Last minute tips for today's eclipse: during the eclipse, there is no time when it is safe to look directly at the sun without using ISO certified filters, except during the short time of totality (if you are in an area that has totality). Do not use your cell phone camera to view the eclipse for it is not filtered properly. Do not use damaged solar glasses (scratched, torn, etc.). Please take the necessary precautions to protect your eyesight. Have a great day today and enjoy the eclipse.

At last night's board meeting, it was decided to give Monday, April 8th as a snow give back day. It is also the day of the total solar eclipse and this will allow parents, kids, and staff to participate in the viewing if they would like. The county and surrounding areas are expected to see record travel with thousands of people coming to the area or traveling through. We have eclipse glasses for all the students and will be delivering them to the classrooms sometime this month. Cross your fingers for a sunny day that day. Yours in service, Tom

Let’s Talk About Trees Canisteo Living Sign As most are aware, the district oversees the upkeep and maintenance of the living sign. In 2014, the original scotch pines were removed due to age and were replaced with white pines. Unfortunately, the first year of growth was hit by a drought and many of the trees died that summer. The district replaced the trees and continued to replace any trees that did not see growth as the new sign continued to grow. A few years back, we planted 8 saplings to fill the spaces after the last of the newly planted trees failed to grow. If you were to look at the trees today, you will notice that some of the trees have died, and some are beginning to turn a light-green color. The district hired an arborist to come out and assess the sign on November 6th. Unfortunately, the arborist reported that some of the trees have been hit with white pine blister rust. This is a fungus common to the white pine and can spread easily between the trees and the undergrowth, specifically the Rubus (blackberry, etc.) plants. Based on the recommendation of the arborist, we will begin to remove any dead or infected trees, so the fungus does not spread to the healthy trees, if it hasn’t already. With the removal of the trees, there will be evident spaces in the letters that will diminish the beauty of the sign. This will be a short-term issue. Once we have removed the infected trees, we can then plant the new tree in its place, which will take several years of growth to match the height of the others around it. The arborist recommends a different species of white pine that we will do our best to get. The recommended new species is blister rust resistant. The USDA recently mowed the Rubus and other growth in between the switchbacks in preparation for the planting of new wildflowers in the Spring. By removing the Rubus plants, it should assist in slowing the spread of blister rust. We appreciate your patience as we work through eliminating the dead and infected trees. Our hope is to get the sign back to 100% within the next few years, and beyond. Trees in Front of the High School This past summer, the utility company hired a tree removal company to come through the village and trim back any trees/limbs close to the wires. Unfortunately, the tree removal company did not hold back and removed ALL limbs facing the road. This has caused a few issues. First and foremost, the safety of the tree. Most of the symmetrical weight has been removed, leaving a higher chance of the tree becoming unstable in either high winds or heavy snow. If you were to drive down Greenwood Street and look at the trees, you will see that all the weight of the trees are leaning towards the school. Secondly, the aesthetics of the tree are gone. They do not look good at all because we have half a tree. With that being said, we will be removing the trees from the front of the high school in the near future. The plan is to replace the trees with another type that will not interfere with the lines running in front of the school. Yours in service, Tom
