In collaboration with students, families, and the community, Meachem will provide a safe and supportive learning environment that is committed to growing the whole student.

Please call us at (315) 435-4610 and ask to speak with a Social Worker for more information and assistance.

Dear Meachem Families,
 
We are quickly approaching the halfway point of the 2020-21 school year! In August, you were asked to make a selection between hybrid in-person learning and 100% remote instruction for the first semester of the school year, ending January 29, 2021.  I’m writing to offer the opportunity to request a change to your child’s instructional model starting February 1st.
 
If you are interested in changing your child’s instructional model (from 100% remote to hybrid in-person, or from hybrid in-person to 100% remote) we need you to complete the Parent COVID Schedule Choice form. Here is the link to do so,
https://bit.ly/scsdschoolmodel .  You can also access this form on the SCSD homepage and on our school page.  The deadline for making this choice is December 22nd. Please note, if you do not respond, your child will remain in his or her current model of instruction.
 
As explained by the Superintendent, we are still required to follow the current New York State COVID-19 guidelines for schools. This may mean we cannot guarantee that every request to make a change from 100% remote to hybrid in-person instruction can be honored, but we will make every effort to do so. The guidelines we must continue to follow include:

 
  • students seated six feet apart; which limits the number of students per room
  • fixed number of staff and classrooms
  • class size limits for both in-person and remote
 
The health, safety, and education of our students and staff are the top priorities at (School Name). We appreciate your support in making sure your child attends school—either in person or online—each and every day. Working together, we will continue to make this school year a meaningful one.
 
We look forward to hearing from you if you want to make a change to your child’s current instructional model for the second semester.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Katie Moulton
Principal
