The Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District’s COVID-19 health and safety reopening plan establishes and explains the necessary policies, practices and conditions necessary to meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and New York State Education Department (NYSED) guidelines for COVID-19, the State’s “New York Forward” guidelines, along with federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards related to employee safeguards and potential exposure to COVID-19. ​As the health and safety of district staff is our top priority, the plan has a strong commitment to those measures.

The plan and resources within this section were developed with the collaboration of key stakeholders, including all members of our leadership team, teachers from across all four of our school buildings, bus drivers, parents and one BOE representative. The resources within keep the safety and health of every member of our school community front and center in our planning.
