outdoor mask wearing

Dear Rondout Valley School Community:


Last night we received updated guidance from the New York State Department of Health. Effective today (June 8th) face masks are no longer required to be worn outdoors on school grounds, including during outdoor school sports. Students, teachers, staff, or visitors may voluntarily continue to wear masks outdoors. 


There was no change to the requirement of mask use indoors and on school buses.


Administrators, teachers, and staff understand the necessity of frequent mask breaks for students during the school day.


Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we move to a sense of normalcy for our school community.


Joseph Morgan, Superintendent
