Free Breakfast & Lunch for All Students
Recent federal and state decisions now allow the District to serve seven days of free meals per week to all students ages 18 and under through the next school year. This decision is subject to change at the federal government’s discretion. The District still requires that households complete applications for free and reduced meals as usual and return them as soon as possible. Meals will be provided at no cost.
Even though meals for all students will be free through June 30, 2021, you should still complete a Free/Reduced Breakfast/Lunch Application so that these arrangements are in place for your student when the federal program comes to an end. Please do not wait to do so. That application can be found in the next section down on this webpage. If you have a change in employment status at any point in this school year, please complete a new Application
Meal kits will be delivered to your home on Wednesday each week. On Wednesdays you will receive 3 or 5 days’ worth of meals corresponding to your hybrid remote days and 7 days if you are fully remote.
Meal Delivery Form:
Parents/Guardians need to complete a Fall 2020 Meal Delivery Form to arrange deliveries. If you have any questions on completing the meal application, please contact Amanda Dishaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-483-7800 opt 3.
Bus Transportation for the 2021-2022 School Year
In order for your students to be assigned a bus to or from school, you must fill out the form linked after this paragraph by August 15, 2021.

Parent Town Hall Meetings
In order to give parents and guardians a chance to ask questions about our district's reopening plan, we held three live streamed meetings on Monday, August 17th, at different times through the day. Superintendent Jerry Griffin started each one with some brief remarks about the plan, and then answered questions that were submitted prior to and during the forums. He attempted to deal with different questions in each of the three, so all three have different content. Use the links below to watch the recordings.
There were many questions about social distancing in classrooms. Please watch this video to see what this will look like in our district.
