    GLENS FALLS COMMON SCHOOL DISTRiCT

    Absentee Ballot Status Update

     

    Absentee ballots have been mailed to all registered voters in the district and are expecting to arrive at home beginning Wednesday, June 3.

     

    Given the extremely short turn-around time to produce the ballots, the company supplying the ballots has been inundated by multiple school districts, thus causing a delay.

     

    To ensure ballots are received by the June 9 deadline, the district encourages voters to deliver their ballots in person.  A secure mailbox has been installed outside the Main Office.

     

    If you do not receive your ballot, please contact the District Clerk, Carisa Vogel, at 518-792-3231 or cvogel@abewing.org and we will ensure that you receive a ballot.

  • Dear Sixth Grade Parents/Guardians:



    I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and safe.  As you are aware, the current Executive Order has closed school districts for the remainder of the year and precludes gatherings of larger than ten (10) people. Since a school district cannot knowingly and willingly violate New York State Law, including issued Executive Orders, we remain in a holding pattern in regards to an in-person graduation ceremony. Additionally, throughout the period of closure we have remained in close contact with the Warren County Department of Health and they cannot support an in-person graduation for the same reasons. Moreover, due to the current Executive Order, the district’s insurance provider would not offer coverage for the district in the event of injury or illness at an in-person ceremony. 

     

    In the meantime, Mrs. Lank, Mr. Armstrong and I would like to recognize our 6th grade students for all of their hard work throughout the school year and provide them with some form of closure, prior to the summer recess.

     

    On Thursday, June 11 beginning at 12:00 pm, Mrs. Lank, Mr. Armstrong, and I will be visiting every students’ house to deliver an end of the year care package, present students with their diploma and to take a picture with their cap and diploma in front of their sign.  These pictures will be incorporated into our Virtual Graduation Ceremony.  Cooley’s ice cream truck will also be on hand to provide a treat for our students.  We anticipate this to take approximately 2 hours.  Please confirm with your classroom teachers if you will be available to participate in this “End of the Year” celebration.

    On Wednesday, June 17th at 2:00 pm we will be hosting a Virtual Graduation via Google Meets.  Mr. Armstong will provide our students with a link to attend the ceremony.  Please feel free to contact Mr. Armstrong or Mrs. Lank if you would like an invite to the link.  During this virtual ceremony we will present end of the year awards, watch the 6th grade slideshow and present students with their diplomas.

     

    Again, I would like to thank you for all your support and patience throughout this period of remote learning.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact your classroom teacher and/or the main office at 518-792-3231 or by email.

     

    Sincerely,

    Brian George

    Superintendent

     

    Dear Kindergarten Parents/Guardians:

    In the meantime, Mrs. Glenn, Mrs. Pigliavento and I would like to recognize our Kindergarten students for all of their hard work throughout the school year and provide them with some form of closure prior to the summer recess.

     

    On Wednesday, June 17 beginning at 11:00 am, Mrs. Glenn, Mrs. Pigliavento, Ms. Moore and I will be visiting every students’ house to deliver an end of the year care package and to take a socially distanced picture.  Cooley’s ice cream truck will also be on hand to provide a treat for our students.

     

    We anticipate this to take approximately 2 hours.  Please confirm with your classroom teachers if you will be available to participate in this “End of the Year” celebration.

    It is our hope that between now and September the Governor’s office will lift components of the Executive Order that will then allow the district to host an in-person graduation ceremony, and we are currently making plans to have an in-person graduation ceremony in early September at which time students will receive their diplomas.

     

    Again, I would like to thank you for all your support and patience throughout this period of remote learning.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact your classroom teacher and/or the main office at 518-792-3231 or by email.
