A Message from Superintendent Gumina A Message from Superintendent Gumina: Dear Webster CSD Community, Recent comments by Governor Cuomo regarding COVID-19 testing in schools have raised questions as they are contrary to what the state’s own guidance documents recommend. (See below.) “It is strongly recommended that schools comply with CDC guidance and not conduct COVID-19 testing or require testing or antibody testing of students or staff members. The decision of whether a test needs to be conducted should be determined by a healthcare provider or the local department of health.”

A Message from Superintendent Gumina A Message from Superintendent Gumina: June 2, 2020 Dear Webster CSD Parents/Guardians, As I have watched events unfold across the country and across the streets of our community, I have truly struggled coming up with the right words and message to send. Disgust, outrage, and sadness fill me at the moment, and as I spent time over the past 72 hours to craft a message of hope, empathy, and compassion, my anger kept getting in the way.

On one hand, we are ...
