Dear Bluehawk Families,

During his daily COVID-19 press conference, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he will extend the school closure mandate until April 29, 2020. Consistent with prior Executive Orders, if this closure is not extended, schools would reopen on April 29 (not April 30).

We will have to pay close attention to language in the Executive Order that effectuates this order to determine if there are any additional requirements that come along with this extension.

The Governor was more optimistic regarding overall trend lines but continued to express a sense of urgency and the need for local governments to do a better job at enforcing social distancing mandates.

I will continue to provide you with updates and details as they become available.

Stay strong and stay safe,

Dr. Maria Lagana Suttmeier
Superintendent of Schools
