Dear CDE Families, Yesterday at school, we discussed plans for developing and distributing materials for remote instruction. Time was also spent discussing remote instruction with students to help them understand this shift in the learning environment, how teachers will communicate with them, and what types of materials will be provided during this time.
After consulting with local Departments of Health, superintendents in the Questar III BOCES region of Rensselaer, Columbia, and Greene counties decided to cancel all classes effective Wednesday, March 18 until Friday, March 27 out of an abundance of caution. Student attendance at Cairo-Durham will cease beginning Tuesday, March 17 while teachers participate in a professional development day. Read more details here.
Superintendent Wetherbee issued the following update on the District's plan regarding the ongoing public health crisis:
Following guidance from local and federal health officials, we are taking proactive measures in light of public health concerns. Therefore, several school events and activities are being canceled or postponed and will be rescheduled if possible.
The Positivity Project Open House at Cairo-Durham Elementary School originally scheduled for March 19 has been postponed. Check back for updates.
