    COVID-19 Update: We have 5 new COVID-19 cases since my last update on May 28.  Of those cases, all 5 are students. We will continue to notify the school community as we learn of additional cases. 

     

    We remain unable to increase our capacity at the secondary schools to more in-person learning, due to the high infection rate within Monroe County. The 7-day average for COVID-19 cases in the county is 205 with more than 200 new cases reported yesterday alone. We must have no greater than 99 new cases per day, over 7-days, to allow for more in-person learning at both EIMS and EHS.

     

    Our building leadership continues to make end of the year plans for students. Please look for information regarding these events in the weekly newsletters from your student’s school(s).  


     


    May 28, 2021 - Update

    It’s hard to believe that we are heading into the Memorial Day weekend when today feels like fall outside.  It looks like sunny days are ahead this weekend, and I hope that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends as we kick off the summer season!

    Just a couple of updates this week:

    Since last Friday, we have had 4 new cases of COVID-19 across our district.  The local infection rate, although in decline, did not reach the requirement of less than 100 news cases in a 7-day average that would have allowed our secondary schools to open to more in-person learning.  This means we will remain in our current model with only a few weeks of the 2020-21 school year remaining. 

    It has been widely shared in local media that there is an expectation for schools to be open fully to in-person learning this fall.  We have not received any mandates from either the New York State Department of Education or the New York State Department of Health regarding instructional models or mitigation measures required this fall.  I will update you as that information is shared.  If you have any concerns regarding your student returning to full, in-person learning this fall, please contact your student’s principal or assistant principal no later than Friday, June 18th to discuss.

    The planning for September is well underway and we look forward to welcoming all students back to East Irondequoit schools on Wednesday, September 8th.  We are already looking forward to a new year that will look more like the EI we all remember!
