Update: School is in session and all on-campus activities will resume for Friday, January 20th
This message is to inform you that school will be in session for tomorrow, Friday, January 20h. The district has completed the mechanical tie-in to the elementary well. The elementary school runs on a completely separate water system and has passed all tests as required by the Department of Environmental Protection. Water testing has been completed and has been processed by a certified lab. The Department of Environmental Protection lifted the boil water advisory this afternoon. Official DEP notification is below. Again, school will be in session for Friday, January 20th.
Update: School calendar impact
The district will be submitting January 17th and 18th as ACT 80 days to the state. The students will not have to make up those days. This is possible due to additional hours built into the schedule for just such emergencies. However, beginning with Thursday the 19th, the students will have to make up academic days. Thursday’s rescheduled day would be February 20th. Students will attend school on February the 20th, 2017.
On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, I want to personally thank the Mohawk School Community for their patience and support during this inconvenient time for families. Please know that all decisions were made with great caution and recognition of all student safety considerations. We understand the difficulties that these cancellations bring forth and appreciate the cooperation we have received from our stakeholders. We are truly lucky to have such a strong support system for the students of this community.
