We feel it is very important that the safety of our children and faculty is priority during treacherous weather conditions. We believe Bill de Blasio and the Board Of Education feel that money takes precedence over the safety of lives. We know each day a child attends school they receive certain amount of money for each child in attendance daily. I the Petitioner can tell you my experience during treacherous weather conditions:

1: Shortage of Faculty because most of the teachers are from Long Island, Westchester, Rockland County and ETC.
2: My children had to be placed in different classrooms to accommodate the lack of faculty.
3: When put into different classrooms they were taught how to watch Disney Movies. There was no curriculum was set in place during times of this nature because of lack of faculty.
We feel if private NYC schools and NJ schools can close so can the NYC Public schools be closed. Why do we have to wait the last minute to be informed of closings when you know you are not closing them anyway? What will it take for you Mayor de Blasio to have a conscience? Would it take a horrible tragedy? Please do the right thing for your city. We voted for you thinking that you would not be a carbon copy of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg. We understand we might not all the times see eye to eye on situations however; we feel you should have had our children’s best interest taken into account. Hopefully in the future when treacherous weather affects us your conscience will make the right decision for our children’s safety.
