Due to recent guidance from NYS, Vestal High School's 2021 Graduation ceremony has been revised - 
  • Proof of vaccination status or negative COVID-19 test is no longer required.
  • Seniors may invite up to 10 guests, and no tickets will be required. We ask that guests socially distance from other households out of respect for others' space and preferences.
  • The ceremony will be livestreamed, and the Principal's Office will send out a link prior to the ceremony.

District posts Amended Reopening Plan... 
Taking into consideration recent updates to CDC and NYSDOH guidelines and a recent student/parent and community survey, the District is moving forward with bringing students back four to five days a week. As communicated to our families and community, we have updated the District’s Reopening Plan as of April 2021.

Updated Guidance for End-of-Year Celebrations from NYS DOH...
The New York State Department of Health has provided updated interim guidance for end-of-the-academic year celebrations. This very detailed guidance is informed by the CDC's Guidance for Organizing Large Events and Gatherings. See the article in the News column on this page or click this line to access the full updated interim guidance.

Updates to NYS Department of Health Interim Guidance...
As of April 9, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) updated its interim guidance for in-person instruction at Pre-K to Grade 12 schools during the COVID-19 public health emergency to correspond with earlier Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance.
 
Due to evidence that transmission risk ranges by student age, the CDC recommends that physical distancing requirements differ by grade level and community transmission risk. CDC has developed four levels of indicators and thresholds for community transmission of COVID-19. 


Shared from the Broome County Health Department...
Pfzier is currently the only vaccine approved for children ages 16 - 17. The District was notified that the Broome County Health Department has a number of appointments now available on its website. Please follow this link for more information.

New York State of Health - Special Enrollment for Health Insurance Coverage
With the closure of many businesses across the state, many New Yorkers are at risk of losing their health insurance coverage as a result of COVID-19. Many are likely to be eligible for health insurance with financial assistance through New York State of Health due to loss of coverage/income, and a special enrollment period for people who are uninsured was opened last month.
