January 25, 2022
Dear Sayville Schools Community,
Late this afternoon, NYS Appellate Court Judge Robert Miller issued a stay related to the appeal filed by the NYS Department of Health (DOH) concerning the recent mask-mandate issue.
As a result, the DOH Mask Mandate remains in effect for schools in New York State; to clarify, mask wearing is not optional and will be required (including during all bus transportation) beginning tomorrow, Wednesday January 26, 2022. However, the appeal is set for Friday, January 28, 2022, at which time we anticipate that the Appellate Court will render its final decision concerning this matter.
While the Board of Education and I appreciate the frustration that everyone is feeling and realize the distress that this issue has caused our students, families and staff, the Sayville School District must, and will continue to follow the law and related procedures with this matter and forthcoming appeal. The District will provide updates as they become available. We appreciate your continued patience, cooperation, and understanding as we work through this complex issue together.
