Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
As you may be aware, it is being reported that there are significant increases in the number of people being diagnosed with COVID-19, admitted to hospitals and regrettably, dying from the disease. As a District, we are doubling our efforts to maintain all of the recommended protocols included in our reopening plan. We continue to work closely with the Niagara County Department of Health and our regional school districts.
In order for the District to remain open, our entire community must continue to abide by the guidance being provided by our Department of Health. Recently, there was a change in guidance for those who are traveling to and from New York State. This guidance can be found on the New York State Department of Health website entitled “COVID-19 Travel Advisory.” I encourage anyone who is considering whether or not to travel during the upcoming holiday season to please review and abide by the guidance provided. Together, we can work together to keep our schools open.
Finally, please continue the use of masks, physical distancing and handwashing as much as possible, and closely monitor your children as we enter the cold and flu season. When in doubt, please keep your child home and visit your child’s pediatrician. Our school website has many tools to assist in navigating when or when not to send your child to school.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out to me directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
