Updated summer school mask guidance

Dear QUFSD community,

The district has received updated guidance from the NYS Department of Health regarding masks, and following subsequent discussions with Warren County Public Health and the district’s medical director, the following recommendations will be implemented as of July 12 for Queensbury summer school programs.

K-5 Students 

  • Unmasked (optional mask) when seated six feet apart
  • Masked when working in groups or moving around inside a classroom or building
  • Unmasked (optional mask) outside 
  • Masked on the bus for all students at all times


6-12 Students

  • Unmasked (optional mask) if vaccinated 
  • Masked if unvaccinated and closer than six feet in the classroom.  
  • Unmasked (optional mask) if unvaccinated and six feet apart 
  • Unmasked (optional mask) outside   
  • Masked on the bus for all students at all times

Please note, the relaxing of the masking mandate applies only to this year’s summer school session. Guidelines for the 2021-22 school year will be issued soon.
