Dear parents and guardians,
I regret to have to inform you that I, the Superintendent of Schools of the City School District of New Rochelle, have tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19). I received my results at 10:20 a.m. I was tested on Monday, March 16, 2020.
According to my doctor, I must be quarantined for two weeks from that date. President Moselhi will be quarantined too given her very close proximity to me through this crisis.
Both President Moselhi and I will remain at home through the quarantine period and will continue to commit to the work we are doing in district.
My symptoms are mild and I feel blessed to have the support of family, friends, colleagues and the Board.
I am sharing my results with you because it impacts me and the BOE President, who have been point people for many in the community.
I will ask my cabinet to use their best judgment in terms of being tested and self-quarantined. The district's work will continue and we remain committed to the success of each student.
I am at home, supported and will begin the journey to recovery.
