BUILDING SAFETY: YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE IN THE BUILDING

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

  • Masks: Masks must be worn at all times by all adults and students in the building.
  • 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.  
  • Social Distancing: Social distancing is required at all times. Please maintain social distancing between families during drop-off and pickup. Parents are not allowed to enter the building.
  • 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 for a minimum of 14 days 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.

TECHNOLOGY: GETTING A DEVICE AND INTERNET ACCESS

We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days. 

  • If your student needs a laptop or tablet, fill out the Device Request Form to reserve your device. Borrowing a device is free!
  • 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. 
  • If you are not able to get internet hooked up in your home, your child's teacher will work with you to provide alternative offline assignments.
