“During a time when New York City is relying on first responders and other frontline workers to help us battle coronavirus, it is unfathomable that the city would close one of the main child care facilities in Staten Island for these families. Parents who dropped off their children this morning at the Regional Enrichment Center at PS/IS 861 in Graniteville learned that the facility would close Monday. They were given no alternative. The City Council was given no notice. On top of the stress these men and women face as part of their life-saving work, they are now being asked to search for new child care so they can continue to serve us. It is cruel, and they deserve better from our city.”
