Aug. 7: Gov. Cuomo announces schools can reopen
A message from Superintendent Brian P. Dunn on the reopening of Middleburgh schools
Reopening Middleburgh schools for the 2020-21 school year has been and will continue to be a community-wide undertaking. Board of Education members, district administrators, faculty, staff, union leaders, parents and age-appropriate students are committed to ensuring the health and safety of Middleburgh students and staff while doing everything possible to ensure and maximize each student’s academic achievements and success.
Thank you to the Middleburgh school community for its ongoing trust and support of our work. It remains critically important that we all remain flexible and adaptable, as plans may/will be revised based on the governor’s directives in addition to evolving federal, state and local mandates. The health, safety and welfare of our students, staff, and school community will always be our first priority and guide us in all our decision making.
We pledge that our commitment to academic excellence for all our students is even further intensified we continue to successfully navigate through the many issues and challenges we all are experiencing during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic timeframe.
Please note: The final decision on how schools will reopen this fall comes from the governor.
