Aaron Evans started this petition to Worcester County Board of Ed

The purpose of this petition is to show Lou Taylor and the Worcester County Board of Ed that the community supports their decision to resume in-person learning on Monday January 11th.  Secondly, remaining waves should be brought back on the current schedule if not sooner.  Schools have already been modified to support full in person learning and prolonged waves only make it much harder on teachers, parents, and children.  

Prolonged school closures have a clear negative impact on children's health, education, and development.  For underprivileged children these problems are exasperated.  Private schools in the community have been open successfully since September.  This will do nothing but widen the gap for the underprivileged.  

With proper protocols and procedures in place teachers and staff are at no higher risk of infection than the community in general.  Most every business in the county is open including big box stores with thousands of people in and out each day.  If they can be open so can our schools!
