This message intends to provide information related to changes in the start of school for the 2017-18 school year.
The first day of student attendance for all school buildings will be moved to Wednesday, August 23rd. ¬†We will dismiss one hour early on that day.
We will also dismiss one hour early on Thursday, August 24th and Friday, August 25th.
Teachers will report on Monday and Tuesday, August 21st and 22nd for teacher inservice days.
The Back to School ‚ÄúBackpack Night‚Äù for elementary schools will be Monday, August 21st from 4-6 pm. ¬†The Middle School Back to School Night will also be Monday, August 21st from 5-7 pm. ¬†The High School Back to School Night will be Tuesday, August 22nd from 6-8 pm.
Freshman Orientation at Geneseo High School and High School New Student and Parent Information Night both remain on Wednesday, August 16th as listed on the High School Calendar.
We do not have information yet on when we will make up this two day change, but as soon as we have those calendar changes, we will let you know.
While construction is progressing extremely well, we know that we will be making final adjustments, furniture moves, cleaning up key areas, and ensuring that everything is operational right up until our start day. ¬†Therefore, we believe that these extra two days will enable us to best ensure student safety, and we can plan for as many logistic contingencies as possible.
Know that much more information will be forthcoming related to other events, and you can look for additional information coming directly from the buildings themselves. ¬†We will also try to keep you as current as possible on the District website, Facebook page and other social media and print outlets.
Thank you for your patience, cooperation and support as we work through these final details. ¬†We wanted to give you as much information as possible and as much time as we could for you to prepare for this change in schedule. ¬†Thank you and have a wonderful Weekend.
