Letter from the Superintendent

Scott Taylor

June 26, 2020

Dear NCSD Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather and staying healthy!

As the school year comes to a close, I wanted to again THANK you for your continued partnership and collaboration.  This has been an unprecedented school year and we could not have done it without you!

I would also like to THANK you for your support of the school district budget that passed last week. 

Our school meal delivery will end on Friday, June 26, 2020, but please know that we are fortunate to have the Eden/North Collins Food Pantry (2059 Franklin St, North Collins, NY 14111, 716-374-5683); The Well (10489 Main St., North Collins, NY 14111, 716-912-4118) and Gowanda School District (Summer Meal Program) as viable summer meal options for those in need. 

The Capital Project work has continued throughout and will be in full swing at the start of next week.  Starting July 1, 2020, the Elementary, Special Education, Jr.-Sr. High School, Business and District Offices will be located at the Jr.-Sr. High School and will have limited access.  The Elementary School campus will be temporarily closed due to the work that will occur there throughout the summer.  In order to assure that we create a safe environment for all, listed below are expectations that we will have for our visitors.  As we continue to move forward, and more information becomes available, we will be adjusting these protocols.

North Collins CSD will continue to follow New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive orders and guidance. In addition, the district will follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Erie County Department of Health and New York State Health Department. 

Lastly, as a District we will continue to meet and discuss our options regarding the reopening of schools for the Fall of 2020. We have District committees currently meeting to discuss the latest information available as well as planning for various options for reopening schools.  Once we receive NYS Education Department guidelines we will develop our plans and keep you posted. 

I hope your family is able to enjoy the summer months ahead! Please stay safe and I’ll see you along the way.
