Coronavirus Updates and Information

Closing of Schools for the Remainder of the 2019-20 School Year
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Friday, May 1, 2020, that the state’s schools and colleges
will remain closed for the remainder of the academic year and will continue distance learning to
curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak. Childcare, food service, and remote learning will be maintained.


While there is currently no vaccine to prevent this virus, these simple steps can help stop the spread of this and other respiratory viruses:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

• Stay home when you are sick.

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

•FFCRA will help the United States combat and defeat COVID-19 by reimbursing American private employers that have fewer than 500 employees with tax credits for the cost of providing employees with paid leave taken for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The legislation will ensure that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus, while at the same time reimbursing businesses.

We will continue to remind our staff and students to "cover their cough" with a tissue or sleeve (not their hands) and wash hands frequently. Also, and as always, if your child is exhibiting flu symptoms, such as fever and a cough, please do not send them to school and make sure to schedule an appointment with your physician.

As always, we appreciate your support and concern to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and families. The health and safety of our community remains our high priority
