Dear Lawrence Students and Staff, NYS Governor’s office and the DOH have aligned guidance to schools with the CDC. Masks OUTDOORS on school grounds do NOT need to be worn. The option to wear a mask OUTDOORS is a choice. Indoors, masks must be worn. Teachers and staff will direct mask breaks in alignment with our reopening plan. Our reopening committee met quickly this morning to confirm the newest guidance. NO MASKS OUTDOORS ONLY Thank you for you cooperation and support of one another. Dr. Pedersen
Dear Lawrence Families and Staff, New York State has relaxed the indoor mask requirement in schools. However, non vaccinated individuals are still encouraged to wear masks. There remains some inconsistencies between CDC guidance for schools and this NYS announcement . Once again we find ourselves awaiting further guidance. For now, Lawrence students and staff will CONTINUE wearing masks indoors. As a school community, you all have done incredibly well protecting yourselves and one another. The last day of school is coming up quickly, we look for a safe and healthy end to this unusual school year. Much appreciation and respect to you all. Dr. Pedersen
