This is Dr. Rabey from Depew Schools with an important message:
As you are aware, the NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker sent a letter to the Director of the CDC regarding a potential change to the use of masks in schools. We were advised today that the update to the guidance would only be for outdoors. Therefore, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, June 8th. Masks will not be required when students and staff are outside for any activity. There is no change for indoors and masks are still required for all.
The Depew Union Free School District has consistently followed the health and safety regulations released by the NYSDOH over the course of the pandemic. Once again, we respectfully ask that students and staff continue to follow the requirement of wearing masks per the CDC and the NYSDOH.
I thank you in advance for your continued cooperation in helping to keep our schools as safe and secure as they can be.
