Superintendent's Update #8

September 2, 2021

Dear Chappaqua Central School District Families and Staff,

I hope that this letter finds you well. Last night’s storm was challenging for us, and I know it was challenging for many of our families and staff. Thank you for your flexibility this morning.  

I wanted to inform you that this afternoon, NY State Department of Health Commissioner, Howard Zucker, released a three-page document entitled, “Commissioner’s Determination on COVID-19 Testing Pursuant to 10NYCCR 2.62.”

This released document describes parameters related to vaccinations and COVID-19 testing of students and staff. Over the coming days, I will work with the CCSD administrative team, district physicians, and the Westchester County Department of Health to determine the most appropriate path forward for Chappaqua CSD. I will share recommendations for how to implement these new requirements with the Board of Education on September 14, 2021.  

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
