Mother reminds school board of district's broken promises and continuous goal shifting concerning letting parents come back to volunteer in classrooms again. She points out that there are only 69 active COVID cases in a district with 14,687 people. That's .47% positivity. (11.15.21)
Mother points out the hypocrisy of the GCISD administration concerning the district's failed COVID policies and procedures. Nurse Amy Taldo (Director of Health Services) leads this effort. With numbers less than 1% positive, parents are still not allowed in the classrooms, but after-school social programs and crowded sporting events thrive. (10.25.21)
No restrictions on parents. They can have lunch with students and even had a dance with all students and parent chaperones (in middle school).
No restrictions on Grandparent's Day and had an event for it on campus.
No restrictions on parents having pep rallies in the high school. All are welcome.
No restrictions on parents except that they can't pop in and out all day dropping things off for kids.
No restrictions. Parents can help and can have lunch with their children. They are even having elementary parties.
No restrictions on parents attending parties in classrooms. Having parties is up to individual campuses (and most will have them).

That's the issue we're fighting about--parent rights. How many rights will you give away?
Using the district's reporting numbers, we see this:
--2 active student cases
--4 active staff cases
Combining those numbers and dividing by the total number of people gets us to .04% positivity.
How does this justify keeping parents out of classrooms?
