Dear Parents, Students Staff and the Roxbury Community,
 
Last night, NYS DOH re-issued its Interim Guidance for In-Person Instruction During the Covid-19 Public Health Emergency.  This is the same document that schools have been required to adhere to throughout the pandemic.  
Consistent with this update, beginning immediately, students, staff, and visitors have the option of not wearing a mask while outdoors on school grounds.  This includes all end-of-year activities and athletics that are held outdoors.  
Students and staff will continue to wear masks inside the school buildings and on school busses.  Teachers will have the option to move instruction outdoors when it is conducive to do so.
We are quickly coming to the end of a tumultuous school year but we are doing so in celebration and with gratitude for the year we have navigated together.

Dear Parents, Students, Staff and the Roxbury Community,
If there is one thing we have all learned during the pandemic it is that change happens all the time. That being said, I wanted to inform you of an important change that could take place as early as next week. 
Late on Friday afternoon we were informed that mask mandates for schools may lessen significantly.  Dr. Howard Zucker, the head of the New York State Department of Health, has written a letter to the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
In the letter Dr. Zucker states: 
“As many camps take place on school grounds, both serve school-age children, and the end of the school year/start of the camp season both occur in June, New York State plans to align our school and camp mask guidance as follows. In both settings, as a minimum state-wide guidance:
• Indoors, mask use will be strongly encouraged but not required for students, campers, and        
    staff/teachers/counselors who are not fully vaccinated.
• Outdoors, masks are not required; students, campers, and staff/teachers/counselors who are 
    not fully vaccinated are “encouraged” to wear a mask in certain higher-risk circumstances.
• Both indoors and outdoors, students, campers, and staff who are fully vaccinated do not need 
    to wear masks.
• Schools and camps may choose to implement stricter standards.”
He closes the letter requesting scientific data from the CDC prohibiting this new guidance. If no such information is received, New York State’s plan is to move forward with the above guidelines as early as Monday, June 7th.
As it stands now, there has been no formal change in state requirements. Also, current state guidance requires districts to engage stakeholders when updating a school reopening plan, suggesting that stakeholders would need to be consulted before changing mask requirements.
I ask that you please take this very brief survey on mask wearing at Roxbury. 
The link is posted below and on our Facebook page. Your feedback is always greatly valued and appreciated!
We will continue to monitor this and communicate any updates as they become available. 
In the meantime, masks will still be required to be worn by students and staff.

Over the next three years, Roxbury Central School will have approximately $1.3 million available in new federal stimulus funding. By July 1st, we must create a comprehensive spending plan for the use of these funds with stakeholder input. There are guidelines and time-frames as well as challenges associated with spending this amount of money in a short period of time. We have created some ideas and thoughts on using these funds. We are seeking your ideas to continue to shape our initial thoughts on how to allocate these funds. A survey is available on this Webpage and our Facebook page.  Please take some time to complete our survey with your great ideas.  Should you have any questions, please contact me.
