Notes from the Superintendent

Dear Patrons,

Where does the time go? February has now come to an end. The month of March brings the start of our spring activity practices. Hopefully, spring weather will now follow and we can put winter in our rearview mirror.

The school district will be having an early out on Wednesday, March 15th. The school district will be offering a half day of professional development for our staff. Central School students will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. The buses will leave the the Middle School at 12:45 p.m. There will be no school on Thursday, March 16th and Friday, March 17th. These two days will be our Spring Break.

Our second Parent/Teacher Conference is scheduled for Thursday, March 23rd. The time for this conference is from 3:30 to 9:30 p.m. As you can see, the conference will be only one evening compared to two evenings in the past. The fall conference was also one night. The Parent/Teacher Compensation Day is scheduled for Monday, April 17th.

The district does have a plan in place to make up the four days missed in November and December of this school year. Three of the days will be made up by using the storm make- up days built into the approved 2016-17 school calendar. Those three days are Monday, February 20 (President’s Day), Tuesday, April 18 (Easter Tuesday) and Friday, May 26. The fourth day will be made up by adding time onto the school day. We must make up six hours. This will be done by adding one half hour onto the school day for twelve days. This is equivalent to making up one day. I will be adding 15 minutes to the beginning of the day and 15 minutes to the end of the day. Bus route pick up times will remain the same and school will start at normal time (8:35 am). Students in the building will be required to report to their home room at 8:20 am and have a study hall for 15 minutes. The remaining 15 minutes will be added to the end of the day. This means school will be dismissed at 3:25 pm. This will begin on Monday, March 20 and end on Tuesday, April 4.
