Dear Tamarac Families:
The Brunswick Central School District is in the initial planning stages for what a return to school may look like this fall. Although New York State has provided preliminary guidelines for reopening, this is a dynamic process. Our District knows that it is important we approach the return to school with options in place. These options will evolve and adapt over the coming weeks as we receive more information from New York State and formally submit a plan for approval.
Using preliminary guidelines and plans from other states, we understand the following as part of a reopening: face masks or face shields will be worn, social distancing protocols will be in place, students and staff will have their temperature taken on a daily basis.
Ultimately, we must work within the parameters given to us and follow all New York State guidelines on reopening. Your responses to this survey will help guide us while planning for the fall. Your feedback is crucial to help ensure the health and safety of both the students and staff in the age of COVID-19.
You may have more than one child attending school at Brunswick CSD. We would like only one survey completed per family/household. The survey is open from Thursday, July 16, to Tuesday, July 22.
We thank you very much for your assistance in helping us to plan for resources and protocols for return to school when the Governor decides that we have met the benchmarks for reopening.
You have my commitment to communicate frequently and to open the opportunities for feedback during the development of the plan. As always, the health and safety of our students and staff is our number one priority.
You can find the survey at: Parent Feedback Survey
Thank you for your help as we learn how to navigate new instructional structures and new safety protocols during the COVID pandemic. There will be subsequent requests for feedback on instructional plans forthcoming.
Wishing you all the best,
