No School 3/8/18

Pied Piper News

So just as I finished sending the emails for the 3 hour delay I got the message of no school tomorrow due to hazardous road conditions.

Yorktown Central School District has decided to close tomorrow, Thursday March 8th. Pied Piper will also be closed due to the hazardous road conditions.

Daycare/AM/PM/Full day sessions will all be closed tomorrow.

Everyone please enjoy the snow, try to stay warm and drive safe. Make sure to bring in snow apparel on Friday to play in the snow! We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Thank you

School Update 3/8/18

Weekly Reminders

Good Evening, We hope that you have all weathered this latest storm with heat and electricity. We know how rough and trying these last few days have been and hope it only gets better from here on out. It seems that there is 2 scenarios that could happen tomorrow.

1. 3 Hour Delay

In the case of a 3 hour delay we will try to get everyone in as soon as possible. Since the snow won’t be stopping until around 5am it is going to be impossible to open up at 7am. There is also a State of Emergency declared until 9am so it would be impossible to get there and clear the entrance in time to open earlier. Daycare will open up at 9am because our staff will have to get in and get the school ready. The AM session students will not be able to come in due to the school age children getting on the bus around 11am. Full Day students will be able to come in at 11am. PM students can come at their normal times.

2. No School

In the case of Yorktown closing tomorrow it seems it would be due to the snow and not electrical issues. We received the call from Yorktown tonight and it seems that even if Crompond doesn’t have power tomorrow and the snow is cleared they will still have school for the other schools with a 3 hour delay. Therefor, we are assuming that if he announces No School tomorrow it would be due to the road conditions. In this case we will be closing the school as well for the safety of our staff and students.

Both of these plans are contingent on the districts changing their schedules if road conditions change. They have all the resources and staff to make these decisions that we do not have.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but want our students and staff to be safe. We have a new building proposal going in front of the planning board this spring which would allow us to accommodate all students in situations with 2/3 hour delays/conference days/half days.

Due to the change in schedule Grandparents Day for Thursday will be moved to next Tuesday March 13th. We will keep you informed of any further changes to tomorrows schedule.

Thank You.

Kathy & Max

School Update 3/6/18

Weekly Reminders
We hope everyone is doing okay and getting through this difficult time in Yorktown. Pied Piper currently has power so we WILL be open this week as long as we have power. We know that YCSD has cancelled school but we will continue with our normal schedule to try to help out our wonderful families and keep a normal school schedule for the kids. If you still have no power and need something charged(phone, laptop, iPad, portable charger) please put it in a bag and give them to us and we will make sure we try to charge all items. We understand how hard these times are but having a laptop or iPad to play movies or games on can be a lifesaver for small children so please send them in. Thank You

School Age Children(Before/After School Care)- Unfortunately since there is no school we cannot take the children. We have to continue with our normal school day for the Preschool so unfortunately we cannot take anymore children. Sorry for any inconvenience.
