COVID-19 Update

June 10, 2021

On Monday, June 7, 2021, Governor Cuomo announced updated mask guidance for schools. There will be no change with indoor mask requirements promulgated by the state. The state has, however, amended guidance regarding outdoor activity. At this time, masks are still required to be worn by students, staff members, and visitors while in school.


Updated Guidance Excerpts

Face Masks

Effective June 7, 2021, face masks are not required to be worn outdoors on school grounds, including during outdoor school sports. No student, staff member, or visitor may be prevented from wearing an acceptable face mask voluntarily on school grounds.


Extracurriculars

Effective June 7, 2021, face masks are not required to be worn outdoors on school grounds, including during outdoor school sports.


The Lockport City School District will follow this updated guidance effective Thursday, June 10, 2021. All indoor mask protocols remain in effect until amended guidance is issued by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).


Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay safe and be well.
