Latest School Opening Updates from NYS DOH

Dear KLSD Community,

In the last few days, and most recently last night, we’ve received additional school opening guidance from the New York State Department of Health.

Most significantly, that guidance mandates the following:

  • Masks are now required indoors at school by NYS DOH for all students and staff. They remain optional outdoors.
  • All school staff will be required to test weekly for COVID-19, unless they can demonstrate evidence of having had a COVID-19 vaccination.

The complete guidance from NYS DOH can be found here. Details of our KLSD school opening plans can be found on our school district website.


Andrew Selesnick, Superintendent of Schools
