Dear Governor McKee,

The Rhode Island Federation of Teachers and Health Professionals understands and strongly supports the need for students to be in the classroom every day. In fact, attendance is the single biggest factor in student achievement. For the better part of the past two years our members, like all other Rhode Islanders, have had every aspect of their lives disrupted by the consequences of Covid-19.
