Dedicated to excellence in education

From the Superintendent's Desk

  • Dear Resident,

    On Monday, September 21, we will welcome the return of athletics to Roy-Hart in the  “low/ moderate risk” sports of cross country, golf, boys and girls soccer and field hockey.  There are several guidelines and restrictions established by the Niagara Orleans league to ensure the safety of our athletes, coaches and spectators.  Some of these guidelines include allowing no more than two spectators per athlete, no student sections at home events and no bleachers or team benches will be available for our sports teams and spectators.

    We will implement mandatory health screenings, including temperature checks of athletes and coaches before every practice, home game, and before traveling to a contest off school grounds. In accordance with NYSDOH and NYSPHSAA Return to Interscholastic Athletics guidance,  coaches will ensure a distance of at least six feet among individuals at all times, unless safety or the core activity (e.g. practicing, playing) requires a shorter distance.  Coaches, trainers, athletes, staff and other individuals who are not directly engaged in physical activity are required to wear a face covering at all times. 

    Please be patient with us as we navigate through these challenging times for everyone. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the Athletic Director, John Grzymala, at 735-2000 ext. 5223 or email

    As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out to me directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski

    Dr. Hank Stopinski

    Superintendent of Schools
