Teachers at P.S. 204 in Morris Heights are expressing frustration over what they say is a lack of instruction on reopening of schools from the Department of Education.
They penned a letter to Schools Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education Richard Carranza to voice their concerns about the hazards of returning back to school.

Teachers tell News 12 they are not even prepared for their first day.

"They're not even blueprints, but they're sketches of what September is going to look like," says third grade teacher at P.S. 204 Lisa Ellis.

Teachers say they want more time to plan for the first day of school and learning the basic layout of their curriculum.

The Department of Education said to News 12 in a statement that they "are the safest and only major city to reopen in person and they'll do so with physical distancing, personal protective equipment and a nurse in every building."
