Hudson Falls Central School District will remain on remote learning for at least two weeks after the holiday break. No students will return to our buildings any earlier than January 19th.
“This unfortunate disruption to learning is due to a large number of faculty and staff quarantined because of the latest COVID-19 cases in the school and the community,” said Interim Superintendent Jon Hunter. “Staying remote allows us to start 2021 by both supporting students and keeping our community safe.”
The District wants all students to be both supported and to return to learning routines. Like in the past, UPK and K Center students can expect delivery of instructional materials early next week. More details will come from each building’s principal. Beginning on January 4, 2021, all students in grades 1-5 have been guided to check into their Google classrooms. Teachers will be prepared to welcome students and return to learning.
Students in grades 6-12 should join their google classrooms for synchronous learning following their schedule for January 4, 2021. Buses will depart from the high school for New Visions, and CTE BOCES students. Early College is already remote for the week of January 4. Athletics will also pause for these two weeks.
The district will continue to serve meals Monday-Friday for any student. Meals are served at the Franklin Street side of our high school building from 11 am-12:30 pm each weekday.
We also offer outdoor internet access at two of our buildings. Students can connect their district-issued Chromebooks to our networks from the parking lot of the Kindergarten Center on Clark Street, as well as the east parking lot at the Middle School along Notre Dame Street.
“All year, it has been our commitment to maximize the number of in-person student learning days, with our unwavering focus on the safety of our faculty, staff, and students,” said Dr. Hunter. “And we felt that continuing in-person learning was not sustainable given the situation in our county and surrounding area.”
The District will continue to keep parents and our school community informed about any further changes to our learning. Please check the District website hfcsd.org for the latest information.
