June 8 - Updated Guidance:

The official mask guidance was issued yesterday. You can find updated mask guidance on page 2:


June 7 - Update Regarding Anticipated Guidance and Mask-Wearing No Longer Required in Schools 

I anticipate an official statement from NYS DOH and/or Governor Cuomo later today or maybe even tomorrow. However, based on the coverage that this topic has received in the past few days and the back-and-forth that has gone on, I wanted to reach out with the most current information I have to date regarding masks.

At a press conference today, Governor Cuomo stated that masks will continue to be required inside of school buildings, but masks will not be required for students and staff while they are outside.

Based on what I shared with you all yesterday, the plan we followed today, which we reviewed with Hamilton County Public Health, is what we will move forward with. Our inside mask policy remains the same, but when students and staff are outside they will not be required to wear a mask.

Once there is an official statement from NYS DOH and/or the Governor's Office, I will share that information with you all.


Ms. Noelle J. Short

Our School

Long Lake Central School is a K-12 public school that offers a supportive, engaging, and enriching learning and working environment. Our small class sizes offer students the opportunity to receive individualized instruction in a way that is not possible in a larger school setting. Our students participate in extracurricular activities and athletics and are offered a wide-range of opportunities for travel during their educational experience, with trips to Washington D.C., Boston, New York City, Niagara Falls, and other locations scheduled for various grade levels. 

Our professional, diverse, and talented faculty work in dynamic ways to create learning opportunities that mix grade levels, disciplines, and learning styles. We are 1:1 device school, where students in pre-kindergarten through second grade have iPads available for instruction, and students in grades three through twelve are provided with Chromebooks, with seventh through twelfth grade students offered the opportunity to take their devices home. 

At Long Lake Central School, we are proud of the work we do and we are extremely proud of all that our graduates have accomplished once leaving Long Lake Central School. We are situated in one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, the Adirondack Park, and are supported by a community who finds great value in a small school education and ensuring that our students and families have a safe place to live, learn, work, and thrive in. Our vision is to be a place that promotes open-minded, hard-working people who are equipped for life.
