Friday, March 17 will be regular school day

Winter weather finally caught up with the Central Valley CSD calendar. We have used all our allotted emergency days.

To meet New York requirements for instructional days, we need to take back scheduled days off. We weighed the options and decided to make this Friday’s Superintendent’s Conference Day a regular school day. All students and staff will report for school on Friday, March 17th.

This is not an easy decision. This will create child care and transportation issues for many of our Thunder families. The alternative, however, is to start taking days from Spring Recess—a time when many have already made vacation plans and purchased airfare or lodging.

Let’s hope, this is the last time we need to use an emergency day. Any more and we will be forced to make the more difficult decision to take back vacation days.
