Happy New Year and Welcome Back - Community Letter

January 2, 2021

Dear Ithaca City School District Community, 

Happy New Year! I hope you and your families have been enjoying a safe and restorative few weeks. We look forward to welcoming folks back to distance and in-person learning on January 4, 2021.

When resuming instruction on the 4th, we will also launch a COVID-19 testing program. Your patience and support as we ensure all processes are safe and manageable are appreciated. The testing of students and staff will commence on Monday, January 4th, and Tuesday, January 5th.  

Families, if you have not already completed your child’s permission form, please access the document sent to your email or online here (along with translated versions). Your child’s school will send home paper versions of the permission form on Monday as well. 

Please remember to take your temperature and fill out your daily screener each morning before entering an ICSD building. If you’re having issues with the screener, visit our website or contact your school/department.

I wish you strength and peace in 2021. I am honored to be on this journey with you.
