Today, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) issued the following statement on the Governor's decision to allow schools to reopen:
It’s important children return to school safely to restore some sense of normalcy. Our children benefit greatly socially and emotionally from seeing their friends and teachers. Learning is improved in the classroom, and stress and worry will be lifted from parents who have been dealing with the challenges of distance learning. With this said, we must monitor infection rates closely, and all schools must have the proper guidance, Personal Protective Equipment, and plans in place if infection rates should change. The safety of our students and educators are front and center."
