We have put safety procedures in place to keep our students and staff healthy. 

  • Masks are voluntary: Only students who return to school after COVID must wear a mask for a prescribed number of days.
  • Handwashing: Students and staff are expected to wash hands thoroughly before and after eating, after using the bathroom, if exposed to body fluids (like saliva or a sneeze), and at other times necessary throughout the day.  
  • Air filters: High quality devices have been installed in every classroom and commonly used space
  • Illness: Students and staff exhibiting signs of illness or having a fever of greater than 99.9°F must stay home and notify the school. If you or someone you know has COVID-19 (or shows symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing or fever), it is required that you quarantine and notify the school.
  • Directions for local COVID testing: Please visit the NYS Coronavirus Find a Test Site page to find a test site closest to you.


We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to Google Classroom.

  • If your child at Anderson needs a laptop or tablet, please notify the school. 
  • If your children experience internet-connectivity issues with their iPads, they can request help through the Technical Support for Families form.
  • Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location.
