Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you may already be aware, on Friday, May 1, 2020 Governor Cuomo announced all New York State schools must continue remote learning through the end of the academic year. This decision is one that causes mixed emotions but ultimately was made in the interest of public health. We will continue to provide instruction remotely and provide meals through the end of the school year. We will be making decisions regarding end of year events and protocols in the upcoming weeks.
This is a challenging situation and we appreciate your patience. We are extremely proud of our students, parents, and staff. They have all worked together to make the best of remote learning. We too are disappointed that our end of year events will look different than they have in the past. We will find ways to celebrate the accomplishments of our students while adhering to New York State regulations. We always put the students first in our district and community.
The senior class of 2020 is a group of students I have personally watched grow since they entered in Kindergarten. I know this is a difficult way to end their Senior year. Please know we will work with you and their class advisor to still make their graduation special.
We understand the range of emotions you and your child maybe experiencing. If you or your child need support please reach out to our counseling offices.
John W. Donohue
Interim Superintendent of Schools
