Calling On DOE To Shut Down Schools For Two Weeks, States Uptown Council Member Rodriguez (Spanish)

March 14, 2020

I thank Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Corey Johnson and all City Agencies for the work they are doing as we try to control and reduce the spread of COVID-19. Part of those efforts should include making the decision to call for a two week recess to allow for the formation of a task force to gather facts, develop alternatives for delivery of instructions, form partnerships to deliver services and ensure that students, parents, and all school personnel feel protected and supported.

Many teachers, councilors, and school workers have expressed their concerns amidst this pandemic. The City should work on a plan to ensure that all pubic school students who depend on school lunches are still able to receive them while the recess is in place.

There is still much to learn about the Coronavirus and we need to make sure we take all proper precautions to keep our communities safe. I will continue working closely with Speaker Johnson and my colleagues at the Council to ensure all of our public school children remain protected.
