Rochester, NY – As Rochester prepares to enter phase one of New York State’s coronavirus recovery plan, many have raised questions about what businesses and workers should be considered essential.
The Rochester City School District wasted no time letting the public know their answer.
“We would like to reiterate that all teachers should be considered unessential.” An official for the district said during an impromptu press conference on Zoom.
“We believe that the only way to balance the budget and keep your children safe, is to make sure no teachers step foot into our schools for the foreseeable future.”
The district was already facing a massive budget deficit prior to the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
