We, the residents of Rhode Island, Demand Distant Learning continue for the Safety of Our Children
We, the residents Rhode Island, feel that opening Schools will be detrimental to Our Children, Teachers, Custodians, Bus Drivers, the entire School Community and everyone's Families. With all of the unknown factors factors associated with COVID we feel that you are playing Russian Roulette with Our Children, Teachers, the entire School Community and Our Families. COVID has already claimed so many lives and they still don't know what long term affects it has on Children. The one affect we know that is has on a Child is they can lose their LIFE to it! And if one Child Dies from catching it in School, that is one child to Many. If one Teacher Dies from catching it in school, that is one teacher to many. If one Custodian Dies, well I think you get it!! You say we need to open Schools for the Children's Mental Health? Let us ask; What happens to the child's mental health when they are told, stay six feet apart, NO Hugging, NO Touching, NO Interaction at All, must stay in the same room All Day, etc.. Don't you realize the fear and Anxiety YOU are instilling in these Children. And when the day comes that you have to tell these children that one of Their Class Mates or Teachers has Died from catching COVID at School, what happens to their Mental Health Then!!!!!! Listen to YOUR COMMUNITY!! Continue with Distant Learning.
This petition Serves a Dual purpose, it is to let YOU know that it is not just a Select Handful of People making this Demand to Continue with Distant Learning, It is Families and Entire Communities. So, Please Listen to Your Residents.
