🔸We Need You: Regional Enrichment Centers 🔸
.
Dear Colleagues,
.
As we all grapple with the issues raised by the #COVID19 virus, there is one thing that is crystal clear—that in an emergency like the one we are facing, we all need to pull together. We have a responsibility to our neighbors, our communities, and our city. And I’m writing today to ask for your help.
.
In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why we’ve created Regional Enrichment Centers, places where the children of these front-line workers can be cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need. We’re calling on all staff to assist in staffing these centers—because the fellow New Yorker whose child you care for could be the same one who saves the life of someone you care about in the days or weeks ahead. .
We know all of you have important tasks to do, and that many of you’re supporting students with remote learning. We also know that many of you have the option of working from home, and I certainly can understand why that could feel preferable. But these are extraordinarily challenging times that demand that we all rise to our calling: to serve the children and families of NYC. Please consider stepping up for an essential role to ensure that the children of our uniform services, health care workers, transit employees, and other essential personnel have a safe and caring environment in which to stay while their parents fulfill their own critical roles for NYC.
.
I don't ask this lightly, and I know this is a time of profound personal challenge for all of us. But we need YOU. Please complete this survey as soon as possible to volunteer [on.nyc.gov/33tA4Dg], and let us show the entire city—and the nation—that we will rise to the occasion, no matter how difficult. For questions, reach out to stayinghealthy@schools.nyc.gov.
.
I often say that NYC has the best staff and students in the world. Together, let’s show our health care providers and first responders that we have their back, just as they have ours.
.
In unity,
Richard A. Carranza
