NYS Governor Cuomo’s office recently announced that all New York State school districts are expected to continue instruction and provide meals and childcare services during what normally would have been Spring Recess.


Spring Recess this year would have taken place April 6-10.


The Webster Central School District shared the information in a message by Superintendent Carmen Gumina posted on its website.


“Also confirmed by the New York State Department of Education earlier this week, failure to provide this and other identified services will likely result in a loss of state aid,” Gumina’s statement continued. “Therefore, Webster Central School District will NOT have a Spring Recess next week as planned, April 6-10.”


WCSD states that it will continue to provide learning opportunities for students “in a variety of formats.”


That being said, the activities and experiences may vary from week to week, says Gumina.


“Activities will likely be more project-based and flexible as we prepare for increased opportunities to begin on Monday, April 13,” says Gumina.


Gumina says the district will provide iPads and Chromebooks for at-home learning opportunities for all K-5 students. Those devices will be handed out “drive-thru style” next week (Tuesday, April 7-Thursday, April 9) at each of the seven elementary schools.


More detailed information will be sent to families Thursday morning, says Gumina. Additionally, the district will continue posting updates on its “Important Information Regarding COVID-19” web page.


“Above all, we are here to support our families and your children however we can,” Gumina concludes in his message. “Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your building principals with any questions. Together, we are working through an unprecedented time in our collective history. I’m thankful for our families’ continued patience, outreach, and concern for the students whom we all love and serve.”
