What is PIPE?

PIPE is a group of parents, teachers, school administrators, and others who support and value in-person education for our children.

We believe that in-person education is vitally important and we are committed to pursuing legal and peaceful avenues to stand up for our children and our rights. 

This website is a resource for like-minded parents and individuals to learn and join community efforts to oppose mandated closures schools. 


PIPE was started in response to an order in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, that all

K-12 schools close for in-person learning around the 2020 Thanksgiving Holiday.

  • We support taking a holistic approach to our children's health and education in light of the risks and challenges presented by the pandemic.

  • We support using data and science to establish risk factors and determine mitigation.

  • We support making decisions based on what is known and not on speculation.
