Waterford-Halfmoon UFSD

Hello Waterford-Halfmoon School Community,   

As we approach the beginning of the school year, many of you may be wondering what the new school year will look like. As part of our effort to keep our school community informed, we will continue to share information on reopening efforts for the new school year.    

The Waterford-Halfmoon UFSD is planning for a full return to school in September; however, at this time, we are awaiting guidance from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED) regarding protocols we must follow for the upcoming school year. Areas for which we need guidance are protocols for mask-wearing, social distancing in classrooms, cafeterias and on school buses. We will update our entire school community as soon as we have received and reviewed this information and completed our own reopening plan.    

Please know that we are taking the necessary steps to continue to ensure the health and safety of all our students and staff and provide the opportunity for all students to return to full-time, in-person learning in September.    

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your building principal or the Superintendent's Office.
