Teachers union leaders across the Hudson Valley have signed an open letter, saying to create truly safe reopening plans, districts need more time, direction and resources as they prepare to open in the fall.
Clarkstown, White Plains and Greenburgh-North Castle school districts have opted to have their students to fully remote learning in September.
The letter calls for specific safety measures to be put in place before children come back to class, like upgrading HVAC systems and proper ventilation, providing quick and adequate COVID-19 tests and PPE and guaranteeing sufficient staff.
The Yonkers Federation of Teachers tells News 12 it believes starting the school year off remotely is the best way to go as the Yonkers Central School District continues to work on its plan.
Samantha Rosado-Ciriello, the association's president, says the Yonkers Board of Education will come down with a decision on Wednesday on their reopening plan.
