1. Because every student, teacher & #AbEd worker deserves to know their school prioritized safety, we wrote an open letter to @AdrianaLaGrange asking for school safety tours to be a mandatory part of any school relaunch program. #ableg
2. And to help guide families on conditions they may want to keep an eye out for when considering necessary measures for a safe school relaunch, we have also provided three checklists (elementary, middle & high school). #abed #ableg
3. The lists are not exhaustive & are suggestions. We hope they start impt discussions with your teachers, principals, trustees & even @adrianaLagrange.
There is a lot of work to do before schools can/should open. The discussions need to start now.

4. There are so many details that need to be addressed. Use of lockers? Will kids still each lunch on gym floors? Will HS chemistry class be offered with/out labs? Can we return to having a FT school nurse for every school?

5. Many of these suggestions are COVID19 related, but many of them if implemented, would make schools a better place in the long run. Why not take this opportunity to make all #abed schools safe & accessible places?
This is the opportunity we have before us. Be heard!
Last addition: the open letter and three checklists can all be downloaded as PDFs from our website.
