Good afternoon Connetquot Community,

The Connetquot Central School District has not been made aware of any positive cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) within the Connetquot community.   Due to the continued guidance from the CDC, as well as the New York State and Suffolk County Departments of Health, Connetquot Schools will remain open.  However, the district has made the following operational changes:

    •    Schools will be closed for students on Monday, March 16, 2020 for a Superintendent’s Conference Day for staff. Teachers will prepare educational opportunities for our students to be worked on independently, in order to be proactive and prepared, if we are forced to close due to confirmed cases of COVID-19.   

    •    Schools will be open for students on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

    •    Cancelled – SAT examination at the Connetquot High School that was scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020.

    •    Section XI has delayed the opening scrimmages and games for the Varsity and Junior Varsity spring season, however, practices will continue as it is only our students involved in our internal practices.

While we continue to teach our students, and all our classes are in session, we are limiting visitors to the building who are not essential to the instructional day.  All permits for outside groups have been suspended until further notice.  We are not having visitors in for parties, classroom events or any other visitors to the building that are not essential to the instructional day.
 
Additionally, it is prudent at this time for all families to review their child care plans for the possibility that the District may be forced to close for a minimum of 24 hours, and potentially for longer, in the near future.  

We are receiving daily briefings from the Suffolk County Department of Health and will continue to work closely with public health officials and follow their expert recommendations to best ensure the safety of everyone in our school community.  We will keep you updated to any new information and/or operational changes as this situation continues to evolve.

Sincerely,
Lynda G. Adams, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
