BACK TO SCHOOL
No matter what back-to-school looks like for public school students in your community, NYSUT members will take good care of them. It's what we do. Educators and parents are in complete agreement: School districts need to err on the side of caution. NYSUT is working closely with state officials to ensure our members concerns are front and center in all discussions regarding the reopening of schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the value of in-person instruction is undeniable, the safety and well-being of students and staff are paramount. Schools must be safe havens for students; we must not allow them to become environments that foster the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
NYSUT has stressed that any plan to reopen schools is based on the most up-to-date science.
