JERSEY CITY, NJ - Jersey City’s Chief Prosecutor Jake Hudnut has a special message for students at Primary Prep Elementary School: Be kind.
The words came via a Facebook video Hudnut created for the students.
City employees are still working to keep Jersey City families safe and health, Hudnut said before extending well wishes on behalf of Mayor Steven Fulop.
“We are working closely with police officers and health code inspectors, visiting businesses,” Hudnut said, to make sure that they understand new “rules” that have been established to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. “These rules won’t last forever,” he assured, “but they are keeping us safe and healthy for now.”
As for his warmly delivered directive Hudnut explained that “this is a tough time for everybody” and asked the students to be kind to their siblings, pets, and teachers, whom he praised for “learning overnight a completely new way to teach.”
“If your parent ask you to do a few extra things, like wash your hands or give space to others,” Hudnut said, “it’s important to follow those special rules.”
“They are giving them to you because they love you.”
