Spring Break Travel Reminders

Just a reminder about Spring Break Travel

If you plan to travel during the break please make sure to check the NYS website for up to date travel information.  As of April 1, there will no longer be a mandatory quarantine period after returning from travel in the US. We suggest you monitor your child closely for symptoms and keep them child home should anyone in your family become ill.  Travel outside of the US does require a 14 day quarantine period.  These restrictions change frequently so please make sure to check before returning to school, as a precaution, should you have traveled.
