Return to School Committee

emptyd esks  awaiting students

Our Return to School Committee includes sub-committees for Transportation and Food Service, Communications, Human Resources, Facilities, PE/Athletics/Clubs, PPS and Medical/Mental Health, Instruction, and Technology.  We have a diverse array of constituents, including community members on our building-level teams (Nassau/Hagan and Todd/Spackenkill High School).  Our Board of Education is also an active partner as we develop our plans.  In addition, the superintendent meets weekly with the Dutchess County superintendents and with the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health to discuss updates to health and safety protocols. 

The committee works collaboratively to make recommendations and decisions for teaching and learning based on guidance provided by the New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) Health and Safety Guide for the 2021-2022 School Year This document closely follows guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which recommend a full return to school for all students.
