March 27 update: schools remain closed through April 19

Dear Schuylerville families, 

Earlier this month, the Schuylerville Central School District made the decision to cancel classes effective Monday, March 16 through the end of the scheduled April break, Sunday, April 19 in an effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

Decisions about school closures are now being made at the state level, as the impact and spread of the virus continues to evolve. On March 27, NYS Governor Cuomo announced schools will remain closed until April 15, with the 180-day waiver extended through then. At that point, the state will reassess if the closure needs to be extended further. Meal deliveries and child care for essential workers will continue to be provided.

Important to note: the Schuylerville Central School District’s scheduled April break is through April 19. Barring no further extensions from the state, classes will resume on Monday, April 20. 

Preparation for possible extension of closure
  • In the coming weeks, if there is an executive order from the governor with a school closure extension, at-home learning packets will be delivered to grades K-5 on Friday, April 9.
  • Students in grades 6-12 will continue to access learning materials from individual teachers through online/virtual means.
  • Any student in grades 6-12 who does not have WiFi in the home can request hard copies of all materials. Students in grades 6-12 should only be doing online work or hard copy packet work (not both.)
  • Requests for grades 6-12 packet deliveries should be made by contacting the middle school main office (518-695-3255, ext. 2265) or the high school main office (518-695-3255, ext. 2232.) Please leave a voicemail by April 6.
