So Now What...
Well, it is safe to say that the last week has flooded public schools with information and left most people asking someone (if not themselves), "Now What?". Between adjustments to the CDC guidance on public schools to the Oneida County strategies on what they call "ideal" situations, there is a lot of valid questions being raised by all parties. The CDC guidance is certainly the most promising bit of new information that we have seen in a long time. While there is a lot to read in totality, the CDC's summary of recent changes to their Operational Strategies includes:
- Revised physical distancing recommendations to reflectat least 3 feet in classrooms between students and provide clearer guidance when greater distance (such as 6 feet) is recommended.
- Clarified that ventilation is a component of strategies to clean and maintain healthy facilities.
- Removed recommendation for plastic barriers.
- Clarified the role of community transmission in decision-making.
- Added guidance on interventions when clusters occur.

Emergency Go Home Drill
Each year, the Madison-Oneida BOCES and their component districts conduct a 'Emergency Go Home' drill meant to mimic the need for an early dismissal. This year's Emergency Go Home drill is scheduled for Thursday, April 1, 2021. On this date, all students will be dismissed 15 minutes earlier than scheduled.
