Dear Mr. Johnston! We are the concerned parents of Shenandoah county. Last week the governor commented that he would be leaving it up to the school boards to make a decision regarding how many days and when students can return to school. In the briefing, his chief assistant even said it’s imperative that children return to school. Despite any disagreements we may have with our governor, I think we can all agree this statement was on point!

When school is scheduled to start back up again, our children will have been out of school for a little over 4 months. Only letting them return a few days is unacceptable! Schools needs to go back full time WITH TRANSPORTATION!! There are WAY too many families that will be negatively impacted by the proposed schedule and lack of transportation!

Children who are supposed to start kindergarten this year would be delayed, children who are already delayed will fall even more behind, and children who struggle with anxiety or depression need socialization with kids their own age and adults who are trained professionals. Not only is their learning a top priority, but mental wellness is also a top priority.

Parents of Shenandoah county have spoken up and signed this petition...SCHOOLS NEED TO BE OPENED FULL TIME AND ON TIME! Please don’t let children get behind in academics because of fear. It’s been stated that less than 1% of children under the age of 18 are likely to contract covid. That’s extremely low odds! Please...WE ARE BEGGING! Make the right decision for families across the county and open schools.
