As you are aware, the statewide universal mask mandate for schools was lifted as of March 2, 2022.

As you also know, health and safety guidance from the state and local health departments related to COVID-19 continues to evolve.

COVID-19 Protocols Update

Yesterday afternoon, Governor Hochul announced that the state-wide mandate for wearing masks in school will be lifted beginning Wednesday, March 2. The Governor’s announcement is based on data regarding declining positivity and hospitalization rates. However, while the school mask mandate will be lifted, counties and cities with high rates of transmission may still require masks in schools depending on local conditions. We understand that the New York State Department of Health and the State Education Department are preparing a final guidance document for schools. Pending the release of new guidance, OCSD will maintain our other Covid-19 protocols including social distancing, hand washing and sanitization.

NYS BMI Survey

New York State requires schools to track each student’s Body Mass Index (BMI) and weight status category, as reported on the physical examination form. Every year, the NYS Department of Health will survey 50% of schools for the number of pupils in each of six possible weight status categories. This year, Oneida City School District has been selected to participate in this survey. The information sent to the New York State Department of Health will help health officials develop programs that make it easier for children to be healthier. If Oneida is surveyed by the state, the district will share summary group data only, not individual names or information. Parents who wish to exclude their child’s data from such group calculations may contact the nurse in their child’s school by January 12th. The information sent to the Department of Health will help health officials develop programs that make it easier for children to be healthier.
