By Dr. Robert L. Chakar, Jr., Superintendent

Based on Governor Cuomo’s recent announcement regarding high-risk athletics, and after receiving guidance from multiple County Departments of Health, the Delaware League has decided to cancel the Fall and Winter athletic seasons. The Delaware League, which consists of four counties, 11 school districts, and four departments of health, considered all options based on the requirements of the guidance and current COVID-19 data and metrics. The Delaware League will concentrate our efforts on the Spring sport season for our student athletes.

I would like to congratulate our elementary Students of the Month:  Colton Weaver, Lykah DePierro, Skyler Tosi, Matthew Liddle and Faith Sass.  Keep up all the great work and effort.

The third quarter began on February 1.  I am pleased to report that nearly 75% of our 5-12 students were named to the Superintendent’s List, High Honor, or Honor Roll for the second quarter.  They all received certificates and a coupon for free ice cream in the school cafeteria.  Again, I would like to congratulate these students.

CROP has been able to run an in-person program three days a week.  Students receive a snack, work on homework, enjoy some recess time and work on a short, varied project each day. They have also been able to connect with Hanford Mills Museum and Cornell Cooperative Extension via Zoom for certain activities.

I would like to remind parents that the temperatures are getting colder
