I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Earlier this week, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) released their guidance documents for the reopening of schools this coming fall.
Since the end of the school year, Saugerties Central School District has been busy rethinking and planning for re-entry. A Task Force was created to help brainstorm different scenarios and concerns. All of our decisions were tied to two major components – the health an safety of all of our students and staff and providing our students with the highest level of academics regardless of the structural setting. Both NYSED and NYSDOH will continue to advise us as we move closer to opening our buildings for the 2020-2021 school year.
We are currently looking at three different plans, which fall within the given guidelines.
In accordance with these guidelines, our plans will focus on screening, social distancing, face coverings, technology, cleaning, hygiene, and disinfecting.
As we continue our planning and transition efforts, we want you to know that we are deeply committed to striving for in-person instruction. We all realize the importance for students to be physically in school and the value of social interactions and supports that our school environment provides to students and families. That said, our plan will include consistent monitoring, containment, and the ability to seamlessly pivot to closure if necessary.
We ask that our community also share in our commitments to reopening schools by:
Thank you for your continued partnership in helping us keep our schools and our children safe and healthy as we navigate a reality that none of us could have ever imagined. Please stay safe and enjoy the remainder of your summer.

Based on guidance from NYS and the CDC, the following procedures will be in place for visitors to any district locations. We would like to limit the number of individuals entering into the building as much as possible.
**Unannounced visitors may be asked to schedule an appointment. A visitor may be denied entry into the building based on the above Guidance from New York State.**
Schools may have been closed due to COVID-19, but our students were very busy keeping up with their academics. Here is a look at our first-ever virtual Scholastic Awards Ceremony, where co-hosts SueEllen Egan and Tom Averill took to the stage to announce this year’s scholarship award winners. Ms. Egan and Mr. Averill announced more than $700,000 worth of awards. Congratulations to all of this year's award recipients. You've done an outstanding job. The District is very proud of you!

As we work through these challenging times together, NY State of Health is committed to
ensuring access to affordable, quality health insurance for all New Yorkers so they can get the
care they need during this state of emergency.
With the recent closure of businesses across the state, many New Yorkers are at risk of losing their health insurance coverage as a result of COVID-19. Many are likely to be eligible for health coverage with financial assistance through NY State of Health due to their loss of coverage and income. NY State of Health opened a Special Enrollment Period last month for people who are uninsured, and the Marketplace has started an awareness campaign to let people know that NY State of Health is there as a safety net in difficult times like these.
New Yorkers who are without health insurance should apply now through NY State of Health. If you lost employer coverage, you must apply within 60 days of losing that coverage. Because of a loss of income, New Yorkers may also be eligible for Medicaid, the Essential Plan, Child Health Plus, or subsidized Qualified Health Plan coverage.
Thousands of assistors are ready throughout the state to help consumers enroll by phone. NY State of Health is committed to helping New Yorkers get the coverage they need so they can get the care they need.
Visit us at: www.nystateofhealth.ny.gov and let us help you find a health care plan that works for you.
If you have additional questions you can contact the Marketplace directly at 518-486-9102 or NYSOH@health.ny.gov.
