Snow Day News & Letter from Superintendent

I know most of you have seen the weather forecast for later this week and of course that is getting the traditional snow day conversations started.  
I want to share with you our approach to snow days this year now that the NYSED department has approved a "snow day pilot" (for one year) for virtual remote learning to be acceptable as student attendance days.
First prong:
If and when we have a need for a snow day our 1st snow day of the year will be a traditional snow day where students, teachers and support staff do not work or attend school.
Second prong:
If we have more than one snow day our approach will be this:
  • Teachers will connect with their students remotely.  
  • Students will connect remotely with their teachers at the designated time dependent upon the virtual day schedule.  If the snow day is on a Monday you would connect as you normally would on Mondays.  Same goes for any other day.
We are taking this approach this year because it is extremely important that we remain connected with our students on as many days as possible in order to support them academically, socially and emotionally.
