Parent/Guardian update for Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020
It is critical that you notify the school nurse and/or principal right away if your child is being tested for COVID. We keep this information private, but use it to plan for possible exposure protocols. Please help us keep GF Nation Strong by being honest and proactive as we navigate this pandemic together!
As you begin conversations around plans for various holidays, activities, and celebrations, we would like you to consider these key factors into your decision-making:
- If you travel to any of the restricted states, you will be required by NYS DOH to quarantine at home for 14 days upon your return. Please note that several areas within New York State are also subject to the Governor’s Cluster Action Initiative and have additional requirements therein.
- New York State still discourages large gatherings, and limits indoor social events to 50 people or less.
- Our actions as individuals have an effect on our entire Glens Falls Nation, even if we don’t feel sick or get sick ourselves. Gatherings with the best of intentions, involving the best of people, could still cause widespread problems for the larger community, as these news articles note:
We are extremely grateful that the personal decisions and responsible actions of our faculty, staff, students, and families have allowed us to learn in-person at each of our schools so far. We recognize the sacrifices — both big and small — that individuals are making each day to keep our school community thriving. And we ask you to persevere in those actions for the greater good.
We are truly all in this together. Thank you for being an important part of GF Nation.
