Friday, April 17, 2020

Dear parents and guardians,

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced during his April 16 press briefing that New York state will remain “on pause” through Friday, May 15 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

As part of this order, schools throughout the state will remain closed through May 15. The governor could extend the closure again if he feels it is necessary to contain the virus. If that order is not extended, school would begin on Monday, May 18.

While Scotia-Glenville sporting practices and events, rehearsals, shows, school events, activities and after-school programs remain canceled during this time, we will continue providing meals to families. Find out more about that at this link –

Child care services for essential workers are also being provided. Find out more about that at this link –

Our teachers have been in contact with students and their families to provide instructional materials, and will continue to do so throughout this extended closure in accordance with the district’s plan for continuing instruction. Find out more about that at this link –

We appreciate families’ patience and flexibility during this time. We know this is a challenging time for everyone. The district will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. [Include information on where information will be posted.
