Lawrence Families, I hope you and your families are well. There is much talk about changing mandates for schools in regards to masks and quarantine. At the current time we are maintaining the mask mandate. We are reducing close contact quarantine of unvaccinated individuals to 5 days, expecting that Nassau County will adopt the NYS guideline. Vaccinated individuals do not quarantine. If the contact quarantine changes further, as indicated today by the Governor, I will let you know. For now , any quarantined individual may return to school 5 days from exposure. Thank you for your patience and compliance as we get through these ongoing changes to ordered protocols Dr.Pedersen
Lawrence Families If you have not picked up your child’s FREE COVID rapid test kit you may come to Lawrence Primary School @#2 School tomorrow from 4-6 pm. Please come to the gym doors. The state has given us one kit for each public school child . Thank you Dr. Pedersen

We will return to school tomorrow . PLEASE be vigilant in monitoring symptoms and keeping children home if they are experiencing symptoms. IF your child has been in contact with a positive COVID case, they must remain out of school for 10 days. We await guidance on test to stay which would reduce the number of days. There are many families impacted by the positive infection rate and we will do all we can to maintain our in person instruction. Your help is most appreciated. Be well. Dr. Pedersen
Dear Lawrence Union Free School District Community, I hope this finds you and your loved ones well. We are experiencing a COVID-19 surge in NY and are monitoring the numbers carefully to ensure that we can continue to provide a safe environment for our students and staff. I know that parents have questions as to whether schools will reopen in person on Monday, January 3. At this time, our plan is for all schools to reopen for in-person instruction on January 3. As per guidelines from the NYS Department of Health and the CDC, masks will continue to be required in all buildings for students, staff, and visitors. You may have read that the State has provided testing kits for students to school districts in the State. These kits arrived to Nassau BOCEs yesterday., December 30th and have not been distributed to schools of yet. Once they are in Lawrence we can begin a distribution process with parent pick-up basis. At this time, it appears the distribution process will not occur until after January 3rd. We will not be sending kits home in backpacks. We will be following protocols from the Nassau County Department of Health (NCDOH) related to Test to Stay (TTS). Please see the following about TTS: - The protocol applies to only school-based exposures to COVID-19 - The protocol applies only to participation in classroom instructions and it does not permit participation in extracurricular activities. Our effort to keep our schools open for in-person learning is dependent on everyone making safe choices to mitigate the spread of COVID. If your child has any symptoms you are reminded NOT to send your child to the school. Again, we are planning on a normal in-person return on January 3rd. As always, if there are any changes to this plan, we will keep you posted. Until we see you on the 3rd, stay well and Happy New Year! Sincerely, Dr. Ann Pedersen Superintendent of Schools Lawrence Union Free School District
