Mayfield plans for reopening

Mayfield Central School District’s leadership team has worked to develop reopening plans for the 2020-21 school year, following the closure of buildings related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This summer, the district convened a Reopening Committee composed of faculty members who are parents of students in the district, alumni and staff members who met and collectively provided insight into the plans. 

The health and safety of our students, our staff and their families is our top priority. We want students and employees to feel comfortable and safe returning to school campuses. Our reopening plan incorporates recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

It is possible that we may need to alternate between in-person and remote learning throughout the year due to recommendations and guidance from our partnering agencies, and stay-at-home orders from the Governor. The level of infection, the spread of the virus and response to the disease in our community will be at the forefront of our decision making as we move to open our schools.

Dr. Matthew Lewis, assistant principal of the Jr./Sr/ High School, will serve as the district’s COVID-19 Coordinator. Dr. Lewis will work closely with our local health department and will serve as a central contact for schools and stakeholders, families, staff and other school community members and will ensure the district is in compliance and following the best practices per state and federal guidelines. Dr. Lewis can be reached at 518-661-8222 or by email at
