Letter from the Superintendent

Scott Taylor

We are excited about the opening of the 2020-21 school year. We have and will continue to navigate through the unprecedented times together as a school community. We understand the uncertainty that many of our students, staff and families are feeling regarding the unknowns of the school year, but please know that we are here to provide support.  The health and safety of our students and staff has been and will continue to be our top priority.  I would like to THANK all of the parents, students, staff and BOE members who spent countless hours over the last 6-8 weeks meeting and discussing our reopening plans.

 We are also making outstanding progress on our Capital Project.  The majority of the work has been complete at both buildings, but due to some delays, a portion of the project will continue to be implemented throughout the school year.  We will provide updates from the Elementary School and

Jr.-Sr. High School regarding any impact as necessary.  Mr. Matt Sanders, Director of Facilities, and his staff have been truly amazing throughout the scope of the project and in the planning for the reopening of the facilities.  THANK YOU to Matt and his staff!

 The support and partnership with families and the community has been critical in the creation of our plans and for the safe return of our students and staff.  We will continue to keep you informed as the school year progresses and will always have our District website updated with relevant information.  I have also provided some links below from the CDC regarding best practices for your convenience.

 Thank you for your continued support of the North Collins Central School District. Please stay safe and I’ll see you along the way.
