Reopening Public Presentation with Dr. Kotes
SUPERINTENDENT DR. KURTIS KOTES
Perseverance as defined by the Merriam Webster dictionary is, “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure or opposition.”
The past five months have pushed all of us to stay resolute in our purpose. Whether we are bankers or retail workers, truck drivers or nurses, doctors or educators; we all have been challenged to overcome significant obstacles in our personal and professional lives. We have had to find new and creative ways to serve our families, customers, students and patients. Each and every one of us is committed to a common good for our families and all of those with whom we serve.
As a school district, we continue to weather the storm as well. Our district reopening committee has been meeting regularly since June 9th, examining all of the different challenges that exist in relation to reopening schools. The group has studied data and information that is available from schools in the United States that have presented reopening plans and from other parts of the world where school has reopened. We have posted notes from our meetings on the district website so that the community can be informed about what is being discussed and planned. Our focus remains on high quality education for the children of the community while never losing focus on their health or those who work to educate them every day.
Governor Cuomo has stated that all schools in New York State must submit their plans for approval to the state no later than July 31, 2020. Once our district has an approved plan, we will also be required to post that plan on our district website. I will be planning to present the information to the community and answer questions as well. Please watch the website and email for future communications regarding the reopening plan.
On a non coronavirus related topic, we have an extensive amount of capital improvement work occurring this summer both at the Westlake Campus and at Hawthorne elementary school. There are parking and paving improvements on both campuses and interior renovations occurring to the classrooms at Westlake Middle School. These are all much needed updates and improvements related to the Capital Improvement Bond approved by the voters in 2016. We are planning for the final phase of this work to occur during the summer/early fall of 2021. Please check out the district newsletter for more detailed information on the work that is being completed.
As a district, we will continue to persevere. We will continue to work in the best interests of the children of the community to combat the challenges that we are currently facing and continue to look to a healthier and brighter future for our students, families, and school community!
