Calendar update School Calendar Update
Dear Parent/Guardian:

As of today, the Board approved school calendar has a spring break scheduled to take place April 10th through April 17th, with students returning to school on Tuesday, April 18th. The same approved calendar includes make-up days in case snow days were needed beyond the allotted number of snow days.

Unfortunately, the District has run out of the seven (7) snow days that were allotted in the 2016-17 approved school calendar. If school is canceled for any reason, from this date forward, spring break will be shortened as follows:

- If we lose one more day, school will be in session on April 17th.

- If we lose a second day, school will be in session on April 13th

- If we lose a third day, school will be in session on April 12th

- If we lose a fourth day, school will be in session on April 11th

- If we lose a fifth day, school will be in session on April 10th

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

In Fallsburg Central School District, we believe that all children deserve an education that fosters personal growth, inspires a passion for learning, and gives them the skills they need to succeed in an ever-changing world. But we can only provide this if we partner with you in your children’s education.

That’s why I’m inviting you to take part in our annual Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) Survey, which launches Tuesday, March 7.

Proposed Capital Project
Dear School Community Member,
On Tuesday, March 14, 2017, the Fallsburg Central School District will ask voters to decide on a $15.9 million capital improvement project that addresses energy efficiency as well as health and safety renovations district-wide.
At the Junior-Senior high school and the Elementary school there will be security upgrades which will include entrance vestibules. There will be bathroom renovations and exterior site improvements including the outdoor track and the practice fields. The HVAC upgrades will continue our quest to improve student comfort and thermal efficiency.
At the Junior-Senior high school the gymnasium floor, bleachers, and windows will be replaced. The pool renovation, a centerpiece of this capital project, will include the replacement of a new tiled deck, a new pool liner and plumbing upgrades.
Ultimately, the will of the people will determine how this project moves forward and how we address our facility issues.
On behalf of the Fallsburg Central School District Board of Education, I thank you for taking the time to watch the building project video below. We look forward to hearing from you as we approach the March 14th vote. Thank you.
Dr. Ivan Katz
Superintendent of Schools
