Our children need to be in school. All schools in the State of Virginia need to be reopened and accessible for students that want or need to attend with face to face teacher/student interaction. Our children are being denied quality education and are suffering from the “online” school system. Children are currently spending a majority of their day looking at a “screen,” and its frustrating parents and students. Anxiety, depression and suicidal behaviors in children have skyrocketed at massive all-time highs with our closing schools. Children require a structured environment in which to learn, with physical distancing, but NOT social distancing. The governor needs to open the schools NOW.
