Teachers and parents are returning to schools on Oct 19, but the current reopening plan is NOT safe for students, employees or their families.

Here is one of the speeches that fifty teachers, parents, and students shared with HISD Board and HISD Administration at board meetings on Oct 1 and Oct 8. Your voice matters and our words do change things. 

"This is my 11th year as an educator with HISD and I am committed to the students and families I serve. However this commitment should not put my life, or the lives of my students and their families at risk. I tested positive for COVID in June, six days after attending an outdoor graduation ceremony.

Today, exactly 16 weeks later, I am still battling covid symptoms and lasting effects. I continue to experience devastating fatigue, shortness of breath, and my breathing stopping during sleep. 

Returning in person without effective safety protocols, rapid testing abilities, and social distancing measures puts everyone in our community at risk for illness that could last well beyond 2 weeks or even worse, death.

I am asking HISD to continue leading other school districts by being transparent and making safety the top priority for everyone. We all want to teach our students, but we want to do it safely."

Join HFT's CAR CARAVAN PROTEST on Saturday, Oct 17, at 10 am to publicly stand together—teachers, parents, students, support personnel, community members—to demand that HISD ensure a safer reopening. We must not put the lives of students, teachers, other staff and their families at risk.  We will meet at Hattie Mae White HISD. More details to follow. 
Together we can. Together we must. Car caravan protest at Hattie Mae on Saturday Oct 17, at 10am. VOTE RIGHT AFTER!
