North Shore School District Advocacy Letters

Public Schools as Vaccination Clinics

Universal Mask Wearing in Public K-12 Education 

Please see the attached two letters (links above) which were sent this morning, from five north shore school district superintendents, to the following:

  • Ms. Kathy Hochul, Governor, State of New York

  • Dr. Mary T. Bassett, Commissioner, New York State Department of Health

  • Mr. Steve Bellone, Suffolk County Executive

  • Dr. Gregson H. Pigott, Commissioner, Suffolk County Department of Health

  • Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

  • Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director, NIAID, Office of Communications & Government Relation

I appreciate the professional collaboration and partnership between our district and our neighbors:

  • Miller Place School District

  • Mount Sinai School District

  • Port Jefferson School District and

  • Rocky Point Union Free School District

Upon review of the letters, you will find we are advocating for:

  • Schools in our geographical area should not be used as COVID-19 vaccine clinics for our students.

  • The metric that will be used to determine if/when indoor school mask mandates will be reviewed.

  • A review of the indoor mask mandate for athletes during competition – such as basketball, wrestling and indoor track.

Additionally, the school board and I will be writing a letter advocating against vaccine mandates for students

Thank you for your continued support of our school community.
