Dear Corinth Families,
The COVID-19 (coronavirus) public health crisis is rapidly evolving, and Corinth has been monitoring the situation very closely. Although we do not have any confirmed cases of coronavirus in our district, we are joining with many other area districts to heed the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with support from the County of Saratoga and are cancelling classes from Monday, March 16 to Friday, April 17.
All extracurricular activities, athletic practices and games are cancelled throughout this period as well. Additionally, WSWHE BOCES CTE and Special Education programs will also be cancelled during this time period.
Given what we currently know about this public health issue, we feel closing school for this extended period is the most proactive and prudent action available to us. This closure is designed to help limit the spread of illness.
Throughout this time, we will be sharing a variety of educational opportunities and resources for our students. Families should look for more information shared via email and posted on our website.
Corinth Summer Food Service Program Availability
Corinth’s food service program that is typically held throughout the summer months will be enacted during this extended period. Breakfast and lunch “to-go” packages will be available to all Corinth families at the Oak Street Campus. Additional details about time frames for meal pickups will be forthcoming as plans are finalized. Please continue to check the Corinth website and emails from the district.
Talking About Coronavirus
Additionally, it is important for parents to talk about this situation with their children, as it could be a confusing or scary time for them. Here is a resource to assist you in speaking with your child about the virus: Talking to Kids About the Coronavirus.
Thank you for your continued patience and support. We will provide you with more information as it becomes available. We will continue to communicate with families via email, Blackboard Connect and our website.
Dr. Mark Stratton, Superintendent of Schools
