“I am grateful to our Duarte Unified team members and our collaborators at City of Hope and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health for working quickly together to provide this service. Having the vaccine accessible to our educators will be helpful for the safe return of our students and staff to our buildings,” stated Gordon Amerson, Superintendent of Duarte Unified School District.
“But, I am also proud that this partnership will help the entire community of Duarte and our neighboring school districts and cities. We have long lived by the motto better together, and it is times like these that seeing it in action warms my heart.”
