Arabic Translation of Petition
- City Schools staff are FULLY VACCINATED before returning to their facility (both doses and waiting period to reach full efficacy).
- VENTILATION UPGRADE WORK IS COMPLETED before any students or staff are brought back into their facility.
- MINIMUM PUBLIC HEALTH METRICS MUST BE MET for at least a week (positivity rate and case rate) before expanding in person programming.
- A robust, reliable and PROACTIVE TESTING PROGRAM FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS, BOTH SYMPTOMATIC AND ASYMPTOMATIC, before expanding in person programming.
City Schools’ current plan of setting an arbitrary reopening date regardless of the public health data and preparedness of our facilities is an irresponsible decision that will jeopardize human life, in particular the lives of our Black and Brown students who disproportionately live in intergenerational homes. Students cannot learn when they, their educators and their families are sick or worse. Students cannot return to pre-pandemic high quality in-person learning if we extend the grip of the pandemic by reopening before it’s safe.
