Puyallup teachers will be in class to prepare on Monday in order to welcome special education students on Tuesday.
PUYALLUP, Wash — Some Puyallup teachers will be back in their classrooms Monday as they prepare for the return of special education students.
Those students will head back to the classroom Tuesday, but the union that represents the more than 1,400 teachers in the district said they have some concerns about returning students and staff to classrooms.
“We are very concerned about the (personal protective equipment), and that’s a concern that we had on Friday,” said Puyallup Education Association President Karen McNamara. “There has been some emailing back and forth this weekend.”
Teachers will be in the classroom on Monday without students, but the union wants to make sure all the pieces are in place to keep everyone safe, which includes making sure there is enough personal protective equipment.
