The Schuylerville Central School District has made the decision to cancel classes effective Monday, March 16 in an effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The cancelation for students will be in effect through the end of the scheduled April break, Sunday, April 19.
In addition, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) has announced it has postponed all Section 2 practices, scrimmages, non-league and league contests through April 19.
Monday, March 16 & Tuesday, March 17: The buildings will be open for students to retrieve items from classrooms and lockers (including iPad Pros for students in grades 6-12). All K-12 lockers must be cleared out to allow for adequate cleaning, including gym lockers.
Tuesday, March 17: Additional information will be provided to K-5 families regarding the pick-up of a four-week educational packet that teachers will be putting together for each student. We will be encouraging those who are unable to pick up the packets to make arrangements with a neighbor, friend, or family member.
Despite the District’s closure, we recognize many students depend on school meals for breakfast and lunch each day. As a result, Food Service Manager Sarah Keen has taken steps through the NYS Department of Education to prepare packaged meals that will be available starting on Monday, March 16.
Meals will be free to all students under the age of 18, regardless of their free or reduced lunch eligibility during the regular school year. No identification will be necessary.
Meals can be picked up each day at Schuylerville Elementary School or at the Town Hall in Victory Mills from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Each student can pick up both a breakfast and a lunch.
- Breakfast: Cereal w/milk, fruit and juice
- Lunch: Cold sandwich or similar option, vegetable, fruit, and milk
The District will also provide meal deliveries for families who cannot get to one of the pickup locations. Please contact Food Services Manager Sarah Keen via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 860-309-7490 to arrange a delivery.
The District is still discussing a plan for virtual/at-home learning and will communicate information early next week. As more guidance from the State level becomes available, updates will be posted to the district website and sent via email to families.
Thank you for your continued understanding during these ever-changing circumstances. Our number one priority continues to be the safety of our students and staff.
