The P.E.A. has been made aware of the issues our nursing staff is facing. President McEntee has been in contact with the Superintendent to help shed light on these issues. P.E.A. is working with the District to attempt to ensure that additional nurses are hired. Should more information become available, the P.E.A. will pass it along as soon as possible.
In the meantime, nurses should NOT be used to cover classes for principals that are attempting to provide prep coverage for teachers. Please let your building delegates file a grievance if this is happening.
