Help us Advocate for Vaccine Access & Rapid Testing

 

Please consider using this template to help Blind Brook advocate for Vaccine Access & Rapid Testing:

In order for Public School Districts across New York State to successfully return to full time in-person learning, we must be able to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of students and staff members.  In addition to mask wearing, physical distancing, ventilation and cleaning protocols, school personnel require access to vaccinations.   

We call on NYS legislators to prioritize immediate access to vaccines for all K-12 staff members to ensure the safe return to full time, in-person learning.

In addition to vaccinations, public school districts require a robust rapid surveillance testing program to continuously monitor the presence of COVID-19 in our schools.  It is financially unsustainable for school districts to be responsible to pay for COVID-19 testing. 

We call on NYS legislators to ensure that public school districts are provided with the logistical and financial support to guarantee random COVID-19 testing of students and staff is sufficient to keep buildings open for full time in-person learning.

Please support public education in New York State by funding expense-based aid that will help our public schools return to full time in-person learning.
