Superintendent Memo: Unused Emergency Closing Days Update

March 24, 2021

The following message from District Superintendent, Dr. Abitabile, was emailed to all Lansingburgh families on Wednesday, March 24.

Dr. Abitabile's message is also available on district letterhead here.


Good morning Lansingburgh School Community,

Please note that Thursday, April 1st, 2021 will still be a regularly scheduled school day with full student attendance.

I am aware that this date is listed as a 3rd "give back" day if our budgeted Emergency Closing Days go unused. There seems to be some ambiguity on the use of these days during a declared State of Emergency by state and/or local executives.

Until I can get further clarity on the use of those days, I am unable to inform all of you of the plan for what remains of this year's school calendar. I am in hopes that guidance will be distributed by the State Education Department in the very near future that authorizes me to make use of these days.

I appreciate your patience on this matter and will communicate further details as soon as possible.

Respectfully,

Dr. Antonio W. Abitabile, Ed. D.
