Good morning parents and fellow educators –
I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy amid these challenging times. I’m reaching out with a quick note to encourage you to do one small thing that will benefit our children and our community for the next decade. And that is to complete your 2020 Census.
Due to last minute changes by the U.S. Census Bureau, our residents’ right to be counted is in jeopardy. Most recently, the Bureau shortened the deadline to midnight on Thursday, October 15.
A census undercount means cuts for Title I schools and school food programs, cuts for firefighters and first responders, less road funding, and reduced access to health care. It also fundamentally changes our political representation.
It is critical that all of our voices are heard. If our children are not counted in the census it will negatively impact them for the next decade – in many cases, an entire childhood.
Please join us and do your part to make sure everyone is counted!
The 2020 Census is happening now. You can complete your questionnaire online, by phone, or by mail.
The 2020 Census asks a few simple questions about you and everyone who was living with you on April 1, 2020.
Please complete your form online, by phone, or by mail when your invitation to respond arrives. Visit my2020census.gov to begin.
