District (grades Pre-K-12) to go fully remote Dec. 21-23

Dec. 20, 2020

Dear Heatly families,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and got to spend some time with your kids in the snow. 

I am writing to let you know that we have made the difficult decision to go fully remote (grades Pre-K-12) Dec. 21-23 due to staffing issues. I recognize that this decision may present a challenge for our families. It continues to be my primary goal to provide in-person instruction for all students whenever possible. I also recognize that remote learning is less than ideal for many of our students and there are additional burdens on families (childcare, etc.) when school is not in session. We anticipate that we will resume in-person instruction on Monday, Jan. 4. Thank you for understanding this very difficult decision as we continue to navigate through these challenging times. 

Students are required to login at the normal time and follow their daily schedule. Attendance will need to be taken for all classes. 

K-2 students are expected to login at 7:45 a.m. Students in grades 3-12 are expected to login at 8 a.m. Pre-K students are expected to login at 8:30 a.m.

As a reminder, all families should complete the daily COVID attestation each morning (Monday-Wednesday).

In the event you are in need of meals from the school this week, please call Mrs. Legault at (518) 273-1422 ext. 9 by 10 a.m. tomorrow (Dec. 21) to be added to the delivery list. Deliveries will be distributed on Monday and Wednesday this week. 

Thank you for your continued partnership and flexibility as we navigate this school year. Please reach out if you have any questions. 

Sincerely,

Kimberly Ross 
Superintendent of Schools
