Gov. Cuomo says schools can reopen this fall

Participate in a virtual community forum about our reopening plan at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13

Dear Fort Plain families, 

Today Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that schools in New York state will reopen this fall, based on current infection rates. We are currently awaiting more detailed information and guidance from the executive order and how it relates to our reopening plan. We will share any updates as soon as possible. 

We invite you to participate in a virtual community forum about our reopening plan at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13. We will also gather input and answer questions from families. You can access the forum by going to the district’s YouTube channel. It will be recorded and shared on the district website. 

There will be a question and answer period. We will answer questions from the parent survey we issued last month. You can also submit questions on this Google Form.

We are excited and look forward to having our students, teachers and staff members together again at school. We remain focused on developing practices and protocols designed to mitigate risk and protect the safety and health of all as we ensure the best possible academic experience for students. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or your school building administrator if you have any questions or concerns. We sincerely appreciate your time, support and continued partnership. 


John Bishop
Superintendent of Schools
