Letter from the Superintendent

Scott Taylor

As the first quarter of the of the 19-20 school year comes to an end, I would like to provide you an update on a couple of items from across our District: 

School Safety: Providing a safe learning environment is our top priority every day.  We recently approved our District Safety Plan and we meet regularly at the building level to discuss building safety.  Throughout the school year we focus our efforts on: training student and staff on emergency procedures; working with local and county emergency preparedness personnel; reviewing and updating our district and building safety plan; ensuring the completion of mandated safety drills as well as additional drills for evacuations and safety scenarios; and review collaborative efforts with Town and Village emergency preparedness services. 

Communication: We continuously reflect on ways to improve our communication internally and externally.  You may have recently received a text regarding a new communication feature that we are initiating.  Parents and guardians that opt-in to receive text messages from the School Messenger system will receive important text messages, straight to your mobile phone about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.  We are also using the email feature in school messenger to provide electronic information to our District families.  We will continue to use our District’s webpage, Twitter feed, Remind App and Jr.-Sr. High School Facebook page to provide families and the community updates from across the District. 

Capital Project:  On December 11, 2018, District residents approved a $10.38 million capital improvement project designed to address District needs in the areas of building repairs, heating/cooling, instruction and safety.  The plans have been submitted to NYSED for approval.  Once approval is granted (hopefully in December), bid specs will be sent to contractors, bids will be awarded and work will begin.  Initial capital project work may begin as early as the Spring of 2020 with the bulk of the work occurring in the summer of 2020.  More information can be found at our website under the Capital Improvement Project tab.

Please visit our website if you would like additional information on the District Safety Plan, Communication tools and Capital Improvement Project information.  On behalf of the Board of Education, the faculty and staff, the administrative team, and most importantly, the students…. thank you for your continued support. 

I hope to see you along the way!
