Board Message 1.28.22

January 28, 2022

Dear Warwick Valley CSD Community,

Please be advised that, when permitted by law, the Warwick Valley Central School District will make face masks optional, with masks required only on school buses in accordance with federal mandates. 

We believe it is critical to share this information with you immediately so that you can prepare accordingly.

The District has confirmed with the New York Appellate Division’s Second Department Clerk’s office that today’s deadline in the mask mandate is solely for the attorneys involved in the case to submit additional materials for submission. This means that only motion papers will be submitted this morning, and there will be no oral arguments. 

The judge will consider the documents and render a decision on the mask mandate. It is unknown whether the decision will be rendered today or next week. Until the judge issues a formal decision, the rule remains in effect and the mask mandate remains in place for schools in New York State. When a decision is reached, the District will notify all stakeholders.

In preparation for a change in the mask mandate, the District will distribute a survey shortly. It will be important for the school district to know if you wish to have your child wear a mask in school once the mandate is lifted.
