School Reopening

Planning for Reopening Vestal Schools

On Monday, July 13, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that school districts in New York can follow plans to reopen for in-person schooling in September, if COVID-19 infection rates stay at 5% or lower in a given region.  
 
The health and safety of our students, our staff and their families are our top priority. We want students and employees to feel comfortable and safe returning to school. Our reopening plan, linked below, incorporates recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED). 
 

To help inform our reopening plan, the District has sought feedback and input from stakeholders, including administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents/guardians of students, local health department officials and health care providers, employee unions and community groups. Engagement efforts included a School Messenger survey, and the District has formed a Steering Committee as well as sub committees that will channel feedback from stakeholders back to the Steering Committee. For your information, the framework of these committees is included in the right menu.
 
The District remains committed to communicating all elements of the reopening plan, once finalized, to students, parents and guardians, staff and visitors. The plan will be available to all stakeholders via the district website on this page beginning on July 31, 2020, and will be updated throughout the school year, as necessary, to respond to local circumstances.  
 
We continue to encourage parents, staff and other stakeholders to share their thoughts about this process. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at [email protected]
