Keeping Our Community Safe
Here are some important steps your family can take each day to help keep you and our community safe.
Complete the Daily Health Check
Respond to the brief health questionnaire every morning before going to school.
This screening is required by NY State and must be completed every morning before coming to school buildings. The questionnaire will be delivered to you automatically via email and text message and will take 1-2 minutes to complete. Learn more about the daily screening.
Wear a Mask
All students and community members must wear a face mask or covering when in school buildings. Face coverings must be adequate (2-3 ply woven cotton and securely cover the face from the nose to the chin without any gaps). Gaiters, vented masks and bandanas are not permitted. Here are some helpful guides on masks:
- All About Masks via Dear Pandemic
- How to wear a fabric mask safely via the World Health Organization
- How to Select, Wear, and Clean Your Mask via the CDC
Keep Your Child Home if They Feel Sick
If your child is exhibiting symptoms of illness, please keep them home from school. If your child develops symptoms while at school, arrange for them to be picked up promptly.
Commit to Healthy Habits In and Out of School
Wash and sanitize hands often, wear masks covering your nose and mouth in public, cough and sneeze into your elbow, and maintain physical distancing.
In addition, we strongly urge all community members to get flu shots this year.
