Good afternoon, our field trip buses that are at the Seneca Zoo today are being held up by other school buses and cannot leave until the bus line clears out. With that being said, our entire bus dismissal today will be late approximately 15 minutes and all busing students will arrive home 15 minutes late.
Kindergarten parents that are picking up their children at the school, please be advised that they will be coming back to the school approximately 15 minutes later than previously communicated.
Dear CG Community,
As I reflect on yesterday’s tragic events at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, I am heart-broken, angry, confused, and a mix of many other emotions. Today, I am writing to you not only as the Superintendent but more importantly, a fellow community member and parent.
At CG, we take our staff and school safety extremely seriously. We have committed to having an SRO (School Resource Officers) in each of our buildings and will continue that practice for as long as I am here. The SROs (Jamie Harwood and Kate Secondo), Chief of Police (Kyle Amidon), and I meet on a routine basis to talk about our safety procedures and are always looking at ways to make our campus safe. The district has taken particularly important steps to limit access of our buildings during the school day with locked exterior doors, badge only access doors, and visitors relying on main offices to buzz them in. Individuals are then in a secured vestibule that only a staff member can buzz them in or have a badge reader. In addition, our SRO offices are located in the front of the building close to the entrance doors and offices.
We are also required by law to participate in drills that will help protect our students and staff in a real emergency setting. Each time we participate in a drill, our team, along with law enforcement, will assess how we did and take active measures to ensure a safer environment for our students and staff.
The district several years ago purchased software that monitors not only our email correspondence, but social media accounts within the district. There are certain criteria (key words and phrases) that must be met before we get any alert from the company. Any time we get a credible alert, we make sure to put the right people in place to investigate. Although we may not be able to monitor all social media, we at least have a mechanism that may allow us to catch suspicious activity. The program also provides everyone with a place to report any concerns. Upon entrance to our website, you will see in the bottom right-hand corner an icon that reads “Share It.” We encourage anyone to report any concerns to the district and we ask that you leave detailed information and contact information so that we may actively investigate any concern that a staff member, student, or community member has.
Please know that we take safety seriously. Unfortunately, in times like this we are compelled to look at our own buildings and safety plans to learn lessons from a tragedy in another community and school that is experiencing a devastating loss. Our thoughts are with the families of Uvalde.
Yours in service,
Budget Vote tomorrow- If you usually vote at Somers Hall due to construction, we have moved the vote to the Canisteo American Legion. If you vote in Greenwood, that has not changed you will vote at the Greenwood Fire Hall. Both polling places will be open 12pm-8pm. Thank you
Due to the district using all our snow days and having to close on February 18th for ice jams, Friday, May 27th will now be a "virtual day" and the students will not be asked to report in-person. We will take this opportunity to do a test-run of what an emergency virtual day would look like in the future. All students (except PreK and Kindergarten) will be asked to take their devices home, Thursday, May 26th. HS students will be required to log into Microsoft Teams for each class and Elementary students will be encouraged to log into SeeSaw. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW THEIR BELL SCHEDULE.
This day was already in our schedule as a day off for Memorial Day weekend, therefore we are asking that our students attend virtually.
Yours in service,
Good afternoon. We wanted to let our families know that we are beginning to see a consistent rise of covid cases here at school. We want to stress the importance of keeping your child home if they are displaying any symptoms, even if you think it is allergies. We have plenty of home tests available if you would like to test your child if they are displaying symptoms, or our nurses can test. After many years of dealing with covid, we know the strategies used to curb exposure and transmission: masks, distancing, isolation, testing, vaccinations, etc. Please choose which strategy is best for your child as we deal with this recent surge in cases.
Looking for something to do tonight? Come out for the first Canisteo-Greenwood Girls Flag football game as the team takes on Edison High School at home. Let's show our support!!
It has been brought to our attention by the State Police that there has been an accident on Route 36 somewhere between Bush Hill and Gravel Run. They are unsure if the road will be clear by dismissal time and this would impact Bus 59. To our families of Bus 59, please expect a delay in the time that your child will be dropped off this afternoon.
Reminder-This Friday April 8th is Early Release Day. Elementary students will start dismissing at 11am, High School will dismiss at 11:30am. Classes will resume after Spring Break on Monday, April 18th. Thank you!
It is the time of year when we collect data from our families about our Leader in Me journey. Please use the link below to complete the survey. Once completed, you can let your child's teacher know and you will be entered to win a gift certificate to Annie's! We will pick 3 winners! We truly value your feedback and use it for future planning. If you have multiple children in the elementary building, please only take the survey once.
We will pick winners April 8, 2022.
Thank you so much!
We are contacting you to let you know our nurses will be performing vision and hearing screenings on the following students who do not have a vision or hearing screening noted on their health form. Grades PreK, K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, and newly enrolled students. Please call your school nurse if you have any questions. Thank you.
High School Parents- If your child is signed up for a spring sport you must log into Operoo to update the required Athletic documents for your child to participate this spring. This needs to be completed by Monday, March 14th before practice starts. Thank you.
Due to the power failure, all after-school activities are canceled.
