Leroy and Ellie shocked all ATRs with an email saying that the severance papers are ready to be signed and filed.

In other words, as Shakespeare put it so well in his play "Macbeth":

"Lady Macbeth:
Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!—One; two: why, then
'tis time to do't.—Hell is murky.—Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier, and
afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our
pow'r to accompt?—Yet who would have thought the old man to
have had so much blood in him?"
Macbeth Act 5, scene 1, 26–40

I say,

Subject: Severance program for ATRs

Dear    Joe,
As you likely know, if you were in the ATR pool as of June 1, 2014, you are eligible for the ATR severance program that is part of the recently ratified collective-bargaining agreement between the UFT and the Department of Education.
Please read the form carefully. It must be notarized, and you must submit the form in person at 65 Court Street. A walk-in center will be prepared to accept it from you and give you a time-stamped receipt.
The DOE will begin to accept severance forms on Thursday, July 3, 2014. The deadline for submission of the form is 5 p.m. on Monday, August 4, 2014.
Please note that the form cannot be submitted before July 3. If you submit it before then, your severance will not be processed and you will have to submit the form again.
Please also note that by accepting this severance, and as described on the ATR Voluntary Severance Agreement and Release Form, you are waiving any claims against the DOE, including but not limited to lawsuits, grievances or appeals.
If you have questions, please direct them to the DOE or your UFT borough office.
