In New Hartford Schools, please know that we continue to stress proper hygiene to everyone, monitor our attendance, and we will continue to clean and disinfect classrooms, common areas, high-frequency touchpoints, and buses. We will continue to maintain contact and work collaboratively with the county and state health departments, CDC, and the New York State Education Department (NYSED). We will monitor new findings and trends and plan accordingly.
