March 14, 2020 IRCSD COVID-19 Update: Joint statement from J-L BOCES and Public Health

Friends,

 

Steve Todd, Superintendent of Jefferson-Lewis BOCES, just made a joint statement from local Superintendents, County Officials, and the Departments of Health describing that all Jefferson-Lewis school student attendance will cease immediately. It is important to note that this is a preventative measure and NOT a result of any confirmed COVID-19 cases in the region. 

 

The statement includes the expectation that all school staff in component districts will report on Monday, March 16th as if it was a regular workday. (We would describe Monday as a staff development day.) Students, including children of staff, should not be present in school. 

 

In addition to our normal communication channels (website, social media, etc), we will send out School Messenger notifications to all staff and students.  Please check these sources regularly. Additional details, including staff reporting expectations beyond Monday will be forthcoming based on guidance. 

 

Expectations for academic work shared last week are still in place. As a reminder, contingency plans should focus primarily on the retention of existing skills and opportunities for at-home enrichment (refer to the prior email from me for details). We will work through plans for potential student work and personal item pick up over the coming days.

 

Thanks go out to the IRCSD administrators, teacher/support staff leaders, and everyone involved with past, present, and future planning for this unprecedented situation. We need your continued assistance now and into the future.

 

With great respect,

 

Mary Anne and Troy
