Averill Park CSD families,
As you are aware, the District does not have any remaining emergency days for the 2022-23 school year. In the event of a school closure tomorrow (Tuesday, February 28) due to inclement weather, students should be prepared to learn remotely.
The pivot to remote learning would help preserve future vacation days, ultimately avoiding the District having to cut Spring Break short for students and staff, which would severely impact student attendance and the education that can be provided on those days.
At the elementary level, students in grades K-1 will be sent home with paper copies of work to be completed and returned to their teacher on Wednesday. Students in grades 2-5 will be sent home with Chromebooks and should be prepared to log-in to complete work throughout the day. Information will be provided by your child’s homeroom teacher. Completion of the packet (K-1) and participation in remote learning (2-5) will be used as confirmation of your child being in attendance during our remote instructional day.
Both Middle School and High School students will be required to log-in to classes remotely using their Chromebooks. Students must participate in all classes to be considered present for the instructional day. Please check your email for more information from building principals regarding remote learning.
While the District is preparing for this transition, please know that no decision has been made at this time regarding a school closure or delay. To find the latest information on delays and closures, check your email, text messages, the District website / social media pages, and local TV and radio stations.
If anyone has any questions, or is in need of an internet hotspot, please contact your respective building principal.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
