Call Ron DeSantis 850-717-9337. Tell him to keep schools closed!

Community spread is too high across most of Florida to safely open schools!

Orange County asked for a waiver and he hasn’t said one way or the other whether it will be granted. Keep the pressure on!

Emails are great but phone calls make more of an impact!

We are over 10K cases/day for a couple weeks now. It is beyond ridiculous.

There will be teachers and students who die.

Online learning is not ideal but it must be our way forward for the next couple months.

And please, get 10 other people to call!
