Statement Regarding Face Coverings/Face Mask Protocols

Commack Schools announced new protocols for mask wearing in our schools and the removal of sneeze guards from student desks effective 5/26/21.  Clearly, we were continuing our efforts to make changes during the Covid era that support the health, safety, and emotional wellbeing of our students.

The changes to our mask protocols were supported by the fact that the April 9, 2021, guidance from the NYSDOH in part reads: “Six feet of distance is required when eating meals or snacks, or drinking, or other times masks must be removed.”  Commack has been diligent in maintaining six (6) feet of distance for all students since the beginning of the school year. When we explained to the Governor’s office our strictness in keeping students six (6) feet apart since the beginning of the school year, they indicated that didn’t matter and we were directed that masks must be worn at all times.

Know that the safety and welfare of our students and staff, as well as compliance with State and local regulations, are at the forefront of our decision making.  Further, all safety protocols implemented earlier this year are still in place.  We will continue to advocate for changes at the State level that allow for parental choice as we work to provide the best possible learning environment for all children.

For help with the Daily Health Screening, please email: [email protected]. 

The Commack Schools have approximately 7,000 staff and students with about 5,000 currently reporting to our schools daily. We want to assure you that the District is following all of the health and safety protocols set forth by the CDC and the New York State Department of Health. 
We would like to take this opportunity to clarify the Department of Health mandated quarantine, in the event that your child is deemed a close contact resulting from exposure to COVID-19.  “Close contact” with a symptomatic or asymptomatic positive case is defined as being within six feet of the positive individual, for a prolonged period of time (ten minutes or more). Furthermore, the Department of Health has very strict guidelines for individuals who must quarantine. 

Below you will find helpful information from the Suffolk County Department of Health. Should you have an questions or concerns, please call 311. Representatives are available Monday-Friday 9am-6pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm.

Please visit our "Student Health and Nurses Page" for additional COVID-19 information under Forms, Files & Links.
