It was very respectful. The kids did a little line dance and everything. Very peaceful. Great job, kids! ✌♥️
I’ve herd from many different sources it was a peaceful and respectful walk. By the way, happy to see the masks.
Just to let you all know I was returning to my home with a 38ft trailer and couldn't go down Gibraltar road because it was blocked. I stopped to ask if Shelbourne was open, the protesters cheered because they had stopped me from going that direction. This action is nothing more than to have an excuses to disrupt society. You want to change racism? Start with the people claiming racism.
And Exeter kids have made the news. !! Yea !! 74 days later. Total BS !! whats the matter with parents and the idiot Wolf? No graduations, limit people in churchs, wear masks, limit people in restaurants BUT. Hundreds can PROTEST !! Rofl !! Why isn't protesting limited? Constitutional rights? ROFL
Putting a race in front of the saying Lives matter is racist in itself. These kids clearly have been indoctrinated into thinking it's ok to think that BLM when in reality ALL LIVES MATTER.
Thanks to all the Patriots that showed up to remind all those with clear dementia that All Lives Matter.
As a proud graduate of Exeter High fifty years ago, I was glad to see this new generation of student leaders embodying John Lewis’s challenge to “get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and redeem the soul of America.”
So proud of these young adults! Hope for a better future for everyone!
The sign guy showed up at the protest. My friend took some pics......
We can’t open the school but kids can gather at the school to protest cops. Welcome to the twilight zone.
The comments on this post are terrible. We’re still protesting because you guys clearly STILL don’t get it. When we see that everyone is truly seen and treated with equity & grace, only then will there be an end to the protests. But keep being racist, you’re fueling our fire! 😊*All* lives can’t matter until Black lives ALSO matter to EVERYONE.
Exeter Township Police DepartmentTRAFFIC ADVISORY/ PROTEST at POLICE Dept.: Today, Sunday 8/9/2020, there will be a Black Lives Matter protest taking place in Exeter Township from 1200 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The march/protest will start at the Exeter Sr. High School, travel along Reiff Place and Dunham Drive, turn onto Gibraltar Road and conclude at the Exeter Township Police Department.

All lives matter. Putting a color in front of the saying lives matter is racist.
Keep it classy Exeter! Social distance and WEAR A MASK!!!!!!
A group of people walking together not practicing social distancing. Sounds like a great idea.
We can’t open schools as we have to social distance and schools who are opening all kids have to wear masks.. but let’s March all together in a huge group.. oh and let the police protect them despite part of their protest is to defund the police 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
Can we organize a ‘back the blue’ rally?
If everyone wears masks and they're walking as a group peacefully, what's the problem?
What a bunch of clowns
Black lives matter, protesting police brutality, while having the police provide assistance for safe travels on the protest route.
Jesus the logic in the country is absurd anymore.
Glad this crap is now on our door step.
While bars,restaurants,others get restrictions to the point they lose their businesses but we can gather in crowds here.This world has lost its mind!
I had no idea so many people in Exeter were racist.
You gotta be kidding me 😡
BLM IS Very peaceful indeed
Let me know when you needs shirts to BTB! I know Sherriff Weaknecht posted an event later this month
The financier of BLM AND ANTIFA
This shit needs to stay out of the burbs!!!
Nice move...right through a residential area! Not Smart! 🤬
I better be able to leave work & go home or this girl is going to be pissed!
Love how all the hateful comments are from people that don’t even live in Exeter!
If I lived on dunham I would be on my front porch with multiple guns.. oh and a Trump shirt
BLM is a Marxist political group masquerading as a civil rights organization.
Thank you for the heads up. I was planning on heading to Exeter, but I will stay home today.
How about a blm March in Chicago! If they really gave a shit that’s where they would march!! Till then it’s just people looking for attention!
Its Saturday night. We're all home. Give it a rest
Any information on the two "peaceful protests" supposed to happen in Exeter on Sunday, what they are protesting and where they will be protesting?
If you keep saying it an putting everywhere sooner or later everyone is just going to say fuck you and do what they want to do so give it a fucking rest
Blah blah blah do as we say not as we do blah blah blah
What exactly is the point of these people having jobs and government titles
What really do they do ? What is their point
Seems like they are either completely useless or their jobs are just redundant.
Several of these people have had this job for years and have accomplished absolutely nothing
Please let me know when our school taxes will go down 😆😋😁
Yeah they listen to the taxpayers
New superintendent doing a great job already
What a complete and total joke
Now you choose not to listen to what the CDC says 🤨. I don't get it
Remember who the 6 who voted for this on the school board
They are in the pocket of the teachers union and being completely funded by them
Just look at everyone on the board they all have major connections, not one single normal blue collar taxpayerTake the time to follow this link make the call it will take about 15-20 minuteswww.fbi.gov/investigate/public-corruptionIt’s time someone from outside takes a look at things
The lies and constant money mis management needs to be looked into in both the township and school district
This is just another kick in the teeth from the school district, you raise taxes and then screw them for the school year
I would like to thank the board for making such a difficult decision and keeping our children and students safe.
This is one of the reasons we pulled our son out of Exeter. They have proven to us time after time they don’t care about our kids just their funding. Complete disgrace.
Thank you Ann Hearing for standing up for most of us, unfortunately you were outnumbered
I support the board’s decision to move virtual for the beginning of the year. Thank you all for having strong opinions. Put your head on the chopping block next? Too scared? Too busy? Fight for what you care about. These members of our community are putting us (their community) above their own interests. If you care so much stop your whining and do something. Be the change you want to see.
Take the first 3 days off for what...and then 1/2 days...smh...get it together already!
Ant yet they allow sports to happen. The other day i drove by the jr high and saw kids having a soccer camp and no masks were on.
Jane E. Smith Cavanaugh Candy Smith Melissa Hacket
Mixed emotions here, but I do feel students aren't getting the education they deserve virtually....
Don’t worry. This will all be over in November when the pandemic miraculously is over.
Excellent choice Exeter!
So now we don’t follow cdc recommendations?
Well said Patty Pinkerton!
Kelly Mohn Frank
Okay so. Who we contact for a few questions. About this
Are they putting in a plan for full time working parents who can’t be with there elementary students during school hours and are they counting there attendance when they actually get on bc I work 6am till after 3 and it’s just not ideal for my child to get on at those times not with both of us working and I’m not about to stress my sister out when she has a child of her own in a different school who’s in a different grade just not good for her mental health? I did email the principal yesterday at owatin and have heard nothing back as to any flexibility what so ever
Gov just recommended no sports until Jan. 1, 2021
Do I get an adjustment on my out of this world school taxes?
BREAKING: Exeter's 100% virtual learning plan for the first nine weeks has passed with 6 votes. For the rest of the board, one member voted against the plan, one member abstained, and one member was absent. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for the breaking news!! You are a Patriot! 🇺🇸😷😎🇺🇸😎😷
How can any of the board members be "absent"? Esp during a time like this
Proud of our school board tonight:)
Easy for people who dont have kids in school anymore to say good news. But alot of parents disagree with the decision as well so
Great. So now we figure out which one of us parents gets to quit work so we can stay home? Anyone know a number I can call that will help pay my bills now that one of us has to be home. We dont have the luxury of one of us staying home. Unlike some people.
It's totally against working parents
How the hell do you abstain?
The asynchronous periods are a joke. Can any parent truly see a K-6 child working independently and staying on task without supervision of parent or teacher? This will make the working parent a teacher all day. When they too should be WFH.
I guess we will see how this works. I have my doubts but we will do our best 🤷♀️At least I will be home for the majority of the “school day”. Good luck to all you parents working full time!
So are the school buses not running so they are out of work also?
Tony Batista already done
Is there a breakdown of which board members voted which way?
I hope their going to bus my kids to their practices after "school"
Teachers juggle lots of things in a day.
How about the kids with iep and special classes? Ur taking that away from them! No child left behind my ass! Further more what a out the high school kids that go to votech? I cant take off work to run them back n forth and school my younger one and work 40 hrs.!
I would just like to say this to all the parent in Exeter and even parents outside our district and in their own district. Voting for your school board officials is just as important as voting for your local government as it is your President. I ran for the Exeter school board about a year ago and I noticed a lot of people complained outside of meetings at games at school events, etc. But you didnt show up to a school board meeting to raise hell. Some of you didnt even vote and now you get to reap the benefits of those choices.
I'd also like to add that you should be aware of those who run for office and their expenses paid for by the union.
Rather than someone who paid out of their own pocket, and was never approached by the union at all. Im neither bitter or upset. Im mad as hell that as parents and tax payers, our voices have little to no effect on anything. Some of you are ok with this and many of us are not. Your reasons don't make ours wrong or vice versus. It would be nice if we were heard? I mean after all. We do pay for all of it. The school, the salaries, the pensions, everything. Remember this come the next elections. Thats all I am suggesting
Thank you for sharing the results.
Proud of our board making the tough decision to put the health of our teachers, students, and community first. This season is temporary, but the long lasting effects of illness may not be. We are a people made to adapt, and our children will see how we respond to this change. I am by no means minimizing the childcare difficulties, but I have had to change my family’s entire childcare arrangements since COVID, and we are taking each change to work and childcare one step at a time.
And Exeter township approved this message
And, are we going to get a break on our taxes??? Of course not, they are going up!!! Such 💩!!! 🙄🥴
For those asking: Hearing against, Fidler abstained, Ahrens absent (vacation) but later joined the workshop meeting and said he supported the superintendent.
So my 6 year old is going to magically sit through 6 hours of online instruction when he cant sit thru a 30 zoom call with preschool! This is so upsetting for working parents!
So, do we get a tax break for those first 9 weeks?
I see both sides of the coin. I watched and listened to Dr. Minor in the video and I thought it was well thought out and presented. The word “risk” was mentioned. Minimize the risk, eliminate the risk. Keeping kids out of school because of Covid does not minimize the risk anymore than school shooting risk has been minimized.
For those that feel this will eliminate the risk I ask you all to stay home. Do not go to target, do not go to giant, do not hike on a trail that others might be on and put someone else at risk. Do not expect others to do their job for you. If those that voted in favor can eliminate contact with people, all people, for the next nine weeks then I stand behind the decision. Otherwise it’s just nonsense. I was to believe the risk was already minimized but putting things in place. Guess not. And of course the question it always comes down to...where’s the money. The money for a disciplinarian with no students, school nurse with no students, on and on. I believe that people are sick and dying, no doubt. But the numbers just don’t support this. I wish us all well.
Exeter EMA: Today's storms damaged Shelbourne Road (Kerr to Constitution) and Painted Sky Road (Near Trout Run). It is unclear when these roads will re-open and may remain closed for tomorrow's (Wednesday) morning commute. Please see www.exetertownship.com for updates. ... See MoreSee Less
would be nice at the intersection of Shelbourne and 422 to have a sign stating its closed at Wingspread, so if your tying to go further down, you don't have to turn around and go all the way back to 422.
Where’s my tax refund. My tax dollars paid to use Shelboure road 365 days a year.
Shelbourne is a state maintained rd, call Penndot.
You guys know these roads flood and you still don’t do anything about them is are tax dollars to fix them the right way this shit should not be happening every time it rains
I vote we raise the entire road six feet off the ground. That aughta do it.

At this point some older kids want to be in school. Mine does. This really set her back emotionally.
Open the damn schools up no different than a f****** kid having a flu or lice or bed bugs these guys don't go through these precautions when you have any of these come up you just send a letter home or email or a phone call stating that somebody had the flu or bed bugs or lice in the classroom and to check your child so why can't we do the same damn thing for the Coronavirus
Children need social interaction. All this nonsense for a virus with 99.9% survival rate.
My kids are sick and tired of being home too.
What if the people who pay for the school, and pay the teachers and pay the administration actually had a say in what happens for their kids?
That would be amazing!
I don't see the schools paying for somebody to come to my house and watch my child so she can do virtual learning while I go to work. open up the school so the people that do work and can't come home for the whole day while their kid does virtual learning or send us checks to pay for babysitters. There's a reason why most parents send their kids to a freaking public school or any type of school is because that is their form of daycare while they're at work.
I already know how this meeting is going to go....
Not sure how it’s safe enough for day care to be open but not school. Either it’s not safe and day care should be closed, or it is safe, and both should be open.
I know everyone has diff views and I am not knocking anyone personally...however, having said that...the virus is said to have a 99% survival rate...are any of the children worth the 1%? Who ever wants to place their child in that 1%, by all means do so...my family is worth more, so Im happy with the decision...I would rather they be upset with not socializing than to never socialize again...wont gamble with the life of my loved ones regardless of any reason..just my own feelings on the matter
I would like to see teachers working from their classrooms instead of at home. They would naturally be social distanced and in a safe position to teach. All of their resources would be available. Let’s use the buildings for our staff even if students cannot attend.I also appreciate school districts that implemented virtual teaching dress codes as well as required teachers to be available the entire school day. My kids had too many teacher videos and zoom meetings with teachers on their sofas in hoodies with kids running around in the background. They also had teachers who only posted 2 hours of “office time” for an entire week.
Virtual vs in-person aside...I think we should look at adding a break in the day that is consistent for all children below HS level. Lots of families with multiple GS ages that could use a common lunch/recess time, as well as a longer screen break for all kids. Just my two cents
Someone in this group has all the answers! Sheeesh.
I have watched adults who don’t understand the meaning of social distancing and wearing a mask.. how can you expect the kids to.. and if they did that would be great!! Maybe they could teach some of the parents. However, why put a child in that situation.
My kids Goto the Morgan school in which they are offering a program there I believe. I pay over 650$ week for 3 kids. But even care.com has sitters for 35$ day
Was on the fence about sending her but she really wants to go and is not a good online student. So, totally unsure how this virtual school is going to work with working full time. All virtual schools I looked at required a full time parent to watch over them. Then saw were dealing with the crumby schoology again. It better be 100x better than the crap we saw in the spring.
This is why there won’t be any in person school until there’s a vaccine . Back to school in Georgia
I’m glad most stay at home moms are happy with this. How about a single parent that has to work! Now you raise school taxes and tell people to pay for year round daycare?
No all districts should not do the same. This is not a one size fits all situation. Each town needs to decide for themselves.
I like Bethlehem proposal I read a while ago. Everyone does online learning on Monday's. Tuesday and Thursday last name A-L goes to school. Then M-Z goes on Wednesday and Friday.
Why can't a schedule like this be accomplished.
Depriving our children, especially seniors of school learning and experiences. Just wrong
Amazing thing with a virus with a 99.7% survival rate and 0 children died between the ages 1-17. The Politics of this are harming our children more than the virus. The Flu is much more of a risk to our students and teachers. Check the Numbers if you can see through your bias.
