2/26/22 Letter To Governor Hochul
Posted on 02/26/2022

Good afternoon.  Last night, the Center for Disease Control and Prevent issued new recommendations for mask wearing.  Unfortunately though, while the new guidance is a welcomed change, the current mask mandate in schools from New York State remains in place.   

As part of the district's advocacy efforts, and in cooperation with the 31 component school districts in the WSWHE BOCES, I have signed onto a letter addressed to Governor Hochul and Health Commissioner Bassett urging New York State to remove the mandate for masking in school facilities and on school buses as soon as possible and before we return from the February recess period.  

If there is any new information or changes in the COVID protocols prior to our return from the February recess period, I will make sure to provide our community with that information as soon as possible.  

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work through this challenging time together.

The following letter was written to Governor Hochul and Commissioner Bassett on behalf of the 31 School Districts of the WSWHE BOCES.
