  7. COVID Update: 3 New...

Averill Park CSD Community,


Today (Monday, Dec. 14) the District was notified of three new positive cases of the COVID-19 virus, two at Poestenkill Elementary School and one at Algonquin Middle School.

With our staffing already spread thin due to large amounts of quarantines, these cases have put a strain on our District. As a result, all resources are being diverted in an effort to keep our K-5 students learning fully in-person. Beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 15), Algonquin Middle School will transition to full remote learning through the month of December.

Any remote students who will need food service should fill out this form.

Students at Poestenkill Elementary School, Miller Hill-Sand Lake Elementary School and West Sand Lake Elementary School will continue in their current learning model.

As with the decision to move the High School to 100% virtual learning, this decision was made after very careful consideration. The District strongly believes that in-person instruction and connecting our students to their school community are extremely important, though it must be done in a safe and effective manner.

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 during this difficult time.
