September 20, 2021 Message from Dr. Vallely

Dear Lancaster Families,

Beginning today, we will be implementing our newly developed COVID-19 Case Dashboard. Our website will be updated in real time on school days with details about confirmed cases within our District. Therefore, as of today, September 20, 2021, I will no longer be sending you an email regarding each confirmed case, as we have throughout the past school year. The same information will continue to be available on the dashboard.

While my traditional method of emailing will discontinue, I will remain vigilant in providing you with accurate and up-to-date information on our website. I encourage you to check the dashboard which can be viewed at any time on the COVID-19 section of the district website. The dashboard will contain accurate and up-to-date data for the entire 2021-22 school year.

The District's comprehensive reopening plan remains available on our website and has more detailed information relative to our cooperative measures with the Erie County Department of Health regarding contact tracing and our health and safety protocols.

We ask that you please respect and honor the privacy of any individual in our school community who has tested positive and, instead, focus on the measures that we know to be effective in stopping the spread of the virus. Thank you for your cooperation.


Michael J. Vallely, Ph.D.
