Brewster Announces Makeup Days

Editor's note: The following comes from Brewster's Interim Superintendent Dr. Timothy Conway.


Dear Parents and Guardians of Brewster School District Students,

The extreme weather that we have experienced this winter has necessitated many school districts in our area to close more frequently than would typically be the case in other years. I am sure that it comes as no surprise that this year the Brewster Central School District has exceeded the number of snow days that were built into the school calendar and, therefore, we need to have school in session on days that originally were planned as days off. In accordance with the plan included in our 2013/14 school calendar. which was distributed at the beginning of this school year, school will now be in session on the following dates:  April 14, April 15, April 21 and May 23. If we need to close school additional days due to inclement weather, we will have school in session on additional days in April. 

We hope that you and your families are safe during this patch of rough weather and remember, spring is just around the corner...we hope!!!

Regards,

Tim Conway

Mr. Conway. In the future can you and the members of the BOE please consider a one or 2 day February break? The kids just got back from a 2 week Christmas break, several snow days and mid-term week. My high school student said they have not even really started on their 3 term work and they have another break. I have heard it said that "teachers have fought for this break and will not give it up contractually". I would hope that all people involved would work to do what is best for the students of BCSD.

That's my point this vacation time is useless the weather is bad and they just got back from Christmas break. I grew up upstate and we had longer Christmas and spring break not this one.
