    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

    On April 9, 2021, the NYS Department of Health (DOH) released updated interim guidance on in-person instruction. The new guidance mandates that when children are eating, they must be 6 feet apart. There is no provision that would allow the District to reduce the 6-foot distance during lunch if physical barriers (sneeze guards) are present even though many districts, including the Island Park UFSD, incorporated this safety measure in their submitted reopening plans without objections by the NYS Education Department (NYSED) or the NYS DOH.

    Therefore, based upon the updated guidance, effective Monday, April 19, 2021, all kindergarten through grade four students will no longer eat lunch in their classrooms. Instead, the children will eat lunch either in the cafeteria or gymnasium. The students will be seated two at a table to ensure social distancing protocols. They will have lunch and recess at their regularly scheduled times.

    Our Pre-K students will have lunch and recess from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm alternating students between the period. Breakfast for Pre-K will begin at 8:15 am to accommodate students arriving early on the first round of bussing. All meals will continue to be served in the classroom, staggering the number students present to ensure social distancing protocols.

    Please contact me with any questions or concerns at (516) 434-2670.

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Cameron
    Principal
