Letter from the Principal

Brandon Wojcik

Dear Students, Parents and Community Members –

I hope that this edition of The Perspective finds you well rested and ready for the final big push to the end of the first semester.  January will come and go in the blink of an eye, and there is a great deal of work to be done in a short period of time.  The midway point of the school year usually signals final projects and mid-terms for some students and regents exams for others.  This year, New York State has cancelled January regents exams.  The days set aside for those exams have reverted back to regular attendance instructional days.  January 27th is the only exception and will be a non-attendance day for students to serve as our last Superintendent’s Conference Day.

As we look forward to the second semester, we continue to evaluate our hybrid instructional model.  The reopening task force and instructional team has been combined into a group of administrators, parents and students tasked with evaluating and recommending improvements to our model.  We welcome any input from our school community.  Feel free to email any suggestions or constructive input directly to me. 

We are also pleased to report that we have successfully implemented and completed our NCCSD Yellow Zone Testing Program this week.  Over the course of last week, our nursing staff conducted 57 tests at the Jr-Sr High School and we received zero (0) positive test results.  As per the NYS Micro Cluster Initiative, we have demonstrated that “in-person instruction is not a significant driver of local viral spread” and do NOT need to test any longer while we are in the Yellow Zone to remain in the HYBRID learning model.

As a reminder, please fill out the screening questionnaire each week for your child or children. 

Kind Regards,

 

Brandon Wojcik, Jr./Sr. High Principal
