  7. Return to In-Person Learning...

Averill Park CSD Community,


The Averill Park Central School District will return all K-12 students to hybrid and in-person learning beginning Monday, November 30.

Students in K-5 will return fully five days per week while Algonquin Middle School and Averill Park High School will return in a hybrid setting. All Questar III BOCES programs (CTE, New Visions, Tech Valley High, Special Education) will be in-person, as well.

The decision to move the District to remote instruction was not made lightly, and the decision to return to in-person instruction was also made after very careful consideration. While we know that the decision to go remote severely impacted our students and their families, we believe it has led to the District reducing the spread of the virus in our school community. 

This decision to return to in-person instruction was made after a thorough analysis of the positive cases that we have had in the District, as well as the resulting quarantines. The move to remote learning allowed the District to get our cases and contact tracing under control. At the K-12 level, health metrics and staff capacity are currently in a safe position for students and staff to return to our buildings. The District strongly believes that in-person instruction and connecting our students to their school community are extremely important.

District administrators will monitor and analyze data related to the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to communicate any changes that occur to instructional models. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
