Updated Guidance for End-of-Year Celebrations from NYS DOH...
The New York State Department of Health has provided updated interim guidance for end-of-the-academic year celebrations. This very detailed guidance is informed by the CDC's Guidance for Organizing Large Events and Gatherings. See the article in the News column on this page or click this line to access the full updated interim guidance.

Updates to NYS Department of Health Interim Guidance...
As of April 9, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) updated its interim guidance for in-person instruction at Pre-K to Grade 12 schools during the COVID-19 public health emergency to correspond with earlier Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance.
 
Due to evidence that transmission risk ranges by student age, the CDC recommends that physical distancing requirements differ by grade level and community transmission risk. CDC has developed four levels of indicators and thresholds for community transmission of COVID-19.

Pfzier is currently the only vaccine approved for children ages 16 - 17. The District was notified that the Broome County Health Department has a number of appointments now available on its website. Please follow this link for more information.

Many are likely to be eligible for health insurance with financial assistance through New York State of Health due to loss of coverage/income, and a special enrollment period for people who are uninsured was opened last month.
