Per the Governor’s comments this afternoon, it appears that as a result of conversations with the CDC, only the mandate to wear masks outdoors will be lifted. All other requirements for schools will remain in place, including wearing masks indoors except during mask breaks and when eating.
As this situation develops, we will keep the entire school community posted with any change in guidance. Effective immediately students and staff do not need to wear masks outdoors during any type of activity/event.
We appreciate your continued patience.

noticed on Facebook, and have been contacted by, Royalton residents who
are shocked by their sewer bills. This goes back to a 2017 letter the
town sent homeowners and businesses in the affected district regarding
sewer upgrades. I have reached out to the town to provide a narrative
that I will share here indicating the why/what of the projects, the
total cost, and cost to households.

Absolut of Gasport posted the following on their Facebook page:
We also want to be transparent about these management-union negotiations. We met twice in May with representatives of the union, 1199SEIU, and also yesterday. We have great respect for the hard-working, front-line employees. RCA demonstrated this throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by being among the first health-care companies in the state to create a $5-an-hour bonus for our employees working in a COVID area. That consideration is emblematic of our approach to the negotiations.
Since RCA took over Absolut’s operations in March 2020, we:
In the last year, RCA established 3 other contracts with 1199SEIU locals at 4 facilities in WNY and 1 in Painted Post. The employees ratified the contracts, which will pay the CNAs $14.35 an hour. At the negotiating table, RCA offered our Gasport CNAs $14.45 an hour and $14.50 an hour for cooks.”
• longevity bonuses up to $600/person after contract ratification
We expect to agree to a fair and acceptable contract that enhances employees’ salaries and benefits. Thank you.
