2020-21 - Important Letters from the Superintendent

With the ending of the school year, we now turn to the work of planning for the eventual re-opening of schools with greater attention. For so many reasons, like all of you, it is my greatest hope that we will be able to return to work and school in September in a way that, to the greatest extent possible, resembles school life as we knew it before COVID-19.

This summer we are going to move forward very carefully with a re-opening planning effort so that we reduce to an absolute minimum, risks to the health and safety of our students and staff.

Re-opening planning work is underway at several different levels. Local school districts, such as Eldred are assembling re-opening committees and engaging in that work while also being connected to the same work that is happening at the County, Regional, and State levels. In Sullivan County, each school district participates in County-wide meetings, and staff members from different departments are members of subcommittees that are exploring the various re-opening challenges that can be expected and identifying potential solutions to those challenges. 

As the planning for re-opening progresses the Eldred Task Force may expand by the formation of different working groups that will carry the planning further. We may also need to add new subcommittees as needs are identified. The experience of this crisis has taught us the importance of being able to have a flexible response.We have created an "ASKTHESUPERINTENDENT" , where individuals who are not serving on a committee can send questions regarding the re-opening of school.

We will periodically post updates on this page and the District website.
