Syracuse City School District Superintendent Jaime Alicea Regarding ‘In-Person Learning’

On Thursday March 4th 2021 this statement was released by Syracuse City School Superintendent Jaime Alicia, “Today, County Executive McMahon and Dr. Gupta, County Health Commissioner released guidance regarding increased in-person learning for students throughout the County.  This includes reducing the distance students must be apart from six feet to three feet.  This will allow us to have more children in the classroom as long as they are wearing masks and have their desk barriers in place.”

“We will continue to work on the logistics of offering more in-person instructional days for our students based on this new guidance and the feedback from our families and our staff. Bringing students back in-person on more days will take some time as we need to look at the data collected from the surveys, develop a plan for transportation, develop academic schedules, listen to our families and staff and much more.”
