Lancaster Stands Up

We are disappointed and deeply concerned that Gov Wolf is allowing schools to reopen for in-person learning. Please call or email Governor Wolf and tell him he has the power to keep our children and teachers safe during this pandemic. Tell him to keep PA schools closed to in-person learning.

Email: www.governor.pa.gov/contact/#OnlineFormSchool governing boards and administrators will determine if school buildings reopen and if classes resume in person, remotely, or a combination of the two.

The best way to find out about these local decisions is to contact your school’s governing board or administration.

Our governor is “damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.” I think he’s doing a great job. Now he’s encouraging local decisions and leadership.

Done

Finally, a sound decision from this Governor! Most towns in Pa have barely been impacted by Covid. Each school district will continue with a unique plan to open safely. For many reasons, children need to be in school. If I don't believe mine are safe, I am free to keep them home.

I just sent an email. I think that opening the schools would be terrible decision at this time. I feel lime the Governor has done a great job to this point, but because so many people have and still are defying his authority, I think he is between a rock and a hard place.

How would you suggest addressing the concerns for vulnerable children in unsafe homes? There are children who need to be seen by mandated reporters and have regular access to food. Children suffering from neglect and abuse are unlikely to be able to take advantage of food distribution programs. Even while navigating Covid-19 risks, school is so often THE safe place for many children, especially in the city. I can’t in good conscience participate in this particular action. The circumstances for many are just too complicated for an approach that focuses on too narrow a definition of safety and well-being.

I think instead of taking away a choice that a lot of families need, I think every district should be made to offer hybrid and remote options and allow parents to choose. Some families in the middle class do not qualify for free internet and cannot afford the cheapest option. Some families depend upon meals. Some kids have IEPs. Some parents cannot work from home and do not have support. We need to have the right to choose what’s best for our kids/families. We are all in that proverbial rock and hard place. I love Gov Wolf and Sec Levine but unless we have to lockdown again, let us have a say. PLEASE FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET INTERNET FOR ALL FAMILIES!

I wish you would...

Watching what my 2020 Senior went through and my now Sophmore online learning is not conducive for some children. Kids, like mine, need face to face in classroom learning. Especially the CTC kids who are learning hands on trades for their future. I cannot in good conscience as a parent of high school kids sign or call.

My email is sent! Thank you!

Kohl’s Department Stores are putting their sales over our safety.

Workers at Kohl’s Park City, in Lancaster, PA were recently told that a coworker had tested positive for Covid-19. But instead of informing public health authorities and closing the store for cleaning, Kohl's management instructed workers to keep quiet about the situation, implying that workers who talked about it would be violating policy. Such reckless disregard for the safety of its workers, customers, and their families puts all of us at risk. Please take a moment to ask Kohl’s to do better by our community.

Please call Kohl’s Park City at 717-291-6600 and ask management to 1) close the store until it has been thoroughly cleaned, and 2) make sure that testing is available for any employees who were potentially exposed to coronavirus while at work.

You can also call Kohl’s corporate office at 262-704-9456 to express your concerns.

We encourage reporters and the news media to investigate this matter.

If you are a worker experiencing related violations of safety or threats from your employer, you can contact Lancaster Stands Up at info@lancasterstandsup.org for support. We will respect your anonymity.

Nice to know that Kohl's is standing up to Wolfie and latrines scare tactics I'll be sure to patronize them this year

Great. Juat in time for back to school shopping, when masses of people will be at the mall. Who knows how many other employees in other stores this person came in contact with?

There is a 99.05% chance you have nothing to worry about. Unless you were in the changing room doing something you shouldn't have been doing there with the infected person. in that case you may want to go get tested in a few days

It can be but nothing ever happens lots of big stores have this policy.

Probably some “Karen” who didn’t get to use her Kohl’s Cash before it expired. I wouldn’t bother sharing it.

Can't it be reported to the health department 🤔

Do you want them to close?

Chris Fuhrman Buzzendore great. I just left there 1 hr ago.

What excuses would ICE typically give for separating this parent from other family members?

Pennsylvania is key to defeating Trump. And so are you.

We have just 117 days before the November 3rd election. As you know, Pennsylvania is key to the presidential election. And there are so many important PA state races that we can make a difference in too.

To gear up for a strong grassroots operation that can make a difference in November, we’re calling through our members and supporters right now to talk to them about how they’ll be involved in the homestretch. Can you help make these important calls?

So many of us have stepped up to get involved—to do our part—these past few years. No one is going to do it for us, and we can’t take anything for granted. We have to step up in these last few months before November 3rd. We know it's up to us!

I’d like to see what the specific demands are for our city and county. Is there a place you can direct me to for that?

Could you possibly start with having a group that reflects the community you are in? Or Donating to Black Organizations? People want actions, not words, black folks don’t need reminders they are struggling, they know.
