Update Regarding School Mask Requirement

Dear Niskayuna families,

This afternoon, Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the statewide mask requirement in schools will be lifted on Wednesday, March 2. This means that starting Wednesday, students, school staff and visitors will no longer be required to wear face coverings or masks in any of our school buildings or on school buses. Mask wearing will continue to be optional.

As always, we continue to work with our local county health officials as COVID-19 health and safety protocols evolve. If any additional changes to these protocols are made, we will communicate those to you. 

Thank you for your ongoing partnership and commitment to the health and safety of our students and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at jpennyman@niskyschools.org

Interim Superintendent of Schools
