You have no doubt been paying extra close attention to local coverage of COVID-19 cases in our region, specifically in our component school districts. As such, I wanted to reiterate that at CA BOCES we continue to be guided by the reopening plans and health practices that we put in place prior to the start of the school year to make sure that our programs and facilities are as safe and as productive as possible for students and staff members. We are in daily contact with administrators at component school districts and with officials at both the Cattaraugus and Allegany County Departments of Health to make sure we are making the most informed choices – in the moment – for students in our region. We will continue to update our practices in accordance with New York State guidelines, as needed, and will communicate those updates to you when they are available. I encourage you to continue to practice the habits that will keep you and the community as safe as possible, like washing your hands, wearing a mask, and practicing social distancing.

On a lighter note, I was pleased to recently participate, along with other members of the CA BOCES administrative team, in the 10th Annual Virtual Southern Tier Corporate Challenge sponsored by the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce. It was great to focus on physical activity and team spirit, and I was especially pleased to see others participate, BOCES-wide. We live in a beautiful region and this was a great motivator to get out and enjoy it. Thank you to all who participated!
