Middle and High School - 100% Remote - Friday February 12 As stated in Mr. Cipolla’s message, we are moving to 100% Remote instruction for Friday, February 12th. Tomorrow, our MS & HS students will continue to follow their normal bell schedule to participate in their classes. For our students attending Maple Avenue, PTech, Hewes, Randolph & Chautauqua Lake BOCES programs, the district will provide transportation to these programs following their usual daily instructional schedule. Our students participating in the LoGuidice CTE will attend their programs too. We will be picking these students up at home at the same time as we did back in January when we were 100% Remote. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Secondary Office.
Good afternoon Wolverines, Our district, grades PK -12, will move to fully remote instruction tomorrow. We have a large number of employees with the opportunity to receive the second dose of the COVID – 19 vaccine. We consulted with our medical director and anticipate that side effects of the vaccine are a possibility. The move to remote learning is out of an abundance of caution for our learning environment and not related to quarantine or rates of COVID - 19. Additional information will be shared by our principals regarding remote learning for tomorrow. Our school will provide meals for students tomorrow. Please continue to watch for additional information. Thank you.
