As essential workers, we know there is an urgent need to ensure the highest levels of safety for students and staff in our schools.
Our Black and Brown communities have been especially ravaged by COVID-19 with the highest rates of infection and death.
As education workers, we know students learn best when they are on campus . We must do everything possible to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff.
That is why we support and encourage vaccination for our entire school community. The vaccine has proven to be the most powerful protection against COVID-19 and the pathway to safely and fully re-opening our schools – and keeping them open.
