District Reentry Team

  • In preparation for the 2020-2021 school year and in accordance with New York State Executive Orders, we have formed a District Reentry Team (DRT). The purpose of this team is to research, organize and develop protocols and procedures that will form the basis for a reentry plan which will be submitted to New York State for approval. This plan will also provide the students, staff, and families of Arlington with a framework for a safe, student-centered, and equity-based reentry to school. 

    DRT members have formed ten task forces to examine the following areas: instructional, health and safety, social emotional learning/mental health, financial planning, human resources, facilities (cleaning protocols), transportation, food services, technology, and interscholastic athletics. 

    Thank you to the parents, students, faculty, staff, and administrators who have volunteered to serve on these task forces. We will continue to solicit input from our broader community as the process moves forward.
