Students ages 14-17 who wish to obtain working papers during COVID-19 school closure should:

Please fill out the top of form AT17 including parent/guardian signature.
If your student does not have a current physical on file in the nurse's office, form AT-16 needs to be completed and then taken to your physician for a signature and stamp
Please note, as we have limited access to the Nursing Department throughout the summer months processing times may vary. However, form AT-16 can also be completed by your physician.

Questions and/or completed forms should be emailed to or as of July 6th.
When received, the application will be processed and an employment certificate will be mailed to a home address with instructions on where the student should sign.

To avoid delay, please make sure the application is legible and includes the student's information and parent/guardian signature. 
Once school buildings reopen, we will return to our original process.

District Reopening Plan

The purpose of this document is to provide an initial framework for families and staff to plan for the fall. The plan is based on federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidance, as well as several weeks of discussion and work by the District Reentry Team (DRT), and subject-specific task forces. Each task force worked with a representative committee of staff, parents and our District Physician to develop plans for three possible reentry scenarios: 100% remote, 100% in-person, and a hybrid or a mixed model.  Depending on the Governor’s final decision on the reopening of schools, we are prepared to implement any of these three models. In addition, if circumstances change throughout the school year, we are prepared to move between models based on directives from New York State.  (read more)
