Subject:     Unconscionable Denial of Accommodations

Your “Human” Resources Department has refused accommodations, not only for teachers, who in good conscience should be allowed to receive them, but also those with medical conditions that are covered under the CDC guidelines.


Our Labor Relations Specialists have been in contact with your staff in “Human” Resources and Mr. Kuzma for months regarding these issues.


Once again, we are forced to take legal action against the District to protect the about fifteen (15) to twenty (20) teachers, we know of, who have been callously denied an accommodation thereby risking their lives.


What will you say to the family of a teacher, or other staff member, who dies as a result of your callousness, as did the teacher in the enclosed article (Click Here).
