2021-22 School Reopening Plan|COVID-19 Notifications|Transmission Level: High

Introduction

On Monday, July 13, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that school districts in New York can follow plans to reopen for in-person schooling in September. Determinations about opening and closing schools as the COVID-19 pandemic continues will be made based on the state’s micro-cluster strategy https://forward.ny.gov/cluster-action-initiative in consultation with public health partners.

While districts have been instructed to prioritize efforts to return all students to in-person instruction, the district is also planning for remote/distance learning as well as a hybrid-modified model that combines in-person instruction and remote learning. 

The plan outlined here is for the reopening of schools in the Fonda-Fultonville Central School District for the 2020-21 school year, following the building closure related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan includes procedures that will be followed in the following schools:

  • Fonda-Fultonville Elementary School
    Mrs. Megan Collins, Interim Principal 
    mcollins@ffcsd.org | Phone: 518-853-4415 ext. ext. 5001
  • Fonda-Fultonville Middle School
    Mr. David Zadoorian, Principal
    dzadoorian@ffcsd.org | 518-853-4415 ext. 4246
  • Fonda-Fultonville High School
    Mr. Aaron Grady, Principal
    agrady@ffcsd.org | 518-853-4415 ext. 4238

The health and safety of our students, our staff and their families is our top priority. We want students and employees to feel comfortable and safe returning to school campuses. Our reopening plan incorporates recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

It is possible that we may need to alternate between in-person and remote learning throughout the year due to recommendations and guidance from our partnering agencies, and stay-at-home orders from the Governor. The level of infection, the spread of the virus and response to the disease in our community will be at the forefront of our decision making as we move to open our schools.
