    August 7, 2020

    Good afternoon.

    Governor Cuomo announced today that schools may reopen in September.  In addition, he asked that the following take place to provide our learning community updates about Elba’s plans:

    • Schools must communicate with their teachers and staff once (Zoom meeting is scheduled for Monday at 10:00 a.m.) before opening.
    • Schools must communicate three times with parents prior to August 21, 2020. These dates and process/forum (Zoom, Conference Call, etc…) will be established at the Board of Education meeting on Monday, August 10, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. and sent out next week.
    • Schools must communicate the process that we will support the testing and contact tracing of ill persons (students and staff). This aligns perfectly with our plan that was previously posted on our website by August 14, 2020.  A link is posted for this specific section.
    • Schools must also post their distance learning and continuity of learning plans on their website by August 14, 2020. To see these plans created by our principals, go to:  elbacsd.org

    To ensure that we will be ready for reopening, we have ordered plenty of cleaning supplies, masks, face shields for each staff member, and signage to provide visuals for our students.  We are adding a cleaner to our day shift so that surfaces can be wiped down more frequently.  As we reviewed the numerous pages of training that is now required to open, I am presenting a revised school calendar to the Board of Education that would provide the time necessary to train our staff by moving two conference days from October and January to September 8th and 9th.  As I have said to parents and staff that have emailed or called me, I want to make sure that students and staff are prepared to come back safely.  As the guidance continues to change weekly, as well as the demands on schools, we will adjust and communicate directly to you. 

    Elba will be ready to open with our hybrid model.  We will review all of our systems and status by October 1, 2020 with the goal of increasing capacity.  Communication from the principals will be mailed Monday to students and families.  Returning the information as quickly as possible will help us plan bus routes, class lists, etc…

    It is an honor to lead Elba at this difficult and challenging time.  Please contact me if you have any questions via email at ndale@elbacsd.org or 757-9967 Ext 1034.
