The New York State mask mandate to have masks in schools is back in effect after an appellate division judge temporarily suspended or stayed, a previous decision ruling it unconstitutional due to the way it was instituted. As a result of this appellate court ruling, the mask mandate is back in effect for students and staff beginning on Wednesday, January 26.
It has come to the district’s attention that a third-party organization referring to itself as a sports media marketing group or sports promotion group has reached out to some local businesses seeking sponsorships for William Floyd athletic teams and promising marketing opportunities on t-shirts, cups, souvenirs, coupons and in-game announcements in exchange for money. This is a scam and an attempt to swindle local businesses out of their hard-earned revenue. Please know that the district would never partner with a third-party organization for sponsorships such as these. For your own protection, do not respond to any such email or click on links embedded in an email. If they reach out to local businesses by phone, please feel free to say “No, thank you.” and end the phone call. If you receive a correspondence like this and are unsure of its veracity, please contact the Athletic Office to verify at 631-874-1634.
