Safety, Health and Facilities
The safety and health of our students, staff, and their families are our top priority. We want students and employees to feel comfortable and safe returning to school campuses. School buildings must be safe places for students to learn effectively. Having healthy students and staff are not only critical to the education children receive, but also to the teachers and staff who deliver that high-quality education. Our reopening plan incorporates recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection in the District, facilities operations will be geared toward meeting social distancing requirements and cleaning frequently touched spaces regularly. The following protocols and procedures will be in place in all District schools for the 2020-21 school year as we return to in-person schooling.
