School Is Essential
Children face enormous academic and social emotional challenges everyday due to COVID-19. We are here to support them.
We are a community organization based in Bellevue which played a major role in bringing in-person learning option to all students of Washington during COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of our 1,500 strong members participated in the sourcing and donation of PPEs to the community and served on the frontline during the pandemic. Our group also successfully advocated for and helped secure early access to vaccines for the educators in the state.
Washington ranked at the bottom of the nation in terms of in-person learning opportunities for students. Experiences across the nation and the globe have shown that school can open safely.
Attending school in person is essential for the mental and physical health of children and teens and for their ability to receive a meaningful education, including for social emotional learning.
Families are left out of the discussions on many issues concerning their schools including re-opening. Transparency and accountability are paramount in fostering trust between districts and the community.
