Right now-masks are still required inside school.

A message from Superintendent Brady regarding masks.

Dear community members:

At this time, this communication is written to clarify that there has not been any official legal change in the mask mandate from the New York State Education Department, New York State Department of Health or Governor Cuomo.

The June 4th letter by Health Commissioner Zucker reported by the media on Friday was written to the CDC to determine if the CDC has any objection to relaxing its mask mandate. However, unless and until written guidance or an Executive Order is issued by the State, all students, staff and visitors must wear masks while on school property.

As of Wednesday, June 9th, the outdoor mask requirement has been lifted. Those students and staff who want to continue to wear masks outside are welcomed to do so.

If we receive direction from the State that changes the mask wearing requirements within the school, we will promptly communicate the change to our staff, students and parents.

Thank you for your continued patience with this difficult school year.

All students attending in person must complete the health screening app.

Just a reminder that each student needs to have a “Daily screening form” filled out BEFORE coming into the school.

We have three options:

  • Download + fill out the app-->,
  • This is also a link to an online version of the app http://bit.ly/JWLScreen,
  • Children can get the pink forms from the nurse to bring in each day.

If there are any questions regarding this procedure please call the office 315-764-3720 or the nurse (Nurse Gilman) at 315-764-3720 ext. 3203.

Wednesday, the Governor announced a new incentive for 12-17 year olds. Any individual aged 12-17 that receives their first dose by July 7th is eligible for a chance to win one of 50, four-year full-ride scholarships (includes tuition, room and board, books and supplies) to any New York State public college or university. This applies to students whom have already been vaccinated as well.


Thank you all for your help and efforts with vaccinating this population.

Kind Regards,
