A Message to the Entire Niskayuna Central School District Family

December 23, 2020

To the Entire Niskayuna Central School District Family,

As 2020 comes to an end, we wish you a safe, healthy, peaceful and enjoyable winter holiday recess. We are so proud of how everyone has come together to make this first part of the school year the best it can be, despite the difficulty and uncertainty. We especially want to thank our students, teachers and staff members.

We look ahead to 2021 with hope, excitement and gratitude for this special learning community of ours.

Please note that for the recess, we have scheduled the weekly pickup of meals for students for Wednesday, Dec. 30, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Niskayuna High School.

We plan to resume in-person/hybrid learning at all schools on Monday, Jan. 4. There will not be general COVID-related announcements over the break. If there are any updates that we need to share, these would likely come out the weekend of Jan. 2-3.

All the best,

The Niskayuna Central School District Team
