Schools closed remainder of academic year

During his press conference on May 1, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced that all NYS schools will be closed through the remainder of the academic year. This is to protect both staff and students until appropriate protective measures can be put into place. 

With this news, we will be working on finalizing plans as to how some programs/activities scheduled for the remainder of the year may be able to take place remotely. Details will be shared with you once confirmed. 

In the meantime, distance learning will continue to be provided, as well as Grab ‘n Go meals for students on Tuesdays and Fridays between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Vestal High School main entrance and in the auditorium parking lot at African Road Elementary. 

Please be assured that a great deal of planning has already begin in preparation for the eventual reopening of schools. We look forward to having our staff and students return when the time is right.
