April 6th and 7th message from Mrs. Wenck
April 6 and 7, 2020

Good evening,

      I hope this email finds you well and enjoying a bit of pleasant April weather. Please read all of the following as it contains several important pieces of information:

* School Closure: While we are waiting for further clarification, we believe the Governor has  extended the closure schools up to April 29th, meaning that as of today, we are to come back to  school on Wednesday, April 29th.  There is some discrepancy on whether the 29th  or the 30th is the  correct date. Once we have clarification, we will be sure let you know. (This decision continues  the Governor's present extension process of closing 2 weeks at a time.)

* Regents Exams: The NYS Board of Regents has canceled all Regents exams. They made a more formal  and complete announcement today while also providing school districts with additional guidance on  this matter and how to assess students in these courses.  As we learn more, it will be shared with  you.

*  Instructional Packets: The 2nd round of packets for grades K-6 have been organized and made  ready for distribution.  We will be distributing the packets "officially" on Thursday, April 9th  via our regular bus routes. The buses will leave the school with the packets 3 hours later than the  normal student pickup time; meaning that if a students' normal pick up time is 7:30am, the bus will  be at their home at 10:30am. Students need to be outside at this new time with their first  instructional packet. The packet needs to be completed and in the original envelope. If you lost  the envelope, place the instructional materials in a sealed bag.

Students will place the first packet in a tote that will be on the bus steps. They will then be  handed their second instructional packet. The material in the first packet will be brought to the  school for review by each student’s teacher.

If you would prefer, starting on Wednesday, you can drop off the first packet and pick up the  second packet the school from 8:00am – 1:00pm.  Come to the main office to do so.

If you are a student who walks to school, you can come to get your packet starting on Wednesday as  well, or walkers can come to the school on Thursday from 8:00am - 1:00pm to pick up their packet.
Also, for students living in the Valley Stream Trailer park, a bus will be at the front of the park  at 11:00am on Thursday for the exchange of packets.

*   USB drives and Devices:  Included in some packets, for students in grades 7-12, will be USB  drives as was indicated as a need by the student to their teachers. Students having no or poor  internet will be provided with the drives which will contain information from their teachers for  classes.  These students do not have access to on-line learning so many teachers are video and/or audio taping their classes to provide instruction.

In addition, some of our students do not have devices/laptops at home to use to complete their work. Again, we have surveyed students in an attempt to gather this information. If your child has been identified as a student that needs a device you will be contacted by the school. Parents will need to come to the building to sign out the device. Before doing so you will need to sign a waiver form indicating your willingness to be responsible for the device and for replacement costs if the device is lost or damaged in any way. Please come to the school on Thursday to do this.

In closing, I know this is a lot of information and a lot of change. Our country has been through a lot in this and the last century, but nothing quite like this. I am confident we will make it through this pandemic and be all the stronger for it.

Take Care, Stay Well.
