New Guidance from NYSDOH Regarding Masks – Summer Only

The Valley Central School District has been made  aware that because COVID-19 transmission rates are low, NYSDOH has indicated  that school districts may implement revised masking policies consistent with the INTERIM GUIDANCE FOR CHILD CARE, DAY CAMP, AND OVERNIGHT CAMP PROGRAMS DURING THE COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

Mask use while indoors is still strongly encouraged, however students will no longer be required to wear masks indoors.  All other safety measures and protocol will remain in place until further notice.

Unvaccinated staff must continue to wear face coverings while indoors according to the new guidelines set forth by the NYSDOH.

Masks are optional for all individuals while outdoors.

We are no longer required to report to the COVID dashboard. 

Please be advised that these guidelines pertain to summer school and summer programs only.  Guidance for the 2021-2022 school year will be issued by the NYSDOH at a later date.
