Returning to in-person learning must be done safely.

Share This Article...

NYSUT supports returning to in-person learning in our schools, but any return must be done safely.

We are advocating for: 

  • Vaccines available for all teachers
  • COVID tests for all teachers, school staff and students
  • Common-sense safety measures such as masks, social distancing, sanitized classrooms and proper hygiene requirements in schools

We want any return to schools to be done the right way so our state's teachers, school staff and students — as well as their families — can feel safe and secure.
