School closures to extend through end of 2019-20 academic year

Dear Schuylerville Families,

NYS Governor Cuomo has announced K-12 school buildings and college facilities will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 academic year. Schools will continue to provide distance learning and meals for families. A state decision on summer school programming will be announced by the end of May.

Key dates
  • Thursday, May 7: The next packet pick up at individual student homes. It will cover the three weeks of student work completed from April 10-May 1. 
  • Beyond June 5: Packets were delivered with five more weeks of remote learning material through June 5. Teachers will be in communication with students directly after June 5 with work to finish the academic year.
  • June 9: Packet pick up at individual student homes. It will cover five weeks of student work completed May 4-June 5.
Grading
  • Grades K-5: Met vs. Not Yet Met vs. Unmet
  • Grades 6-12: Blanks will be in the gradebooks for uncompleted work with the expectation the work will be completed. With the NYS Regents Exam credits waived, the only way students can receive course credit is by completing the assigned work at the local (school) level. It is our expectation that all work assigned to students will be completed. Students will receive an incomplete if they have outstanding assignments or if they are missing multiple assignments. 

When the district first transitioned to remote learning on March 16, how the school year would end was unpredictable. School is a special place for students and teachers, a place we are used to being for 10 months out of the year. I am proud of the continued resilience of the Schuylerville Central School District. This is not easy and this is not ideal, but we have stayed united. Thank you for your continued support at home during these times.
