Update on School Reopening in Fall

We would like to provide our school community with an update on the reopening of schools in September 2020.

We want to reassure families that we have been planning for a variety of scenarios for the fall, depending on where we are with the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know that the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff remains our top priority.

The district’s Reorganizing Task Force began its work this week, and have established six committees made up of faculty, administration and parents discussing the following areas.

  • Health and Safety
  • Fiscal, Food and Transportation
  • Social and Emotional
  • Special Programs
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Communications

We will keep our community updated on the Task Force’s work throughout the summer. Our goal is to provide the best possible educational services to the greatest extent possible under the given circumstances.

Schools are also awaiting reopening guidance from New York State, which is expected the week of July 13. School districts will have to submit reopening plans to the State by July 31, with Governor Andrew Cuomo announcing a decision on the reopening of schools during the week of August 1.

We appreciate our community’s patience as we prepare for the upcoming school year. Again, please know that nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of your children.
