MAYOR GLORIA PLEDGES TO KEEP WORKING WITH STAKEHOLDERS TO COMPLETELY REOPEN SCHOOLS
SAN DIEGO – Following his calls for the State to prioritize vaccines for teachers and for districts to begin to reopen schools safely, Mayor Todd Gloria issued this statement about the San Diego Unified School District’s announcement today that schools will reopen in April:
“I want to thank San Diego Unified for providing a clear timeline on getting kids back in the classroom and, more importantly, providing parents with some certainty. This news provides some relief to parents who have had to juggle multiple roles during the pandemic.
“While a hybrid schedule is still difficult for many working families, this represents a step in the right direction. I will keep working with and urging the school district officials, teachers and stakeholders to continue making progress toward getting our kids back in the classroom full time.”
On Feb. 10, Mayor Gloria joined a bipartisan group of big city California mayors to call on the State to prioritize vaccines for school employees.
