Dear Batavia Blue Devil Families and Staff The New York Stated Education Department has just issued the following statement to all districts across the state. 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. My apologies for the ongoing confusion but once NYSDOH updates the official guidance we will immediately make the necessary changes. Again, students and staff are expected to remain 100% masked indoors until official guidance changes. Thank you, Anibal Soler, Jr. Superintendent of Schools
