Dear Students and Families:
I hope this letter finds you well. As I mentioned in my previous letter, there are many changes taking place in school this year. These changes include updates to our Handbook and how we distribute it. Please find the following documents attached to this letter (posted above):
APPENDIX C- PHOTO/VIDEO/WEB OPT-OUT FORM
APPENDIX D- UPDATES IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
APPENDIX E- SIGNATURE PAGE
- All students and families MUST return a signed copy of APPENDIX E.
- Only those students/families who wish to opt-out of photo/video/web need to return APPENDIX C.
- APPENDIX D should NOT be returned. Please keep this as a record of the changes in our practice for this year.
In order to conserve resources, we will only be sending home a full copy of the handbook with new students (grades 6, 7, and transfer students in grades 8-12). Students and families outside of these grade levels and transfer statuses may request a hard copy from the High School Office. A complete copy of this information can also be accessed, downloaded, and printed from our school website by visiting this link: https://www.schoharieschools.org/schoharie-jr-sr-high-school-student-parent-teacher-handbook/
As a reminder, you must attest to your child’s health each day using this website: https://entry.neric.org/schoharie. Please save this address to your computer, phone, or tablet for easy access. You may also find this link at the top of our district webpage. This information must be completed by 7:30 a.m. each school day, or your child will be screened by the nurse upon arrival.
Also, students must wear masks during the school day. This includes on bus transportation, in the hallways, and in classrooms. Adult-directed mask breaks will be given during the day. Bandanas, scarves, and neck gaiters are NOT allowed. The school provided a Schoharie-branded cloth mask to each student, and disposable masks will be available for students on a daily basis, if needed.
Thank you for all you do to keep our students safe and our building open and running smoothly!
Kevin Calacone, Ed.D.
Jr./Sr. High School Principal
