Keep BHS Safe
We as the Batesville Community implore the Batesville High School administration to begin a process of more open transparency with their faculty and student body. We also wish to ask the school to, at the very least, consider the possibility of transitioning to an e-learning school environment for the protection and safety of all students and the Batesville community. We understand the great difficulties assigned with this process, but feel it is of utmost importance to protect students in these trying times, especially while Ripley and three surrounding counties are in a red state for Covid-19 cases. Due to the extremely high rate of quarantines within the school, students' education are also at risk. Hundreds of students are not in the classroom every day and are forced into falling behind due to the ill-planning of administration. Student health is not the only thing at risk, their education is. This petition’s sole purpose is to bring attention to these issues and allow the administration an opportunity to hear the voice of their students and address their concerns. To all signing this petition, we ask that you share your own experiences with the school during this crisis or share any issue that you wish to levy with the administration.
