We all know that each day brings a new set of questions and challenges – in our climate today, it is inevitable. What has struck me as most powerful over the past two weeks, however, is the ability of our educators and staff members to be flexible in the face of uncertainty to best serve our students and each other. Whether it is by changing up the mode of instruction for the day, by finding a new program to better complete a task, or by simply demonstrating a positive attitude on a tough day — I see instances of determination day after day. It inspires me.

In terms of managing the COVID-19 pandemic at CA BOCES, we continue to be in daily contact with officials at both the Cattaraugus and Allegany County Departments of Health to make sure we are on top of any changes in our region. We will continue to update our practices in accordance with New York State guidelines and will communicate those updates to you when they are available. All updates will be posted on our “Up-to-date Coronoavirus Information” link on the main page of our website.

Please 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.

Stay Well,
