Dear Oxford Academy Parents,
Teams at Oxford Academy have been working for weeks on plans for the eventual opening of our schools.
Right now, we're planning for three scenarios. A full opening in September, a modified opening consisting of blended learning possibilities and a resumption of virtual instruction until we are instructed to resume in-person instruction.
There are many variables influencing
this decision and there are numerous issues to be planned for in each
The Governor stated today that
more guidance for schools will be coming on Monday, July 13.
Consequently, our district plans for opening must be submitted to NYSED by
Friday, July 31.
A final decision about how we will proceed should be coming from the Governor's office sometime between August 1 and August 7.
In the meantime, we will
continue to advance our planning and we ask that parents begin to prepare
for the probability of children wearing face masks. We will have
face masks on hand if need be but we highly recommend sending children with
their own that they are familiar with and are comfortable wearing.
Further communications will be coming
as our planning continues and our understanding of this situation develops.
Thank you for your support and
John T. Hillis
Oxford Academy and Central School
