We hope that everyone has remained healthy and that you have a chance to enjoy a few well-deserved weeks of relaxation. We expect that all of you have been following with great interest the news related to schools’ reopening nationwide and here in NYS.
Last Thursday, we finally received the reopening guidance from Governor Cuomo and the State Education Department. The 145 page document is comprehensive in scope and we believe that, if followed, represents a roadmap for returning students, teachers, and staff to school as safely as possible. District compliant plans must be submitted to NYSED by July 31st. The Governor plans to announce the status of school openings the first week in August.
As the administration and our reopening committees dive deeply into the requirements, and make plans for meeting them, we are interested in your input to help us in this planning process. Of paramount importance in our planning is the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.
Access to parent surveys for Burton Street, Cazenovia Middle School, and Cazenovia High School have been emailed to parents/guardians of students registered in the school district.
Your responses to these brief surveys are essential information for our planning process for reopening. Your responses at this time do not commit your family to a specific course of action. We ask that you complete the brief survey for EACH ONE OF YOUR CHILDREN by Friday, July 24th in order to best help us in our planning.
If you have not received an email from the District with access to the parent surveys, please contact one or more of the following school personnel:
Burton Street Elementary: Principal, Kara May
Middle School: Principal, Amy Getman-Heringshaw
Cazenovia High School: Principal, Molly Hagan
Cazenovia, Superintendent of Schools
