2022 - 2023

September 1, 2022

Dear Sawyer Community,

As we begin the school year, there has been an update on the COVID-19 mitigation requirements for Public Schools from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). You can find all of the issued guidance on the following web page:

Below are some highlights from the guidance: 

We advise individuals to monitor the COVID-19 Community Level and to follow CDC recommended guidelines, which include wearing a high-quality mask indoors when the COVID-19 Community Level is high, or if you have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19.  You can check Community Level here:


In addition to the above, we will no longer send daily updates of the number of positive cases to you.  However, if we identify a cluster of positive cases in a specific classroom(s), we will notify the parents/guardians of the student in the affected classroom(s) about the potential exposure.  

The Saugerties Central School District will be following guidance from NYSDOH, NYSED, and The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If we receive any changes to the current guidance, we will share this with you in a timely manner.

If you have any questions, please contact your building principal. Test kits are available in each building for you to take. 

We are looking forward to seeing our students on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.  



Kirk Reinhardt
