Reopening Plan

  • ""

    **PLEASE NOTE: Based upon the new NYSDOH guidance that was issued on April 9, 2021, the District has revised its plans. The file (found under Plan Documents below) is large, so please be patient as it opens.

    The Grand Island Central School District has released its 2020-21 school reopening plan.

    We employed a multi-layered planning process that included over 100 stakeholders from across the district, working in teams to make sure that our plans are comprehensive and minimize health risks to students, staff and families. Our committees included students, parents, community leaders, teachers, staff, administrators and Board of Education members. These stakeholders met multiple times to discuss the safest way to reopen our schools, with direction from the NYS Education Department's guidelines. In addition, the plan adheres to the safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH).

    We began the school year in September using our hybrid instructional model. Please know that we are doing everything we can to minimize health risk to students, staff and families, while ensuring equity. Our plans allow us to be flexible and adaptable to the changing circumstances regarding the pandemic, while intentionally complying with all of the state guidelines.

    Reopening plan documents can be found below. To see how many COVID-19 cases have been reported in the district, view the NYS COVID-19 Report Card.
