Update to school closing information: schools closed until at least March 31; backpack pickup information

Updated coronavirus information

March 17, 2020

Gov. Cuomo has determined that schools statewide will now be closed for two additional weeks – from Wednesday, March 18 until at least March 31 – though that date may be changed as the time approaches.

We recognize the hardship these changes will place on our families. Please know that the district is committed to providing you with continued support during the closure.

The previous notification about the school closing indicated it was a one week closure this week, ending March 20.

We are closely monitoring the situation at the state and local level, and will let you know if that closure needs to be extended.


The weekend backpack program, used by dozens of SG families every week, will continue during this school shutdown.

Families are asked to go to their usual school for the pickups on Thursday and/or Friday.  Parents will be called with a time for pickup.
