BEARS PROTESTS started this petition to YORK COUNTY SCHOOL DIVISION SCHOOL BOARD

Dear School Board,

We are calling on you to rescind the decision on July 30, 2020 to reopen schools. The choices provided, in reality, constitute some form of online/at-home instruction with zero choice for our children to attend school at the start of the school year. And, we are asking for two new options for parents to be considered - to open the classrooms or to delay attendance for those who feel online at-home instruction is economically unjust.

You have opened the doors to the schools to a third-party, Champions, so we wonder, why, on a limited basis, you can't open the doors to our children to be in classrooms with certified teachers? Based on our experience with youth sports since we have been in Phase III, it would appear that the declines in attendance will be at about 50%, suggesting that there is a base of people who desire
online at-home, and an equal base that desire to be back in the classroom.

We are a tight-knit community, and it is likely that we have reached some herd-immunity here as deaths have plateaued/ceased since April in York and have not increased in the surrounding areas either. Classrooms will become safer as people get together. Yes, cases will rise, that's as natural as the chicken pox. We ask you to reopen the schools with safety measures in place. 

We appreciate your efforts to start the school year, but you have failed the community with your 100% online at-home attendance mandates. We feel strongly that students and teachers should be back in the classroom. 

Appreciatively,

 

Residents of York County
