Statewide Virtual Conversation Regarding Reopening Schools

Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that New York school facilities will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year.  The Governor will make a decision about summer school by the end of May. As we look to the future, we must think about what a return to school buildings might look like and how best to support students, families and staff.

Parent Letter - COVID-19

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I hope this letter finds you and your family well. I have a few updates to share with you.

Memorial Day:  In observance of Memorial Day, school will be closed and there will be no instruction on Monday, May 25, 2020. Meals will be delivered Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the week of Memorial Day.  

Last Day of School:  As you know, the Governor’s Executive Orders closed school buildings for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year and mandated that school districts work through previously scheduled breaks including April break.  The school year is to be only 180 days long.  The following adjustments will be made to our school calendar to ensure we adhere to the 180-day school year:

The last day of school for staff and students for the 2019-2020 school year will be Tuesday, June 16, 2020.  This accounts for working through April break, and three unused snow days.

COVID-19 - Letter to Parents

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.
