Tuesday, May 26 will be a regular day of instruction for all students and staff. Although the district had expected to use the 26th as a give back day, the Governor’s executive orders requiring that school districts provide continuity of education, child care and food service every weekday through the end of the school year prevents us from doing so. Monday, May 25 remains a school holiday.
“I know staff and students were looking forward to a longer weekend, but we cannot put our state aid at risk by ignoring the Governor’s orders,” Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. William Silver said. “Additionally, we continue to be in communication with NYSED, our legal team and other officials regarding the end of school year schedule and we will provide an update as soon as possible.”
The district previously sent out an adjusted food delivery schedule that would have accommodated a four-day weekend. Please disregard that schedule and make note of the following updated schedule:
- Thursday, May 21 – Delivery of a single breakfast and single lunch
- Friday, May 22 – Delivery of a double portion of breakfast and a double portion of lunch. Each meal will also include a half-gallon of milk, instead of individual, smaller containers.
- Monday, May 25 – No delivery (school holiday)
- Tuesday, May 26 – Delivery of a single breakfast and single lunch
- Wednesday, May 27 — Delivery of a single breakfast and single lunch
- Thursday, May 28 – Delivery of a double portion of breakfast and a double portion of lunch.
- Friday, May 29 – No delivery
Food delivery will resume its usual schedule on Monday, June 1 with deliveries on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the deliveries contain double portions for students to enjoy on Wednesdays and Fridays, when there are no deliveries.
More information about our food delivery schedule, including bus routes and times, is available on our district’s resources page.
