Will schools remain closed for the rest of the semester? Governor expected to announce his decision this week; sign our petition and send your photos

He will decide about further school closures this week, Gov. Abbott told reporters yesterday. If you haven’t yet signed our petition to the governor demanding that he close schools for the remainder of the school year in the interest of community safety, you can sign it here.

Meanwhile, please send us your pictures of what you are doing to keep your community safe by this Thursday, April 16. Take a photo of yourself wearing #RedForEd and holding a sign that says a little about why you want the governor to take action — some ideas might be KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE or KEEP FEEDING KIDS — and please use the hashtag #KeepTxEdSafe. Send your photos to covid@tsta.org.
