BTF CALLS FOR DISTRICT TO PROVIDE MORE COVD-19 INFORMATION


The BTF today reiterated its call for the school district to provide teachers and staff with information relating to staff identified as testing positive for or being exposed to the COVID-19 virus.

 

“Teachers and staff continue to raise serious concerns relating to not being informed that a member of its staff has or has been exposed to, the COVID-19 virus.”

 

The BTF has requested that, to ease concerns (fear) and develop trust, “the District can, while protecting privacy, advise the staff, that while a staff member has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, all the following procedures have been followed to ensure your safety”

 

Last week instances were reported at:

School 64 (3)
School 61 (2)
School 74 (1)
School 59 (1)

 

This is in addition to those previously reported at School 45 and School 33.

 

See attached November 6, 2020 correspondence. Note: See October 26, 2020 correspondence where there were false statements made by District representatives (Click Here).

 

“In these difficult and stressful times, the District continues to cause increased stress and distrust. Indeed, it has refused to even respond to the concerns of its staff. It apparently doesn’t care.”, concluded Philip Rumore, President of the Buffalo Teachers Federation.
