IMPORTANT CLV NEWS & UPDATES
Dear School Community!
This is an update from earlier communication this week and our plans to reopen to in-person instruction on Monday, October 26th.
The Cattaraugus County Health Department has completed contact tracing and has been in communication with individuals with probable or confirmed exposure to someone testing positive for COVID – 19. In some instances, the Health Department has advised persons to quarantine. The Cattaraugus County Health Department issues quarantines for persons that are in contact with a positive person, not contacts of contacts.
The entire school campus has undergone cleaning and sanitizing in accordance with guidelines set forth by NYSED, NYSDOH and the CDC.
The district has been in daily communication with the Cattaraugus County Health Department and has been given approval to resume in-person instruction on Monday, October 26, 2020.
We will be resuming our in-person hybrid schedule with M/W, or A day, on Monday, October 26, 2020.
I am confident in our reopening plan that includes small cohorts of students, social distancing, mask wearing when not social distancing, and cleaning/sanitizing protocols.
As a parent, you have the option to have your child continue with remote instruction. Please contact the building principal if you plan to have your child continue with remote learning.
Please call me if you have student specific questions or concerns.
I will be in my office on Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. to answer specific questions you may have. I can be reached at (716) 257-5292.
Please remember all student information is confidential in order to maintain the rights and privacy of students.
As part of our reopening plan we are asking parents to complete an on-line COVID – 19 electronic screening form before sending your child(ren) to school. The on-line form (located to the left of this page under Return to School) is secure and confidential. Daily temperature screening and assessment of the four COVID-19 close contact/potential exposure questions will be conducted at each school building as students exit the school bus and/or enter the school building (parent drop off and walkers).

REOPENING PLAN AND SUMMARY
CHILD CARE FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS
Essential healthcare and first responders who are critical to the community response to the COVID-19 pandemic can contact Paula Jones at (716) 257-5293 if child care services are needed.
If you are looking for child care, the CCRR (Child Care Resource & Referral) in your county is a great place to start. They will ask you about the kind of care you are looking for, the ages of your children, the hours of care you need and other specifics such as any special needs your child might have. Based on that information, they will be able to give you a list of providers that most closely meet your needs.
