On April 9, 2021, the New York State Department of Health issued updated guidance regarding in-person instruction for school districts (the “Guidance”). Pursuant to the Guidance, prior to the District making any changes to reduce physical distancing to less than six feet between students during academic instruction, decisions must be made with community input. The Guidance permits Districts to reduce physical distancing requirements to a minimum of three feet between students in classroom settings, subject to adherence to certain mitigation measures. In order for the District to accommodate such reduction in physical distancing in classrooms, the District would be required to amend its Reopening Plan. Thus, we request input regarding your child’s method of learning in the event physical distancing in classrooms is reduced to three feet for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. In the next day or two you will receive access to a form (either on-line or by mail depending on building), to notify us of your decision regarding your child’s method of learning for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year in the event physical distancing requirements are reduced and the District’s Reopening Plan is amended. Thank you #RamResolve

NYS DOH Update - Survey Following the lead of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the state Department of Health has issued a new version of school guidance that permits students to be as little as three feet apart from each other, with certain exceptions. The state guidance also says: "The CDC no longer recommends physical barriers for mitigation where physical distancing cannot be maintained. A preferred approach is enhanced ventilation and air filtration to dilute and remove any SARS-Cov-2 particles from the air." Consistent with prior guidance, face masks that meet guidelines are required for all people in school "at all times, except for meals," with exceptions for individuals with medical or mental health reasons for not wearing a mask. On school buses, individuals "must wear an acceptable mask at all times" including entering, exiting and while being seated. One exception to the new three-foot standard involves counties with a high risk of transmission. In those counties, "elementary schools can maintain physical distancing of at least three feet between students in classrooms … However, in middle and high schools three feet between students in classrooms is recommended only when schools can use cohorting." Cohorts are defined as "self-contained, pre-assigned groups of students with reasonable group size limits set forth by the school in their plan." The guidance says cohorting can be an effective way to minimize the potential spread of the virus, particularly among younger students. The guidance states that a minimum of six feet of distance must be maintained at all times between all adults (teachers, staff and visitors) and between students and adults. Six feet is also the rule in all common areas (e.g. lobbies, auditoriums, gymnasiums, cafeterias and hallways) – "where possible." Six feet of distance must also be maintained when students are not wearing a mask, including eating, drinking and playing a wind instrument, according to detailed rules listed on pages 6, 7 and 8 of the guidance. "This may mean that meals cannot be eaten in classrooms that have been converted to three feet of physical distance during instruction time," the guidance notes.   Also, students must be six feet from others when singing, and the phraseology of the document suggests this is regardless of whether they are wearing a mask. "There must be six feet of distance between the performers and the audience during performances and concerts," according to the guidance.

The U.S. Department of Education chose not to approve New York’s waiver request to forego state assessments this year. USDE had previously agreed to uncouple state assessments from ESSA accountability requirements, including the 95% participation rate for the assessments, so any results from this year’s administrations will be used solely as a measure of student learning. The Department will administer only Session 1 of the grades 3-8 assessments in Mathematics and ELA and only the written test component of the Grades 4 and 8 Science Tests. Additionally, only the Regents Examinations required under ESSA will be given during the June 2021 administration, which are the ELA, Algebra 1, Earth Science and Living Environment Exams. The August 2021 Regents Exams are cancelled. The New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) and New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) are being administered according to the established schedules for those students who are able to safely come into school and take the assessments.
