School Reopening Update - 8/7/20

Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that schools across New York State will be allowed to reopen and must work with the SED and DOH as to how that will occur. He also announced a series of next steps for districts to take between now and August 21, including posting separately their remote learning, COVID testing and contract tracing plans, in addition to holding discussions with parents and staff.  With this new information, the Suffern Central School District will take a few days to align its state-mandated reopening plans with Governor Cuomo's directives. Please watch for updates on school day scheduling, instruction, transportation and other critical district operations in the coming days as well as dates for parent and staff discussions to be held.


El gobernador Andrew Cuomo anunció hoy que las escuelas en todo el estado de Nueva York podrán reabrir y deben trabajar con el SED y el DOH en cuanto a cómo ocurrirá eso. También anunció una serie de próximos pasos para que los distritos tomen entre ahora y el 21 de agosto, incluyendo publicar por separado su aprendizaje remoto, pruebas COVID y planes de seguimiento de contratos, además de mantener conversaciones con los padres y el personal. Con esta nueva información, el Distrito Escolar Central de Suffern tardará unos días en alinear sus planes de reapertura obligatorios por el estado con las directivas del gobernador Cuomo. Esté atento a las actualizaciones sobre la programación del día escolar, la instrucción, el transporte y otras operaciones críticas del distrito en los próximos días, así como las fechas para las discusiones de padres y personal que se llevarán a cabo.
