This is a reminder about several important upcoming dates on our school calendar: 

“Go Home Early Drill”

On Thursday (Oct. 5), we will be holding our annual “Go Home Early Drill” in partnership with other Capital Region BOCES school districts. This New York State-required annual drill helps ensure we are prepared in the event an emergency early dismissal becomes necessary.

As part of this drill, all schools will dismiss 15 minutes early Thursday. 

Because of the early dismissal, please be advised that:

  • Afternoon buses will drop off students approximately 15 minutes earlier than usual.

  • The parent pick-up time at each school also will be earlier.

All after-care programs and extracurricular after-school activities will run as scheduled.

No school Friday (Oct. 6) or Monday (Oct. 9)

Please also be reminded that there will be no school on Friday, Oct. 6, due to a staff development day. 

Our district also will be closed Monday, Oct. 9, in observance of Columbus Day.

If you have any questions about our annual “Go Home Early Drill” or upcoming schedule, please email us at [email protected] or contact your school’s main office.
