 16-21-1.  Thank you for your time and support in our cause to get children to their school this year.
