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.
