CTU members returning to buildings are reporting dust, uncleaned spills, rodent droppings and a lack of PPE, hand sanitizer, signage, social distance markings and plexiglass. No way CPS would have been ready for 400,000+ people in schools next week.…
“It was obvious that my classroom was never ‘deep cleaned.’ For example, the students’ chairs still had crumbs and milk spills on them. The room was covered in a layer of dust.”
“[Custodians] were told last year ’10 minutes per room.’ They don’t have time for their regular duties, much less the enhanced cleaning protocol. Aramark won’t change anything. CPS won’t do anything either. I’m afraid I’ll die if we go back during COVID-19.”
“I worked this summer because I am a single parent who simply needs to earn extra money when possible. That’s just the fact. My concern is that CPS has not set up the office with the proper PPE. If we were starting Sept. 8 with students, it’s obvious we were not a priority."
"I have three kids—two have asthma. I have high blood pressure. It’s upsetting that we work so hard and we really love our jobs, schools, families, community. Yet it feels like we are no one to CPS. Cashiers have plexiglass protectors. But CPS clerks had to work without theirs?”
“Dirty vents, no floor signage, no disinfectant wipes provided by CPS, staff not obeying the six foot distance requirements. A single pen for completing health screener form used between employees. No 6’ distance signs by main office.”
“We have not received PPE, and school registration is taking place over the next few days. We have thousands of students at school, with each grade level having a designated registration day over the next three days.”
“Throughout the 2019-20 school year, I successfully completed my duties remotely. Now, I’ve been asked to risk my safety by interacting with hundreds of students to complete tasks that can be done remotely.”
“When I was cleaning out my desk, it was full of rodent droppings.”
"If the city can shut down restaurants and clubs, can they shut down schools that are COVID non-compliant?"
