Spartan Nation: Last night, at 8:30 p.m., the NYS Department of Health released official guidance related to mask wearing. Please note - at this time - masks are still required for all when indoor a school facility. The good news is students, staff, and visitors are no longer required to wear masks when outside . This includes outdoor school sports and all outdoor activities. Please see page two of the attached guidance specific to mask wearing. The complete updated guidance can be found at: Interim Guidance 06.07.21 Update Scott
Spartan Nation: The District is excited to learn that New York State will be lifting mask mandates for schools. Please note that the letter issued by health commissioner, Dr. Zucker, on Friday, 06/04/21, does not constitute actual guidance. When making changes likes this, we must formally change our District Reopening Plan. As with so much of the guidance from New York State during this pandemic - press conferences, press releases, or news is shared. The media picks up on this news without fully understanding that actual guidance and new mandates have not yet been released. The change to lessen mask wearing in schools will not go into effect this Monday. The District will wait for details from the NYS Department of Health, will consult with our medical director, will consult with Jefferson County Public Health Services, and will get a pulse for how our families and staff feel about this potential loosening of restrictions. There are many unanswered questions and while I think we are close, the District cannot formally change the Reopening Plan until we've done our due diligence and continue to keep the safety of our students and staff at the forefront of decision making. We are too close to the end of the year to make a quick decision without all the facts. Attached is a letter explaining our position. Thanks in advance for your patience! Scott
