Please do not allow school districts to bring all students back into the classroom until teachers have received both Covid-19 vaccine doses. School districts across the state are already using loopholes in DOH guidelines to do as little as possible to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 putting students, teachers, and families all at risk. Social distancing is not strictly followed or possible in a lot of cases, case numbers and contact tracing are not transparent, and no one is currently holding school districts accountable.
Teachers have been abandoned by their districts and the state, and have been left without a voice. In order to please parents, superintendents and school boards are rushing the return to full in-person instruction before it is safe to do so.
Please take a stand and refuse to allow districts to return all students to in-person instruction until teachers have received both Covid-19 vaccine doses.
