Nassau Executive Laura Curran is looking for widespread changes in school COVID-19 guidance, a request she outlined in a letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo Wednesday.
Curran said it was time the state "reassess" how schools operate under current COVID-19 protocols, citing rising vaccination numbers and lowering infection figures. The letter comes just ahead of the Pfizer vaccine's expected opening to those ages 12+.
Curran ultimately requested Cuomo look at mask protocols and hybrid learning.
The county executive cited concerns from parents about the effects that the protocols are having on their kids.
"Our children deserve to have a normal education and to get their lives back as quickly as possible," she says in the letter.
Curran also wants Cuomo to allow high school seniors in Nassau to participate in full graduation and prom ceremonies this year.
