MASK AND DROP-OFF UPDATES Next week, the Governor said that she will be making a decision on the mask mandate for schools. At that time, she could decide to either lift or continue the mask mandate. The BOE and administration know many parents are wondering what ECS will do if and when the Governor decides to lift the mask mandate. We have composed the attached letter regarding how ECS will move forward if and when the mask mandate is lifted. As more information becomes available, we will keep you updated. In addition, ECS has changed the student drop off time in the morning to 7:40 a.m. Thus, students will be able to enter the North Street entrance at 7:40 a.m. Students will enter the cafeteria and wait until 7:50 a.m. before being dismissed to go to their homerooms.

Last week, Governor Hochul encouraged students to be COVID tested at the end of the February break prior to returning to school. It was one piece of data she would be using to determine the next steps pertaining to the mask mandate in schools. On Friday, ECS will be sending COVID test kits home with students. If you do not wish to have a test kit sent home with your student, please contact the school by tomorrow (Friday) morning. The COVID tests kits are being sent home to test your child(ren) on Sunday, February 27 prior to students returning to school on Monday, February 28. Testing your child(ren) on February 27 is optional. However, ECS wants to make sure that you have the means to test if you choose to do so.
