Schools are an important part of the community and are charged with the care and instruction of a community’s youngest members. Therefore, during a public health emergency, schools and districts are integral parts of a state’s emergency response plan. Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 202.4, school districts in NYS are required to establish and submit plans for the care of children of essential personnel across a wide array of critical professions and occupations that are necessary to protect and support the public.
