Minisink Valley school community:
We’re sharing the updated mask guidance from New York State released last evening. Effective today, March 2, the state no longer has a requirement that students and staff wear masks in school and Minisink Valley has adopted a “mask optional” policy.
New York State updated school mask guidance
Additionally, for your awareness and information, we’re sharing a joint letter sent to school officials from officials at the state departments of health and education and an FAQ document from the state.

As a reminder, should local conditions change, Minisink Valley — like all New York State schools — must and will follow all New York State Department of Health guidance if conditions require any future policy change.
Thank you for your attention to this important information.
