Interim Superintendent’s update on school reopening

August 19, 2021

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Central School Community:

The district is moving forward on plans for reopening our schools this September. While the details are still being developed, our goal remains to open our schools safely for in-person learning by 100 percent of our students 100 percent of the time.

Fort Plain and districts in our region and beyond face ongoing uncertainties caused by rising rates of COVID-19 due to the Delta variant. We continue to work closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department and follow guidance from the CDC, NYS Education Department and NYS Department of Health. We also expect future guidance from state and regional school sports organizations.

We are working on a layered mitigation plan for school reopening that will take into account a number of factors, such as the spread of the virus, and outline measures needed to keep our students and staff safe, healthy and in school.

We will release the full plan in the coming weeks, before the start of school, with the overarching goal of maintaining a healthy learning environment where we can offer all of our students a full academic program and a wide range of extracurricular activities.

We will continue to keep you informed, and we again thank you for your patience and support.

Jeffery Ziegler
Interim Superintendent of Schools
