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.
We know that we are stronger together. We need all voices to be heard on this important matter. Please participate in a statewide virtual conversation about reopening schools. You will be able to read and rate other participants' responses. Based on those ratings, the most important thoughts will rise to the top. All contributions are anonymous.
This is a statewide exchange facilitated by the 37 New York BOCES (Boards of Cooperative Educational Services). The exchange results will be shared with our elected officials so that they will have a more global understanding of the thoughts and ideas our community members have about returning to in-person schooling.
I encourage everyone to use the link below to share your thoughts and help evaluate the critical issues. If English is not your first language, there is a translation feature.

Student Locker Clean-Out Procedures
Round #1: Week of May 18th through May 22nd
Students in grades 7-12 may call this week to schedule a 20-minute appointment to clean out their lockers by calling Mrs. Davis at 684-5290. Appointments can be made this week for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the hours of 8:00a.m.-3:00p.m. All students should utilize the back entrance of the building to be signed-in and students are required to wear masks in the school building. Materials in gym lockers are also available for pick-up at this time and are assembled by student’ grade level and name in the main gymnasium. Bins are also available for the return of sports uniforms. Students will be able to return Chromebooks, textbooks and other school material during the week of June 8th through June 12th.
"On Saturday, the sign fairies (Mr. and Mrs. Ptak) secretly delivered signs to the homes of all of the members of the Class of 2020. We would like to thank everyone who was involved with coming up with and executing this great idea to put smiles on our Seniors' faces. We are thinking of you all!"
