Hudson Valley school districts confirm masks and distance learning

A growing list of schools in the Hudson Valley issued their own guidelines this week, requiring students to wear masks in class.

New York State Department of Healing commissioner Dr Howard Zucker on Thursday said school districts should follow CDC guidelines when developing plans for the in-person school this fall.

With the end of the state of disaster emergency on June 25, 2021, school districts are reestablished as the controlling entity of schools. Schools and school districts should develop plans to open in person to fall in the safest way possible, and I recommend taking advice from the CDC and local health departments, ”Zucker said.

The CDC has recommended that all school children wear masks in class this fall.

Saugerties School District Schools Superintendent Kirk Reinhardt on Friday released guidelines for the upcoming school year and confirmed that students and staff will wear masks.

“All staff and students will be required to wear masks indoors, regardless of their immunization status. District schools will allow mask breaks, while maintaining physical distance. We will continue to maintain a minimum of 3 feet of social distance between students and 6 feet between students and staff, to the best of our ability, ”said Reinhardt.

Reinhardt added that the goal is to have students in class five days a week, but notes that things could change.

“Our goal is to provide 100% in-person instruction five days a week for our students. We will continue to monitor DOH or State Department of Education guidelines and adjust these requirements as conditions change, ”Reinhard said. “We will switch to distance education whenever necessary due to a positive individual who may have impacted others.”

The City of Kingston School District has released its plan to reopen for the next school year and also announced that students will wear masks this fall.

“Students, staff and visitors to our schools will be required to wear face coverings indoors, including on the school bus. Students will be allowed to remove their face coverings during meals and during short breaks as long as they maintain appropriate social distancing. Students who are unable to medically tolerate a face covering will not be required to wear one, ”says the reopening plan.

Kingston students will continue to learn through a “blended / blended learning model”.

“Given the potential for communities to experience peaks in COVID-19 cases at any time during the school year, which can result in short- or long-term school closures, our district has developed a model and hybrid / blended learning schedule that can be continued as is in a totally isolated environment, ”states the reopening plan. As previously stated, student schedules (time of day and letter days) will remain the same whether teaching is in person or remotely so that students do not encounter conflicts in which synchronous lessons for different subjects are offered simultaneously. “

SUNY New Paltz updated their guidelines for fall 2021 on Friday and announced that everyone must wear masks indoors.

“On August 6, in light of new CDC recommendations and the spread of the Delta variant, the College revised the fall 2021 guidelines to reinstate the indoor mask requirement on campus for everyone. , including those who are fully immunized. This post has been updated to reflect this change, ”the college says.
