The school district plans to cancel any extracurricular activities as well as continuing education for adults so it is better able to clean and disinfect its facilities on a daily basis, ensuring they are ready for returning student and staff each school day morning.
The possibility of virtual clubs is being explored with our collective bargaining groups and may enable us to offer some options as we reopen. The school district will convey information to students, parents / guardians as it becomes available.
Interscholastic sports are not permitted at the time of publication of this guidance, and additional information on athletic activities is forthcoming. The start of the fall athletic season has been pushed back to September 21 (subject to change).
The school district is working with the YWCA to determine an alternative location (not the school district’s buildings) for it’s before and after school care as a means to limit use of the district’s facilities, ensuring the ability to clean and disinfect prior to the start of the school day. This may entail having the district pick up students and bring them to school from the Glenville and / or Schenectady YMCA’s if they are able to provide space for before and after school programs. The school district does plan to offer before and after school care through the YMCA once we are able to safely provide access to our schools. The planning for before and afterschool care through the YMCA is being managed by a subgroup of the advisory team for Instruction. As plans are developed they will be shared with district families,
Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&R) provide services to families. If you are looking for child care, the CCR&R for Schenectady county has a complete listing of CCR&Rs can be found on the OCFS website at https://ocfs.ny.gov/main/childcare/referralagencies.asp
The school district will continue to share information about daycare providers on its website at www.scotiaglenvilleschools.org.
