In our community, everybody was a little bit nervous and concerned about sending the children back to school.
- A lot of people were opting for remote learning, but we couldn’t do that because we have to work to keep food on the table and pay the bills.
A bunch of us parents actually had a meeting with the school board to see if they would install special UV air purification systems in the school so that the kids could be safe from the virus. While they admitted it was a pretty good idea, they informed us that they didn’t have any room in the budget for that. A lot of us were furious that they wouldn’t change up the budget and prioritize something as necessary as a UV air purification system. So a bunch of us ended up going around the community to pick up donations towards installing a quality UV air purification system at the school. People were actually thrilled about the idea and most people donated especially if they had kids attending the same school. It didn’t even take us long to come up with the money needed to have the UV air purification system installed at the school. They were actually shocked when we came with the money, and they didn’t hesitate to have the UV air purification system installed after the money was provided. Now thanks to our efforts, we can feel more peace of mind knowing that our kids likely won’t get sick at school thanks to the quality UV air purification system they have now.
