IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT BRIAN C. MONAHAN

Posted February 15 at 11:46am

On Wednesday evening, February 14, 2018, acting on a tip from staff at the transportation center, the district reported to the New York State Police that a bus driver had made a threat of violence directed toward other district employees. At no time was a threat made directly involving our students, and/or our schools. Following the investigation into this matter, the State Police made the determination to arrest the driver. We will continue to assist law enforcement with their investigation. 

 

Due to the swift response on the part of the district and the State Police, no imminent threat exists and we have encouraged our faculty, staff and students to carry on with their instructional day. As always, the faculty and staff at Minisink Valley Central Schools remain vigilant in our efforts to ensure a safe environment for our students and school community.

FIGHTING THE FLU WITH FACTS

Posted February 1 at 3:11pm

To help you and your family in this record-breaking flu season, we are sharing a Facts Sheet with tips to help prevent its spread.

The flu — also known as influenza — is a contagious illness that affects the nose, throat, lungs and other parts of the body and can spread quickly from one person to another, according to the New York State Department of Health (DOH). It can cause mild to severe illness and be fatal, especially for those age 65 and older. Across the United States, the flu causes about 12,000 to 56,000 deaths. About 90 percent of these deaths occur in people 65 years or older.

This season, there has been one influenza-associated pediatric death reported to the New York State DOH.

The district has also shared a Fact Sheet specifically designed for teachers and staff.
