    In doing so, it has been decided that the District will shift to a full remote instructional model for all staff and students effective Monday, December 14, 2020 through Monday, January 18, 2021, with an anticipated return to hybrid instruction for blue and gold cohort students on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. This period of time allows for a buffer period before and after winter recess which is scheduled for Wednesday, December 23, 2020 through Friday, January 1, 2021.

    On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced that the state Department of Health created a dashboard system for schools to send the state information on the district's teaching model, the district's onsite and off site enrollment, and the number of possible COVID cases in a school. The purpose of the dashboard is to display real time data points to the school community on a daily basis, and to use the data for making decisions on school closings and reopenings. The dashboard is located at schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov for your review.
