Minisink Valley school community:

gender neutral bathroom signPlease be aware that on Dec. 23, 2020, Gov. Cuomo signed into law Assembly Bill A5240A, amending the state’s Civil Rights Law and Education Law, to make all single-occupancy bathrooms located in public places, including schools, restaurants, bars, and other establishments, gender-neutral.

Signage is in the process of being installed within all of our buildings.  Schools are required to be in compliance by March 23.

Thank you.
