School Closure Extended to 4/13

Dear Parents, Guardians and Schenevus Community,

Due to the ever-changing nature of the situation surrounding COVID-19, I have a very important update to share with you relative to a school closure extension.

Under a 30-day State of Emergency Order issued by David Bliss, Otsego County Board Chairman, the Schenevus Central School District will now extend its 14-day closure through Monday, April 13, in order to be in alignment with Otsego County's State of Emergency Order. 

After further conversation with Mr. Bliss and the Otsego County Department of Health, we have learned that the school closure recommendation will be extended beyond the original 14 days. In accordance with the recent Otsego County State of Emergency Order and Department of Health recommendation, all Otsego County school districts, as well as the Otsego Northern Catskills BOCES, have unanimously agreed to extend school closures through Monday, April 13, 2020. As such, classes will resume on Tuesday, April 14.

Emergency closings and vacation days 

Canceling classes through April 13 may result in the loss of the district's remaining emergency closing (snow) days in addition to scheduled vacation time. At this point, we had 1 snow day left, and our next vacation day following the April break is May 22nd. We are trying to determine how the closure will impact the school calendar for the remainder of the academic year. We will share more information as soon as it is available. A revised calendar will be created and sent to you prior to returning on April 14th.


In addition, the Spring athletic season is on hold until our return on April 14th. Coaches can't ask students to practice, but can ask them to strengthen their fitness levels to be ready for the season to start upon our return. Students should continue exercising social distancing and limiting their interaction with large groups. 

I wish you all great health now and always. PLEASE continue to visit our district website and Facebook page for any future updates.
