This is a link to a one question survey about MEA members having received their COVID vaccination. Please take a moment to complete it so that we may have current information about how many of our members have been able to obtain a vaccination. The survey will be open until Wednesday, March 24th at 5pm.
If you are in need of help in getting a vaccination appointment please refer to the email sent out last Saturday, March 13th with information about the Marlborough parent who is willing to schedule an appointment for anyone that needs the help and doesn't have the time to be online for hours trying to schedule. If you need her email again please reach out to me and I will pass it along (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The MTA has asked local presidents to forward this link to members. It is a petition to call on Governor Baker to push back the reopening of schools to students full-time to at least April 26th. The MTA is hoping to have 10,000 signatures for this petition in the next 10 days. Please take a look at it and sign if you are in agreement.
Call on Governor Baker to Schedule the Full-Time Reopening of Our Schools on April 26 – And Not Before - Action Network
Just another reminder about the PCR testing that is available at all the schools. Talk with your school nurse about scheduling a weekly test. The PCR testing is available to all teachers for the remainder of the school year.
Any member that was interested in having a face shield available to them should have let one of your building reps know by the end of today. If you did not do that, please do this by Friday so the order can be put in soon.
Eboard elections will happen in the spring. If you are interested in running for an office, you need to contact Jess Hey (email@example.com) by April 1st to let her know what position you are interested in running for. Positions on the ballot are President, Vice President, Treasurer, Membership Chair, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary and Webmaster.
Some have asked about notes from the Labor Management Committee meetings. The committee has had two meetings so far this year. The majority of the discussions have been COVID related and the information had already been disseminated by building reps from Eboard meetings. There is a meeting next week and notes from this meeting will be forwarded to the membership.
Enjoy the upcoming weekend!
