On Sunday, Feb. 27, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the state mask mandate for schools would end, effective Wednesday, Mar. 2. The district’s School Reopening Task Force will meet on Tuesday, Mar. 1 to discuss the implications of this announcement on school operations in the district. As indicated by Gov. Hochul, there may also be additional guidance for schools at the county level.
As school resumes following mid-winter break, students and staff should continue mask use indoors and on school transportation until more information is provided following Tuesday’s meeting.
