New COVID guidance for schools UPDATED

As communicated over the past several weeks, the District has been exploring the possibility of returning all students to in-person instruction on a daily basis.  The NYSDOH issued updated school guidance on Friday, April 9, 2021, which redefined social distancing requirements based on the age of students and community transmission levels.  We are now able to share the following updates with you.

  • Students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 6 will now be able to maintain a social distance of only three feet.  While reducing social distancing in these grade levels is now allowable, the District will continue to keep students spaced six feet apart whenever possible.
  • Students in grades 7 and 8 have returned to in-person instruction on a daily basis due to the fact that they are grouped in “cohorts,” meaning that for the majority of their school day, they are grouped in one classroom with the same students.  These students will be socially distanced by three feet.  Based on updated guidance, use of barriers is not recommended, and as such will not be placed on student desks.
  • As of Monday, April 26, 2021, students in grades 9-12 have returned to class every day for in-person instruction under the new guidelines. We wish to thank all involved who worked to make this happen. Of course, parents ultimately have the choice of their child continuing to learn remotely.   
  • Students will now be required to remain only six feet apart when singing, engaging in physical activity or when playing a wind instrument.

In addition to these changes, the following items remain true: students and staff must continue to wear masks at all times, except for when consuming food or drinks.  This requires students in grades 7 and 8 to eat breakfast in the HS small gym, which is equipped with student desks.  Also, students and staff must remain socially distanced at a space of six feet even when students are permitted to be only three feet apart.  Finally, guidelines for quarantine remain such that if a person is in contact with a COVID positive person with less than six feet of distance for 10 or more minutes or less than 12 feet of distance for 45 or more minutes over a 24 hour period he or she will continue to be subject to quarantine.

Parents and guardians will be reminded of the expectation that in all grade levels, students will attend school each and every day that they are scheduled to attend.

We appreciate everyone’s continued support, patience and flexibility.  We will continue to keep you apprised of changes if and when they occur.  In the meantime, we will continue to remain Saber Strong throughout the course of this pandemic!

FPD students shine in Reflections

Two students at Francis P. Donnelly Elementary School have made an impressive showing in this year's "Reflections" contest. Kylie Pearsall received an Award of Excellence from the NYS P.T.A. for her photography entry, and will move on to the nationals. Trevor Brown also made it to the state judging level! This year's Reflections theme: "I Matter Because..."
 
Kylie's photography entry is entitled Generations to Come. It was accompanied by her Reflections statement: "I matter because it's important for me to pass down kindness, generosity, love, and tradition through the generations. It is up to us to make this world a better place, just like my great-grandparents."  See the photo
 
Trevor entitled his entry Baby Jesus, and in his artist statement said "I matter because I’m important to Jesus. I am important to Mommy and Daddy because they love me. I am important to God because He made me." See the photo
Parents/Guardians:
1.) Thanks to federal financial support, we are providing weekend meals to all students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12! This will consist of 2 kid-friendly breakfasts and 2 kid-friendly lunches. You do not have to do anything further to receive these meals. On the last day of school each week students will be grabbing the meals as they leave the building. We hope your child will enjoy these meals. Please call 775-9154 if you have any questions.
2.) SV Free meals program to continue through 20-21 School Year!
Susquehanna Valley Central School District administration, local health authorities, and the Broome-Tioga BOCES "Rock On Cafe" Food Services division have put together a comprehensive plan effective through the end of the year that will guarantee breakfast and lunch free of charge for all students, whether learning in person or remotely! THIS LETTER from our Food Service Director Mark Bordeau has all the details. Please read it carefully and reach out with any questions you may have.

Logan signing letter of intent Star Saber Logan Haskell signs with Binghamton-U
Logan Haskell is just "one of those guys." You know the type. A leader on the field and off. A gifted athlete and academic with no outward sign that he's overly conscious of those gifts. Conducts himself like a gentleman. Humble and quiet. That guy everyone wants on their team. Well, Binghamton University will have the pleasure of having Logan on their team! On November 13, flanked by parents Steve and Mary, Logan signed his letter of intent to attend and play baseball for the Division I Bearcats. 
 

A Great Place to Live and Learn
