Face Covering Update - 6/7/2021

  • Dear HPCSD community members: 

    At this time, this communication is written to clarify that there has not been any official legal change in the mask mandate from the New York State Education Department, New York State Department of Health or Governor Cuomo. The June 4th letter by Health Commissioner Zucker reported by the media on Friday was written to the CDC to determine if the CDC has any objection to relaxing its mask mandate. However, unless and until written guidance or an Executive Order is issued by the State, all students, staff and visitors must wear masks while on school property.  

    If we receive direction from the State that changes the mask wearing requirements at school, we will promptly communicate the change to our staff, students and parents. 

    Thank you for your continued patience with this difficult school year.  We are almost to the end of the school year with fifteen days remaining.  

    As of September 1, 2020, school districts were permitted to reopen, under Executive Order 202.60, “subject to adherence to Department of Health issued guidance and directives.”  These have included the submission of reopening plans to address, among other things, distancing and health requirements.

    SED has been in communication with Executive staff regarding the attached letter from Dr. Howard Zucker, New York State Commissioner of Health.  According to conversations with Executive staff, the intent of this letter was to obtain a response from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding differing standards for summer camps and schools; it has not changed any existing arrangements.  Therefore, schools should continue to operate under their existing procedures until further notice.  No changes have been, or will be, made by the Executive until after Monday June 7 to afford the CDC an opportunity to respond to the letter.

AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition

    Math Challenge
    Holland Patent Students Glen Gaige and James Gillett were coached by our middle school math teacher Mr. Richard Zacek at the 2021 AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition at Griffiss Institute in Rome.  The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Rome, NY, hosts a Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Challenge every year during spring break. The challenge is developed and led by scientists and engineers at AFRL. Each Challenge Team consists of two students and a teacher. Schools from the surrounding community participate in the Challenge. This year's STEM Challenge consisted of three parts. The first part was to conduct research into the domain of the challenge problem - Reinforcement Learning, Wargaming, Robotics, Game Theory and Decision Theory. The second was the use of a model to derive an optimal, generalized solution to a particular scenario. The third part was to provide a presentation of their work to several judges.
    The teams had one week to complete the challenge.   

    A big thank you to Mr. Zacek for taking on the coaching role and to both students for giving up your spring break to improve your education!
