  • Desk Donation for Families

    If you are looking for a flat surface where your children can work during this health emergency, we can help.  With the purchase of new desks for T. J. Connor this year, we have excessed (through Board of Education action) previously used desks and chairs.  We have attempted to sell the desks in online auction sites and worked with agencies to arrange donations.  We do still have desks for donation to families.

     

    If you are interested in acquiring a desk and chair, please come to T. J. Connor at the back parking lot on Edson Street on Friday, March 20, 2020, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Staff will be available to help.  There will be no need for you to return the desks/chairs.

     

    When needs arise, we are working together to help you.

  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

    The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is constantly changing.  We have created an online webpage which will contain the most current information. You can access the webpage by clicking on this link

    There are a number of steps you and your children can take to reduce the spread of illness, including COVID-19, according to the State Department of Health:

     

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with at least 60% alcohol. Heavily soiled hands should be washed.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

     

    Information about the Coronavirus:

     

    • Incubation period of 14 days; symptoms usually develop within 5-7 days;
    • Virus is not airborne; you must be within six feet of someone with the virus to contract the virus.

     

    We will keep you advised of updated information.

  • Change in 2019-2020 Calendar for Sixth Graders

    For many years, our sixth-graders have attended school on the Middle/High School schedule and have been out of school during the period of the Regents exams at the end of June each year.  The New York State Education Department updated regulations relating to school attendance and recently advised all school districts with a 6-12 configuration at the Middle/High School level that sixth graders must attend school for 180 actual days.  As background, students in grades seven through 12 remain able to count the Regents exam days (where they attend school only for Regents exams if appropriate) as a part of the 180-day count.  This exception is no longer available to sixth graders.

     

    This means that our sixth-grade students will attend school as follows in June 2020:

     

                Wednesday, June 17 – full day

                Thursday, June 18 – full day

                Friday, June 19 – full day

                Monday, June 22 – full day

                Tuesday, June 23 – sixth-grade early dismissal, 10:40 a.m.

                Wednesday, June 24 – sixth-grade early dismissal, 10:40 a.m.

                Thursday, June 25 – sixth-grade early dismissal, 10:40 a.m. – last day of
                 classes for sixth graders

     

    Transportation and food services will be provided on regular schedules.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided on full days, and breakfast only will be available on early release days.

     

    We are updating our online calendar with these changes and apologize for any inconvenience that this creates for your families in 2019-2020.  All future calendars will be prepared in this fashion.

    A message from Mr. Windover, 6-12 Principal


    Hello and welcome to our school’s homepage. I hope that you view this website as a valuable tool in learning more about our school and the ways in which we strive to meet our students' needs. Be on the lookout for updates and modifications as the district as a whole continues its efforts in seeing that this is a dynamic site.

     

    Please be sure to also spend time navigating the section that is specific to the development and planning for the implementation of the recalibrated Code of Character, Conduct and Support.  You can find materials related to the Code by clicking on the district homepage, and by following the links under "Our District" and "Code of Conduct" or by clicking below:

     

    Code of Character, Conduct and Support

     

    This Code was developed in partnership with key stakeholders including parents, teachers, district and school administrators, union representatives, external service providers and community leaders.  Implementation of the recalibrated Code began in 2018-2019 and will be a continued focus in the 2019-2020 school year.  Specifically, we will look to better match restorative actions with school sanctions, as well as seek to improve upon culturally responsive practices.

     

    Regular, productive and meaningful communication between all school stakeholders is an integral component of our success. Please feel free to reach out to me either by phone, email or by stepping into the office so that we can discuss the many ways in which we can work to support our children.  Further, it is important that you have updated your email address with our school and be sure to check our Twitter feed often as updates and information are often posted to this resource.

     

    Again, thank you for visiting our school’s webpage and be sure to visit back often!
