Clyde-Savannah CSD School 2020 Reopening Plan

  • Posting Date July 31, 2020

    The Clyde-Savannah Central School District’s COVID-19 health and safety reopening plan establishes and explains the necessary policies, practices and conditions necessary to meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and New York State Education Department (NYSED) guidelines for COVID-19, the State’s “New York Forward” guidelines, along with federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards related to employee safeguards and potential exposure to COVID-19. As the health and safety of district staff is our top priority, the plan has a strong commitment to those measures. The reopening plan is divided into logical categories. Each category contains guidance, procedures, protocols and/or other measures which explain practices that need to be considered in order to maximize the health and safety of students and staff.
