Sunday, March 15, 2020

Niagara Wheatfield Families,

Niagara County has issued a state of emergency and the Niagara County Health Department has recommended all schools (Pre-K through 12) close for students, effective Monday, March 16 and until further notice.  Therefore, school will be closed for students beginning Monday, March 16, and until further notice. Districts will reassess student attendance weekly. There will be no extra-curricular activities, community events, or community education classes until further notice.

Staff will report on Monday, March 16 to their regularly assigned building, with the exception of bus drivers and bus attendants.

Also, in the coming days the District will be sending out information related to academic resources, and food service for those who receive free or reduced meals.  Finally, all staff are asked to check their email later tonight for additional information pertinent to their respective jobs in the District.  

The District will continue to use the Blackboard Connect system and our District website to share information with families.

Clearly, these are unprecedented times, but we will get through this by working together as a school community. I know you will do your part by taking care of family and friends, and by being good neighbors.

Thank you,

Mr. Ljiljanich

Superintendent

Niagara Wheatfield Families,

On Friday, March 13, 2020 a collaborative planning meeting was held with the Niagara County Health Department, Niagara County Emergency Services, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, and Orleans/Niagara BOCES Superintendents.

Based on the recommendations from the meeting we will be cancelling all school-sponsored travel outside of Western New York. The ban on travel applies to all students and staff and will continue until further notice.

Also, effective Monday, March 16, 2020 we are suspending all non-essential public gatherings that include more than 50 people. Non-essential gatherings include, but are not limited to, concerts, spectators at sporting events, and other public forums. Essential school-related functions such as food service, regularly scheduled classes, transportation services and study halls will continue as normal.

The Niagara County Health Department also requested that you direct specific health concerns to the County Health Department.

Again, the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus are rapidly changing and we will do our best to update you with new information in a timely fashion.

Sincerely,

Daniel G. Ljiljanich

Superintendent
