Return to school survey

From the Royalton-Hartland Superintendent's Desk

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Over the last few days, the District has received further information and guidance from the New York State Governor’s Office, the New York State Department of Education and the New York State Department of Health in regard to their expectations as to when and under what circumstances we can reopen our schools. We expect to submit our detailed reopening plan to the Department of Education, and will share with our school community, before the July 31 deadline. Prior to August 7, Governor Cuomo will determine, based on specific community health metrics, whether we can reopen our schools in September and under what model. The Department of Health will continue to monitor these health metrics on a weekly basis throughout August and throughout the school year in the event we need to quickly adjust our instructional model.

We have developed a survey with some very time sensitive information that we need as we begin preparing for the reopening of our schools. I ask that you please complete the Family Information Survey as soon as you can. The survey has also been mailed to all households, however, we strongly encourage you to complete it online if possible.

These are challenging times for each of us. I strongly encourage the entire community to remain vigilant in their use of personal protections -- wash your hands often, wear a face covering, maintain physical distancing and avoid close groups of people. Together we will beat COVID-19.

Dr. Hank Stopinski
Superintendent of Schools
