State Ed email to all NYS School Superintendents Sunday afternoon regarding mask wearing: Dear Colleagues, As of September 1, 2020, school districts were permitted to reopen, under Executive Order 202.60, “subject to adherence to Department of Health issued guidance and directives.” These have included the submission of reopening plans to address, among other things, distancing and health requirements. SED has been in communication with Executive staff regarding the attached letter from Dr. Howard Zucker, New York State Commissioner of Health. According to conversations with Executive staff, the intent of this letter was to obtain a response from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding differing standards for summer camps and schools; it has not changed any existing arrangements. Therefore, schools should continue to operate under their existing procedures until further notice. No changes have been, or will be, made by the Executive until after Monday June 7 to afford the CDC an opportunity to respond to the letter. Hammondsport will continue under our current plan and adjust as soon as any new guidance is received.
Annual Vote Results: 21-22 Budget passes 236-26, Voters authorize the bus transportation of all District student 224-34, Bus purchase approved 234-30. Corey Kennedy is elected to a five year term on the Hammondsport Board of Education. Thank you for the excellent voter turnout and for making your voice heard! Go LAKERS!
School budget vote and School Board election tomorrow from 12pm to 8pm in the High School gymnasium. Don't forget about Resolution #3 that will allow all District resident students access to school transportation! No matter how you plan to vote, please just vote! Go Lakers!
