Picking Up Belongings at GD

Wynantskill UFSD would like to let families know that the school is planning to have a “drive-through” process for families to pick up belongings left at school Monday, June 15 and Tuesday, June 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

To help ensure the health and safety of families and school staff, our custodial staff will bag belongings, which families can pick up in the bus loop near the gym. We will bring items out to families, including personal items, any medications, musical instruments, art projects and other student items.

Families will also be able to drop off any laptop computers, textbooks, library books, musical instruments or other items that need to be returned to the school. Staff will be available to pick up items at families’ vehicles. We ask everyone to practice social distancing and wear masks if you exit your vehicle.

Families with last names from A-K will pick up on Monday, June 15. Families with last names from L-Z will pick up on Tuesday, June 16. If these dates do not work, please call the Main Office at 518-283-4600 ext. 10. Thank you.

Your Vote Counts

School Budget Voting Information

The school budget vote and Board of Education elections will take place Tuesday, June 9. New York State delayed the date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Voting will take place only through absentee ballot, as directed by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order.

Every eligible voter will receive an absentee ballot and a postage paid return envelope in the mail.

You are an eligible voter if you are:

  • A legal US citizen
  • 18 years old by June 9, 2020
  • Registered to vote
  • Live within the Wynantskill UFSD boundaries for at least 30 days prior to June 9, 2020

Absentee ballots will be sent to all qualified voters on the most recent year’s poll lists. Anyone who meets the qualified voter definition but does not believe their name will appear on the school district’s poll list should please contact District Clerk Sharon Hillis at shillis@wynantskillufsd.org as soon as possible to ensure timely receipt of an absentee ballot.

Thank you.

Coronavirus Update

NYS Extends Closure Through End of School Year

On May 1, Governor Andrew Cuomo extended the school closure for all New York schools through the end of the school year.

The district has been preparing for this possibility but there are many details we need to work out, from celebrations to returning personal items to students.

We will keep our community updated about plans for the rest of the school year but please know we already are looking at creative ways to preserve celebrations important to our families whenever possible that follow social distancing recommendations.

Thank you.

Resource from NYS Education Department

Wynantskill UFSD would like to share a resource from the NYS Education Department Office of Special Education.

The IRIS Center has created a new module specifically for parents titled Parents: Supporting Learning During the COVID-19 Pandemic. This module offers practical tools and easy-to-implement strategies to help clarify what is and is not a parent’s role during school closure. It also provides information for parents on how to support their child’s learning and social emotional wellbeing.

The IRIS Center, housed at the Peabody College Vanderbilt University, is funded through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
