Update on Fall Reopening Guidance
Dear Carmel Community,
On July 29, 2021, the District received the attached memo was from the NY State Education Department regarding guidance for the opening of schools for the 2021-22 school year.
While the NY State Education Department guidance offered some information about re-opening, our school district continues to wait for more specific guidance from the Governor’s office and the New York State Department of Health. Based on the July 29 memo, the Commissioner of Education states that the only information they have received is that the Department of Health guidance is in development and that the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will serve as its basis.
In response to this memo, our Fall 2021 Reopening Committee will be meeting on August 6, 2021, to review the memo from the NY State Education Department, and the most current health and safety guidance from the CDC. We hope that additional guidance will be released by the Governor’s office or the Department of Health in the coming days prior to this meeting.
If you have any questions or thoughts that you would like to share with the Fall 2021 Reopening Committee, please email email@example.com.
We recognize that decisions are needed in a timely manner for the District, parents and staff to all prepare appropriately for the 2021-22 school year. We will communicate any decisions made by the Committee at the meeting, or any additional guidance that is released, as quickly as possible.
Your continued support is appreciated. Please be safe and stay well!
