Important Letter to Parents From Mr. Crook, Superintendent
Good afternoon,

As you may have seen or heard, the Steuben County Public Health Department late yesterday afternoon strongly urged organizations and school districts that have planned “non-essential” mass gatherings in the coming weeks to postpone. Under this strong recommendation, the Canisteo-Greenwood Central School District will be postponing the following planned events immediately until after Spring Break (April 14):

College Night – Monday, March 16th
Elementary Musical – Willy Wonka – March 19th, 20th, and 21st
7-12 Spring Concert – March 31st
Academic All-Stars
Soph Hop – March 28th
All field trips
All out of district professional development for staff travelling to potential “hot spots”
Athletic contests – to be determined
We want to assure you that we understand that this measure is causing a disruption to our normal operations, but our first responsibility is to safeguard the health and wellness of our students and community. We will continue to follow the guidance of the medical professionals at the local, state, and federal health departments. Currently, there are no recommendations to close schools, but we are monitoring that closely. We will continue to update you with any necessary information as this is a very fluid situation.

As we continue monitoring, please practice everyday health habits as one of our lines of defense. Regularly wash hands for at least 20 seconds, don’t touch your face with unwashed hands where viruses can enter through the nose, mouth, eyes, disinfect touch surfaces often, STAY HOME when sick and avoid others who are sick.

All the best,
Thomas J. Crook
