SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE 5/1/2020 SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE 5/1/2020: Happy Friday! While I am not surprised, I am sad to report that we have an updated Executive Order from Governor Cuomo that has  closed schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year .   We will continue providing distance learning and meals to our students.   We understand this is needed to provide social distancing, but we also miss interacting with your children.  While this is a difficult time for all of us, I do believe this is best to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.   We will have many decisions to make and plan to keep you updated as they are made.  Please know that we listen to your feedback and concerns and make changes as needed to help students and families during this unique time.   The good news ...

SCHOOL CLOSURE EXTENSION UNTIL APRIL 29, 2020 SCHOOL CLOSURE EXTENSION UNTIL APRIL 29, 2020: Hello everyone, In case you have not already heard, Governor Cuomo has extended the shut down of schools another two weeks.  Schools will now remain closed until at least April 29.  We will continue distance learning until we are allowed to return to school.   I also want to clarify something that was brought to my attention about breakfast and lunch this week.  I was told that a few people wondered why students still had school this week, but were not getting breakfast and lunch.  As I mentioned previously, our cafeteria and transportation staff have been working very diligently preparing and delivering not only breakfast and lunch for anyone who requested it or picked it up, but also delivering packets of work to homes.  They have been doing ...

April 1, 2020: CLARIFICATIONS April 1, 2020: CLARIFICATIONS: Hello everyone. Sorry for sending out two emails in one day, but I have had this question several times over the past couple days, so I figured I would share the information with you all. I have been asked why we are scheduled to open school on April 15 when President Trump extended social distancing to April 30.   While President Trump's recommendation is to continue social distancing until April 30, it does not go in effect for NYS unless Governor Cuomo gives us an Executive Order.  As of right now, Governor Cuomo's order is only until April 14.  The Governor has jurisdiction in this case.  I understand the balance of power can be confusing at times. Governor Cuomo prefers to close in two week increments so he doesn't have ...
Letter of Support April 1, 2020 Letter of Support April 1, 2020: Hello families, I am reaching out to you with reassurance and support.  With the recent Executive Order from Governor Cuomo, I sense that many of you are feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of providing your children with instruction over spring break.  So many of you have diligently and valiantly facilitated the instruction our teachers have designed for distance learning.  While we understand that students will educationally benefit from the continuity over the "April break," I don't want families to stress out over strict schedules.  Distance learning has never been meant to mimic the 7+ hour days that students receive when they attend the actual school building.  Mental health is equally important as academic learning, especially ...
Spring Break Info. and Other Helpful Resources 3/31/2020 Spring Break Info. and Other Helpful Resources 3/31/2020: Hello Newfield Families, I want to thank you all for your support with the transition to online/home instruction.  I know this is not an easy task.  This is a new experience for our teachers too, so we appreciate the positive comments you have been sharing with us.   With the extension of school closure through April 14 per Governor Cuomo's Executive Order, school districts are required to provide instruction over spring break.  The Newfield BOE will be changing the 2019-20 School Calendar to make April 6-10 school days instead of spring break.   Teachers will be notifying parents what the plan for the continued learning will look like by class/grade level.    If your child needs any materials, they will be delivered ...

Cuomo School Opening Update: Hello families.   Governor Cuomo has extended his Executive Order for the closing of schools.  School is now slated to open on  Wednesday, April 15 , unless he orders another extension.   If teachers need to send additional work home for your children, it will be delivered on Friday, April 3.  We are not allowed to put items in mailboxes, so they will leave them on the ground next to the mailboxes.  Many of you will not receive  more materials as you are getting your academic work through digital sources.  Also, most teachers sent enough work to cover this extra time.   Due to COVID-19, we do not want you to send hard copies of student work back to school.  We don't want to take the chance of spreading ...

TECHNOLOGY UPDATE 3/20/20 TECHNOLOGY UPDATE 3/20/20: Hello Newfield Families, We hope you are all staying safe during this unique experience. We are aware that we have many students here in Newfield who do not have internet access at home and, while there is no single solution to that challenge, we have put together some information and resources that may be helpful. As mentioned in prior communications, we do have internet access available in the campus parking lot, both near the elementary school in the bus lane (evening only, as busses and delivery vehicles are still in use during the day) and at the top of the parking lot near the MS/HS drop off zone. Additionally, there are plans to install an additional outdoor access point in the parking lot to further extend the accessible area. Both the Newfield Library and Town Hall have open ...
