Mr. Aris,

I apologize for the delay in responding to your FOIL request below.  Please be advised there are no documents responsive to your request below. 

Please be advised that the District has posted information for the community since September 24, 2018 on the Yonkers Public Schools website.

Jerilynne Fierstein, Records Access Officer

THE TAKEAWAY IS THAT THE RESPONSE IS NOT ONLY DECEPTIVE, BUT A TOTAL LIE. How could there be no records of the mold, and even if there were “pertinent” updates posted on the YPS District website that specifically responded to this FOIL request, why were they not sent as requested through the FOIL Request inquiry? Such is the deceit promulgated and permitted under the aegis of Yonkers Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Edwin Quezada and Yonkers Board of Education Trustee President Rev. Steve Lopez.

The name of the entity / government agency which so identified these conditions at Paideia School 15 of Yonkers.

 If it was not a Yonkers government agency who so identified this mold problem, advise the date which the outside government agency found and so identified the problem to the either or both the Yonkers Superintendent Dr. Edwin Quezada and Yonkers Board of Education Trustee President Rev. Steve Lopez, among others who were noticed of this issue.

The date of inspection which found the mold at this school. The documents pertaining to the notification of any and all government / private entities responsible for the remediation of the problem, to include evacuation plans for the students, medical evaluation of students, if found to be necessary, and the beginning and end times for remediation and return of the students to a safe environment at the Paideia School 15 of Yonkers.

I write to you as the FOIL officer and trust that it is your responsibility to forward this request to any and all Board of Education agencies responsible for keeping the requested records, i.e. “SchoolDude”, the Districtwide Emergency Management Plan, Buildings and Grounds, et al.

If my request appears to be extensive or fails to reasonably describe the record(s), please contact me in writing via whyteditor@gmail.com, or by phone at 347-415-4326.

If there are any fees for copying the record(s) requested, please inform me before filling the request.

As you know, the Freedom of Information Law requires that an agency respond to a request within five business days of receipt of a request. Therefore, I would appreciate a response within this timeframe. If for any reason any portion of my request is denied, please inform me of the reasons for the denial in writing and provide the name and address of the person or body to whom an appeal can be directed.

Sincerely,

  1. Hezi, file an appeal denial of access and cc the NY State. Then send a request for the salary of Jerilynne Fierstein, Records Access Officer. I thought she had retired, so let me guess she’s on a pension and getting paid by YBOE also. Is she a duble dipper?

  2. All of the records and documents including mold and inspections are in John Carr’s office with copies in Quezada and Lopez’s dirty little hands. They sit at Dia noche plotting how to cover up and outmaneuver the School 15 community.

  3. I am not shocked about any of this. Firestein has been around for a hundred years because of the vicious, wicked pit bull that she is. She takes orders from no one but Quezada and has sold her dark soul to the devil.
