Student Needs Survey
 
As you may know, the federal government passed several stimulus and relief programs which are intended to allow schools to provide programs for students that will help them recover from COVID-related learning loss.  In addition to academic concerns, some students may have suffered emotional trauma due to the pandemic.  The stimulus funds are available for a limited time and are for limited purposes; we want to make sure they are used wisely and to fund programs which are most useful to our students.  In order to help us make informed decisions, we are calling on Unatego stakeholders to take a brief survey which can be found here:  
 
 
The survey is open to all members of our school community—students, parents, staff, and community members, and will be open until Thursday, June 17.  The results of the survey will be posted online at our website, www.unatego.org and presented to the Unatego Board of Education on Monday, June 21, at 6:30 pm.  Public participation is encouraged.  
 
Thank you for your support of our schools during the pandemic and we hope you will help us by answering the questions in the survey.
 
David S. Richards
Superintendent of Schools

Message from the Superintendent
 
June 8, 2021
 
Good afternoon,
 
Based on the guidance of the CDC, the NYS DOH, and Otsego County Department of Public Health, I surveyed the Reopening Task Force today and they overwhelmingly recommended that we allow students, staff, and visitors to go without masks when outdoors on school property.  Indoors, existing mask policy will continue as before (common areas and anytime six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained).   This change will be implemented immediately.
 
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
 
Dr. David S. Richards
Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
Late Friday afternoon, the NYS DOH released a letter seeking guidance from the CDC on mask wearing in schools.  In the letter, the Commissioner of the State DOH indicated they would like to change the current mask rules.  Somehow, this letter was released to the media and many outlets ran stories under the headline “NY to lift COVID mask mandate in schools beginning Monday” or something similar.
 
Following a weekend with false information flowing freely, the NYS Education Department sent a clarifying email Sunday afternoon.  The crux of the message is revealed in this passage:
 
“As of September 1, 2020, school districts were permitted to reopen, under Executive Order 202.60, “subject to adherence to Department of Health issued guidance and directives.”  These have included the submission of reopening plans to address, among other things, distancing and health requirements. 
SED has been in communication with Executive staff regarding the attached letter from Dr. Howard Zucker, New York State Commissioner of Health.  According to conversations with Executive staff, the intent of this letter was to obtain a response from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding differing standards for summer camps and schools; it has not changed any existing arrangements. Therefore, schools should continue to operate under their existing procedures until further notice.  No changes have been, or will be, made by the Executive until after Monday June 7 to afford the CDC an opportunity to respond to the letter.”
 
So, as of today, nothing has changed for Unatego or other public schools in NY.  As a political subdivision of New York State government, school districts must follow all directives from the state.  
 
Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding during these confusing times.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. David S. Richards
Superintendent of Schools
