Dear Families,

We would like to update you about the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, which we continue to monitor closely.

Today, Section 2 postponed all spring sports activities through April 19. As a result, all sports practices are canceled until further notice.

Also today, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that as of now he does not plan to cancel school in New York State. Schodack CSD plans to open for school as normal on Monday, March 16, although all evening activities are canceled. If anything changes between now and Monday, we will make sure to inform our community. At this time, there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Schodack CSD or Rensselaer County.

Please know that teachers worked diligently during today’s Conference Day to prepare educational opportunities for all our students K-12 in the event we are required to close. We will continue to monitor things this weekend as events have been changing quickly.

We ask that if you or your child show symptoms of coronavirus, please reach out as soon as possible to your school principal or myself so we can work together to keep our community safe. Stay well and healthy.

Jason Chevrier
