letter from the superintendentDear Rondout Valley School Community, 

As you may know, yesterday there was a court decision nullifying the New York State Department of Health mandate regarding the wearing of masks in schools. Last evening we were directed by the Commissioner of Education to continue require masking, as the court decision is being appealed. 

This appeal prompts an automatic stay, or pause, on yesterdays ruling. This means that mask wearing in schools continues to be required for all students and staff. We are legally required to follow this automatic stay.

We will update you as we receive more information.

Thank you for your continued support. 


Sincerely, 

Joseph Morgan
Superintendent
