On Tuesday, February 2 our Security Agent, Rosa Linares was removed from our school.
Parents had no notification why this was done and still have no explanation.
As you know we are an elementary school with over 1,000 young children. Agent Linares has been an integral part of our school for 9 years. Her knowledge of the inner workings of our school and the care she takes to know all of the children and parents by name is unrivaled and is very helpful in maintaining the calm and secure atmosphere at our school. She has always been a big help to the administration, teachers and staff as well as PS 24 families. She has never been sick or late her entire time serving our school. She is a vital part of our school community. Agent Linares works very hard and is always very dedicated to the school.
Our school has been through a tumultuous year so far with the loss of our principal and our annex that houses our 5th grade. Our students need and deserve the stability which Agent Linares provided to our students every day.
Please reconsider this decision and reinstate her as soon as possible. The last thing our school needs is an additional element of instability and change in the front door security personnel. Our children miss Rosa already and as the first point of contact at the school her absence is greatly felt.
