Students from the Rubin Pollack Ed. Ctr traveled to the Rock Hill FD to pay tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives as a result of the Vietnam War. As students walked the 360 ft of the memorial wall, their teachers explained the war and the significance of the wall.
On 9/11/19 the Career & Technical Education Public Safety Program conducted a memorial service at SUNY Sullivan. The students were held at attention while memorial renditions were read aloud.

It's Safe, It's Easy and It's Important
The 2020 Census is much more than just a headcount. It provides a picture of our community that helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals, and businesses. Responding to the census also helps communities get the funding they need and helps businesses make data-driven decisions that grow the economy.
Census data impacts our daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for services and infrastructure in our community, including health care, senior centers, roads, and political representation. It also helps us see how our communities have changed over time. That's why an accurate count is so important.
Your census responses are safe and secure. The census bureau is required by law to protect all personal information, and it is strictly confidential. Your answers cannot be used against you by any court or governmental agency, including the FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security, or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
For the first time, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, by phone, and by mail, to ensure the process is secure and convenient for everyone. This new system makes the questionnaire easy to complete.

Department of Health | Office of Children and Family Services | State Education Department Statement on Legislation Removing Non-Medical Exemption from School Vaccination Requirements
On June 13, 2019, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation removing non-medical exemptions from school vaccination requirements for children.
As of June 13, 2019, there is no longer a religious exemption to the requirement that children be vaccinated against measles and other diseases to attend either:
• public, private or parochial school (for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade), or
• child day care settings.
For those children who had a religious exemption to vaccination, what are the deadlines for being vaccinated?
Children who are attending child day care or public, private or parochial school, and who had a religious exemption to required immunizations, must now receive the first age appropriate dose in each immunization series by June 28, 2019 to attend or remain in school or child day care. Also, by July 14, 2019 parents and guardians of such children must show that they have made appointments for all required follow-up doses. The deadlines for follow-up doses depend on the vaccine.
Additional information will be forthcoming.
