Extracurriculars

The District will follow all New York State Department of Health and New York State Education Department guidance.

The New York State Public High School Athletic Association has provided resources for school Districts to use when a return to athletics is permitted. That document can be found here.

All other co-curricular and extracurricular activities will be allowed if they can be conducted safely in person; otherwise, if they can be conducted virtually they will also be allowed to occur virtually only.

Childcare

  • If you are a parent or caregiver who needs child care, the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) may be able to help you find the child program you need. It may be a challenge to find child care due to COVID-19 related program closures, however the staff at OCFS are trying their best to support families to find the high-quality child care that they need.Childcare may also be available through the local YMCA and the Rotterdam Boys and Girls Club. You may find additional information about the Y programs and locations here: Childcare available through YMCA for essential workers.

    You may find additional information about the Boys and Girls Club here.

    Brightside Up (formally Capital District Child Care Coordinating Council, Inc.) will ask you about the kind of care you are looking for, the ages of your children, the hours of care you need and other specifics such as any special needs your child might have. They will be able to give you a list of providers that most closely meet your needs. Please contact Ms. Abbe Kovacik, Executive Director:
