Government of Ontario

Demand a safe return to schools

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO: 

WHEREAS the Ford government failed to give our schools the support they needed during the pandemic, leading to the longest school closures in Canada. 

WHEREAS Families are burnt out and kids are struggling with their wellbeing, despite the heroic efforts of teachers and education workers; and  

WHEREAS We can’t afford another year of disruptions, closures or painful remote and hybrid learning; 

THEREFORE WE, the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to invest in our kids to guarantee a safe back to school in September, including: 

  • A classroom cap of 15 
  • Upgrades to ventilation systems 
  • Offering two-doses of the COVID vaccine to all staff and students who are eligible 
  • More classroom supports for kids with special needs 
  • In-school mental health and wellness supports
