Community Support Letter for TRO/OSC Regarding COVID Testing and Remote Schooling from 1/3 to 1/18/2022
Sorry, everyone. Looks like we broke the Internet and Jotform is refusing to accept any more signatures. Time to switch to our old friends at Google Forms. – Lydia Howrilka
Yesterday, I filed an Article 78 proceeding in NYC Civil Court protesting the reopening of NYC schools without adequate testing, mitigation measures, and allowing for a pivot of instruction to remote for January 3 to January 18, 2022. I have submitted the legal documents- a petition, a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), an affidavit, an Order to Show Cause (OSC), and a Request for Judicial Intervention (RJI)- and I am waiting for a judge to be assigned to our case.
Many folks have been reaching out and want to know how they can help. A collective letter that we can send to the court with as many signatures as possible would be the best next step for members who want to support.
Please click here and complete this form to e-sign the letter.
Important note- No teacher has been disciplined for signing a petition or letter when they are not on contracted time. It is not illegal to sign a letter or petition either. Your signature will only be seen by Lydia, the judge, and the City’s Corporation Counsel.
