Back to School Resources During COVID-19

Suffolk County Legislature Seal

Dear Neighbor, 

Reopening our schools in the time of COVID-19 leaves many uncertainties – but the one thing that I think we can all agree on is the importance of getting kids back to learning as safely as possible. With 72 school districts in our County, each one responsible for developing their own plan within the framework of the state guidance, there exists a wide range of circumstances, perspectives and needs that must be considered as schools reopen for the 2020-2021 academic year.

During this time, many residents have reached out to my office for direction, especially in light of the critical role that the Suffolk County Health Department plays in working with school districts on the common goal to contain the virus through contact tracing. In an effort to provide families with key information to successfully return to school, my office has put together a resource list that I hope will serve as an empowerment tool for families as they navigate this uncertain year. To access the list, please visit

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy school year!
