  • Husky Promise

    We had a great first week of having all our hybrid students back in our buildings together for four days! Sometimes it seems hard to believe that we have been living in a world with COVID-19 for more than a year now. We are so thankful to our students, faculty & staff, and our community at-large for understanding the importance of making safe decisions. It is because of this collective effort that we were able to keep our buildings open for hybrid learning since October with minimal interruptions. The choices that our families and individuals in our community make play a large role in our ability to keep our buildings open. For us to remain successful in this endeavor, now, more than ever, we must continue to put others first, make hard decisions, hold ourselves accountable, and model our uncompromising commitment to public health. Please join with us to commit to the Husky Promise to follow the guidelines necessary to keep you and those you love safe and healthy and our schools open. Remember, our pack sticks together. #PackProud

As such, NYSED has recommended schools move ahead with developing its testing administration plans. Read about the District's plans here.
