Reminder about 2020-21 school year snow/weather-related closure plans

Minisink Valley logoFor this school year, the district will look at, on a case-by-case basis, how traditional snow/weather-related days are used.  If need be, we know we are fully prepared to pivot to remote instruction for everyone.

Going forward, please know that it’s possible on some school days where snow/inclement weather is an issue, academic instruction will continue remotely, because the district is fully prepared for remote instruction.

Additionally, the district may determine that based on weather forecasts and other factors, i.e.: possible connectivity, power or safety-related issues, a snow/inclement weather closure day may be called.

We’re doing this to minimize the loss of valuable instruction days and believe this decision is in the best interests of our students’ academic needs. This means it’s critically important that you give special attention to all weather-related communication we send to you.

Thank you for your attention to this important information.
