In continuance of his video discussions with various leaders throughout Westchester during the Covid-19 pandemic, County Executive George Latimer will host a Facebook Live conversation with Community Mental Health Deputy Commissioner Joe Glazer, Ossining Union Free School District Superintendent Dr. Ray Sanchez & White Plains School District Superintendent Dr. Joe Ricca. Glazer and Ricca are Co-Chairs of Latimer’s newly formed School Reopening Working Group and Sanchez is the former President of the Lower Hudson Council of School Superintendents.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, Westchester County Government has worked closely with local school districts across the County to provide assistance and public health support to protect our schools, teachers, staff and most importantly our students. In order to create a more streamlined process as Westchester County School Districts prepare for the fall, the County has established a working group designed to further provide information and support around the areas of public health, emergency preparedness and response. The goal of the task force is to help create a more efficient way to provide feedback for common issues that may arise such as: the bulk purchasing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), suggesting vendors for Plexiglas dividers and signage, offering assistance with contact tracing, and developing a standardized frequently asked questions document.
