    TRANSPORTATION, SCHEDULES AND LUNCH
    Transportation
    Transportation to our campuses is provided by component school districts.
    If a parent/guardian wishes to transport their child to and from school, the drop-off time is five minutes before the school start time. Drop-off points will be clearly marked in each school parking lot. Students will be allowed to drive to and from our school campuses, however, students will need permission from their home districts.

    Schedules
    The first day of school for GV BOCES students is Thursday, September 10, 2020. All CTE students will attend their CTE program for two full days of instruction. This full-day schedule allows for the same amount and perhaps more instruction time than five half days. Wednesdays are reserved for virtual learning for CTE students. This day will be utilized for follow-up on projects, teacher professional development and planning. Special Education and Alternative Education students will attend for five full days of instruction. No changes have been made to their schedule. If your child is absent, please contact the school your child attends.

    Lunch
    Lunch and breakfast will be available for purchase. All students will eat in their classrooms. Purchased lunches will be delivered to classrooms. The prices are lunches - $2.30 and breakfast - $1.55. If students are enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program at their home district, this will also apply at GV BOCES. Students will not be allowed to leave campus for their lunch period. If students wish to bring their lunch, they are welcome to do so.

    INSTRUCTION
    How will instruction change?

    No changes in instruction are expected for CTE, Alt. Ed., as well as Special Education students who are enrolled in self-contained (separate) classrooms. The only difference is that CTE students will not be located on campus on Wednesdays. All remaining special education students (those enrolled in career and technical education programs) will also continue with supports and services delivered that are outlined in Individual Education Plans (IEP).

    CTE and Special Education teachers are working on the logistics of any work-study and/or internship programs to ensure student safety and security.

    HEALTH AND SAFETY
    Student Health Assessments

    Parents will sign an attestation that this is done prior to entering a bus or school building. The NYSDAOH guidance believes that all students must have their temperature checked in the morning of each school day. GV BOCES believes it is far better to have student temperature checks done at home and not at school because checking at home will keep sick students off of the buses, and checking at home protects the privacy of each student. Random temperature screenings will be conducted upon arrival at the BOCES campus/location.

    Masks
    All students and staff are required to wear masks when social distancing cannot be practiced. Ample time will be built into schedules that will allow for mask breaks.

    What happens if a staff member or student is suspected of having COVID-19?
    School nurses will have systems in place to screen students and staff who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms. Those individuals will be kept in a room separate from the nurse’s office that is designated for isolation. If their symptoms require further evaluation they will need to leave the building. If the school district is notified that a staff member or student has tested positive for COVID-19, the District Superintendent will work with the appropriate County Health Department to ensure all protocols relative to contact tracing and notification are followed.

    FACILITIES
    Schools will be cleaned every day and high-use surfaces like desks, door handles and bus seats will be cleaned multiple times per day. Deep cleanings will be performed on Wednesdays and over the weekend will be more extensive and include areas that students and staff don’t routinely touch.

    COMMUNICATION
    Who do I contact if I have questions?

    Please contact your child’s principal. Contact information is noted at the top of this page.  Start and end times for all GV BOCES programs are also noted.
