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.
