BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) — The new school year officially started in Brockport Thursday morning, as it joined the list of one of the first districts to bring students back.

Ahead of the kids getting back in the classroom, News10NBC’s Lynette Adams took a visit to the district to preview what students and teachers can expect.

As with all schools across the state, the New York State Department of Health filed an emergency regulation that will require all students, teachers, and staff at all grade levels to wear masks in school. As we previously reported, masks were a tough topic for parents to talk about as groups loudly spoke out against the idea of masking.

That was before the DOH’s decision.

For Brockport, its Pre-K students will start the year next week Thursday. Additionally, every individual must complete a health screening each day they are scheduled to be on campus. District updates can be found here.

Rochester’s Vertus School also welcomed its students back Thursday.
