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.

The charts included will reflect the number of daily positive COVID-19 cases for the William Floyd School District. These charts will be updated on a daily basis when school is in session; the same figures are available at the NYS COVID Report Card link.

Although she didn’t graduate from William Floyd, Alicia Arendt spent the first 10 years of her schooling here and still holds her childhood community close to her heart. She has had the opportunity to travel all around the world due to her job as a United States diplomat, working on behalf of the U.S. government serving overseas to advance the interests of the American people. She is proud to share her stories from back home about the schools and towns that she grew up in. Much of Alicia’s family still resides on Long Island and one of her goals is to inspire the current generation of William Floyd students.
