MOST RECENT COVID-19 UPDATES FROM THE TUXEDO UNION FREE SCHOOL DISTRICRT

Community Notification of New Confirmed Case #11 - Posted May 11 2021
Dear Tuxedo Families, Faculty and Staff:
 
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that Tuxedo UFSD was notified of a student at George F. Baker High School who has tested positive for COVID-19.  This is a new case that has been reported to the District.  Due to HIPAA, we are legally prohibited from disclosing any personally identifiable information about the individual or family.

Any staff member or parent/guardian of a child who has been exposed has already been notified of this exposure and directed to quarantine by the school nurse.  If your child has been told to quarantine they will not be able to participate in after-school activities.
EMERGENCY PIVOT TO 100% REMOTE INSTRUCTION FOR GRADES 6, 7 AND 8
 
Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 will be on 100% remote instruction through May 17, 2021.  They are able to return to in-person instruction on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, provided medical clearance.    
 
NEW YORK STATE 6, 7, AND 8 MATH TESTING IS CANCELLED
 
These exams are cancelled for Tuxedo UFSD students in grades 6, 7, and 8.  New York State provides no remote option for taking these exams.  There will be no “make-up” testing either when students return to in-person instruction.
 
MODIFIED BASEBALL AND MODIFIED SOFTBALL IS CANCELLED
 
Modified Baseball and Modified Softball is cancelled.  Coaches will be in communication with athletes and their parents/guardians accordingly.
 
REMINDER ON DISMISSAL POLICY FOR CANCELLED AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES  
 
In the event that after school activities are immediately cancelled due to the need for broad quarantine (or other reason), please be reminded that:
 
  • Students must be transported home in the official manner designated in the beginning of the school year (e.g. walk home, parent pick-up or bus)

  • Students must go home, they may NOT remain on campus when their activity is cancelled 

  • Any changes in a student’s official transportation plan must be communicated to the main office in writing prior to 2:45PM the day of.  This includes going to an alternate location (e.g. friend’s house) or taking another mode of transportation (e.g. will walk home instead of taking the bus).  

As with all confirmed cases, the Orange County Department of Health will investigate and identify through contact tracing protocols any individual who had close contact (direct or proximate) with the positive individual. Any staff member or parent/guardian of a child who has been exposed has already been notified of this exposure.

It is important to remember that all of our classrooms and shared spaces where people congregate are cleaned regularly throughout the day, and deep cleaned and sanitized at the end of each school day.

All Tuxedo UFSD students and staff are required to complete the daily COVID-19 Mandated Screening Questionnaire and self-monitor for symptoms; following CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

We cannot emphasize enough that parents, students, and staff members must be just as vigilant following the public health guidance outside of school, including limiting group gatherings, practicing good hygiene, wearing masks, and following social distance guidelines. 
As always, the health and safety of students and employees is our top priority. We appreciate your continued support.

Dear Neighbors, 

I hope you are all safe, well, and taking good care as we finally enter spring. My top priority continues to be getting our district the access to vaccines it desperately needs. I’m delighted to share that a permanent, state-run vaccine site is coming to Orange County at the SUNY Orange campus in Middletown. It remains urgent that a state site be established in Rockland County, something I'm continuing to push for every day. 

Simply put: I made it clear to state officials that I would not rest until west-of-Hudson was provided with an accessible rollout of the vaccine. As one of the highest impacted regions in the state, this announcement was a long time coming and the culmination of countless discussions with the state. I continue pushing feverishly for a state vaccine site to open in Rockland County, and recently co-sponsored a bill that would mandate the state to do so. 

I know things continue to change rapidly and I will continue to keep everyone posted. Below you’ll find a comprehensive breakdown of the latest vaccine updates. Of course, my office is always here if you need our assistance. Call us at 845-567-1270 or send an email to skoufis@nysenate.gov
