Monday September 13th is the first day of school for our public school children. All school staff are required to get vaccinated against the COVID virus or be tested every week to prove they are negative for the virus. All Students over the age of twelve also should be vaccinated. That way everyone in our schools can be safe of the COVID virus. As for our School Safety officers, 'Well they are transitioning from the NYPD to the DOE, and I can't tell you when that will be done. Who do you think I am Joe Biden?
As far as getting everyone vaccinated there will be a new strain of the virus called Delta- Plus that will be here in time for the first day of school, and for your Thanksgiving table there will be another strain of the virus arriving from South Africa, called C.1.2. We haven't told you about these new variants because we didn't want to panic you, but if everyone is vaccinated there should be nothing to worry about.
