Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome back to the new school year at Minerva Central! I hope that your summer weeks have been enjoyable. September is quickly approaching and I am getting excited to welcome everyone back to school in a couple of weeks. I am especially excited to be serving our school, students, and community as the new Superintendent!
Classes begin for all of our K-12 students on Wednesday, September 6th at 8:00 am, with buses arriving at approximately 7:45 am. Any students arriving prior to the first bell between 7:30 am and 7:45 am need to enter through the atrium doors. They will then either go to the gym for a walking program, or if they want breakfast they will head straight to the cafeteria. Once the 7:45 am bell rings and the buses arrive students in K-6 can report to their classrooms. Students in 7-12 can get a “grab and go breakfast” and head to homeroom, or head directly to their homeroom.
Our PreK will start on Monday, September 11th; their day will begin at 11:00 am so that we are able to provide them with lunch. Students attending BOCES programs will begin classes on September 6th as well. Most bus pick-up times will be similar to last year, and on Tuesday, September 5th, bus drivers will conduct a trial bus run so you will have the opportunity to make a note of the approximate pick-up time for your child(ren). If you have transportation-related questions please contact Mr. Camara at the bus garage @ (518)251-3592. If you choose to provide your own transportation to school, please make the necessary arrangements to drop your child(ren) off at 7:45 am.
