Parents from nine different school districts came together for a “Cross District Rally to Reopen” in downtown Naperville to advocate for kids being allowed to return to school on a five-day full time basis with lunch and activities.
The group of over 150 started off at the corner of Webster Street and Douglas Avenue at 11 a.m., and walked to the Free Speech Pavilion at the Riverwalk.
“We just want to get across that parents and kids are ready for kids to be back in school full-time, five days a week,” said Sara Forster who is a District 203 parent. “That it’s the responsibility of these western suburban districts to be leaders, get the kids back in school show how it can be done. We have the resources, we can do it.”
