Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          April 1, 2021


Subject:     Extremely Dangerous Report

Attached (Click Here) is the March 30, 2021 District Log of COVID-19 cases. On one day, seventeen (17) students and three (3) adults, were identified as testing positive for COVID.


If this doesn’t sound alarm bells, what will?


In our March 30, 2021 correspondence, we provided District Logs that showed the following COVID-19 positive tests: March 29, 2021 - 16 students, 7 adults


In just two (2) days, thirty-three (33) students and ten (10) adults tested positive for COVID-19 . Can’t you see that something serious is happening?


Now, from March 15-30, seventy-four (74) BPS students and thirty-three (33) adults have tested positive for COVID-19.


As you refuse to act, more and more students and adults become infected with COVID-19. The impact is not only in our schools but in our community.


What will happen within the weeks after the Spring recess?


Although action should have been taken when we first alerted you, schools should be closed tomorrow even though it’s the last day of school.


Lives and the physical well-being of people are being risked.
