Update to Pre-K to 12th grade Master Guidance

Dear Waterloo Families,

Friday evening, April 9, 2021, the New York State Department of Health released a twenty-four-page guidance document regarding the return of all students to school with masks, hand hygiene, and 3 feet of social distancing between students. This guidance document is on our website for your review.

We anticipated this would occur at some point, so our administrative team has been meeting to discuss our response to this anticipated guidance over the past few weeks. On March 27, 2021, we sent a survey to all families, staff, and secondary students to gather information about our students’ full-time return to school five days per week.

The administrative team plans to meet again tomorrow morning to finalize the details of the return. It will take some time to recreate the bus schedules to get ready for a full return.

I’ll have an update for all families regarding our return plan by the end of this week.


Terri Bavis
