Mask mandate will remain in effect
Dear SANY parents, guardians, students, and staff,
The state-wide mask mandate will remain in effect after a New York appellate court judge issued a ”stay” Tuesday evening. This “stay” allows Governor Hochul’s mask mandate to continue amid an appeal.
On Monday evening, a Nassau County Supreme court judge ruled that the way New York State created its mask mandate was unconstitutional and a violation of state law. New York State has since appealed the Nassau County decision.
With this recent and conflicting news, we would like to clarify that at this time, all staff, students, and school visitors are required to wear a mask or appropriate face covering while inside our schools. There has been absolutely no change in the district’s health and safety protocols.
As this situation evolves, we will continue to update our staff and families on the latest information and guidance. We will continue to put the health and safety of the school community as our first priority. Again, thank you all for your continued support.
