Mask Reminder

We are still required to abide by the New York State Health Department regulations for schools. The NYSHD guidelines mandate that everyone entering the school building is still required to wear a face mask, regardless of vaccination status. Masks need to cover both the nose and mouth at all times except when actively eating or drinking, or outside and socially distanced by six feet.


Let's finish the school year strong with our masks in place!
