NYSASN Appreciates School Nurses!

This year school nurses face exceptional challenges as schools reopen in the midst of a pandemic. In recognition of those who go above and beyond the ordinary in their efforts to maintain the health, safety and morale of their schools we have created the School Nurse Everyday Hero Recognition. We’re still looking for those school nurses who go above and beyond! Send in your submissions today!

Each month we will review submissions detailing school nurses that deserve special recognition. The application can be filled out telling us the specifics about what you’ve done, or in recognition of a colleague. Each individual deserving of the School Nurse Everyday Hero Recognition will have their name, photo and description of their efforts posted on the NYSASN website.

State Education Department Issues Health and Safety Guide to Reopen New York State Schools for Fall 2021

 

On 8/12/21 the New York State Education Department released a health and safety guide to help schools and school districts as they plan for the 2021-22 school year. The health and safety guide provides schools with a resource to safely start the school year and sustain the educational process in a manner that serves all students and supports their return to in-person learning in partnership with the communities they serve. The guide is based on the best health and safety information currently available from the CDC and will be updated as public health conditions change. The health and safety guide, as well as other back to school resources, are available on the Department’s Back to School website.
