Winter Weather and Remote Learning Days
In September, the NYS Education Department announced that districts would have the option to participate in a snow day pilot program this year. With our district’s capacity to provide classes remotely, Corinth schools are prepared to shift to remote teaching and learning in the event of inclement weather.
It is important to remember that neighboring districts have unique needs and challenges and may make different decisions regarding school closings, delays, and remote learning days. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child(ren)’s building principal.
How We Communicate this Information to Families
Any changes to a school day and/or how students will receive instruction will be communicated through the district’s Blackboard Connect system. Please make sure to inform the main office of your child’s school of any updates to your contact information so that you continue to receive these important messages. The message will also be posted to the school district’s website and shared via local media outlets. We will do our best to notify you of these changes with as much advance notice as possible.
On remote teaching and learning days, students should log in to their Chromebooks to access their Google classroom for virtual class meetings or class schedules and work on posted activities. Each principal has previously shared specific information to assist students with logging on. If your student needs a device at home on these days please contact your child(ren)’s school.
It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. This is particularly true in situations that involve power outages, which can affect the district’s ability to send electronic notifications.
