    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.

    Student COVID - 19 Daily Screening Form to be completed by Parent/Guardian Before Sending your Child(ren)to School

    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). 


    A COVID - 19 hotline is now available to parents/guardians at 257-5625.  Please call this number if you have questions specific to COVID- 19 and the district will be in communication with you. Thank you. 


    Free food will be available for distribution one last time at the CLV campus (Carter Street Elementary entrance) and at the former Little Valley School on Thompson Avenue. These will be distributed on a first come, first served basis Wednesday, 10/28, at 11:00 a.m. and Friday, 10/30, at 5:00 p.m.

    Dear School Community,

    New York State is permitting outdoor Lower Risk (cross-country) and Moderate Risk (soccer) athletic events at schools. “Interim Guidance for Sports and Recreation During the COVID – 19 Public Health Emergency” limits the number of patrons/players to two spectators per player. Spectators must:

    • Maintain six feet of physical distance between individuals and/or family/household units at all times
    • Must wear face coverings when they are in common areas and situations where six feet of distancing is not able to be maintained, so long as they are over the age of two and medically able to tolerate such covering
    • Spectators (2 per player) will be issued a CCAA pass and must wear the pass at all times while at the athletic event
    • Spectators will complete a COVID – 19 screening/Temp check upon arrival

    Spectators without a CCAA issued pass will not be allowed to attend the athletic event.  Thank you for supporting our athletes and new regulations. 


    Please compete the registration form as soon as possible in order for the district to provide Free breakfast and lunch to our child(ren).

    We ask that all players abide by the following:
    -Wear masks
    -Practice social distancing
    -Limit participants to 20 players at the court
    Thank you.
