    Work that teachers would like to share will be listed first.

    News from Mr. Bay and the School will be listed after the work from teachers.


    Good morning PCS families,

    It has been very good to see many of you over the last couple of days gathering materials for students. I know I speak for all of our school community when I let you know that we miss students tremendously already. We are doing the right thing in trying to minimize the effects of the COVID-19 virus, but we understand that this is not easy for families.

    Please remember that we have meals available at the school and they will be served daily at the cafetorium entrance, Monday through Friday, 7:30 am -10:30 am. Deliveries will also be made to your house if you need that service.

    Also, remember that you can use this e-mail for any issues including requesting meal deliveries: pcsfamilies@prattsburghcsd.org

    Hello again PCS families,

    I have just a few updates that I would like to share with all of you:

    Based on the most recent executive order from Governor Cuomo, schools have been informed that they are required to provide instruction and food over our scheduled Spring Break (April 6-10). So look for more information from our teachers, and food service will continue on the regular schedule next week.

    1. We are steadily collecting data based on the survey we sent out earlier in the week.  Thank you so much for completing the survey if you have already. If not, please do so by tomorrow, April 2. Here is the link once more: Internet Survey
    2. Encourage your child(ren) to check school e-mail as teachers will be reaching out with instructions or just to check in.

    Finally, thank you for supporting the school and your students during this unprecedented time.  We may be looking at an extended closure (beyond April 15), so it is very important to encourage students to engage in the tasks sent out by teachers.  We will be reaching out via telephone and other methods in order to support you during this time.

    Please feel free to call 522-3795 or e-mail pcsfamilies@prattsburghcsd.org with any questions or concerns.  Tell your kids we miss them!!

    Sincerely,

    Kory Bay

  • Survey for Parents, March 30, 2020

    Good afternoon PCS families,

    As this closure moves on, I have some information that I would like to share with you regarding the direction that we are headed. 

    We had a virtual faculty meeting on Friday via Zoom where I was able to share information with teachers and other school employees. We made the decision that we need to get a handle on what type of connectivity our families have.

    I created this short survey that we would like to have everyone fill out. If you do not have the capability of filling this out, someone from the school will be calling you to collect this data:

    Pleaase click on link SURVEY

    We have the capability of sending computers home to all students in grades PK-12 and are working to make that happen by the end of this week (if you don’t already have a school-issued computer).

    Thank you very much for filling out the survey and remember to call or e-mail with any questions or concerns.

    I will be in touch as we get more information!

    Sincerely,

    Kory Bay

    Updated News from NYS Education Department March, 23 2020

  • Good afternoon PCS families,

    I was just notified by the Steuben County Health Department that the latest confirmed case of COVID-19 is from the town of Prattsburgh. You will no doubt see, or have already seen, a press release with this information.

    I spoke with representatives from the Health Department and they informed me that this person has not been in Steuben County in quite some time and he/she is now in Monroe County. Based on HIPAA regulations, they could not be very specific, but said that this person has not had direct contact with anyone in Prattsburgh.

    They recommended at this time to continue to practice good hand washing, stay home and use your responsible social spacing.

    Please continue to stay safe and let us know if you need anything or have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Kory Bay

    Good afternoon PCS families,

    Just passing on the latest news as it becomes available:

    Just this morning, Governor Cuomo ordered that schools be closed until April 15th. Our teachers are working to develop plans to be prepared for an even longer closure, but that is the executive order at this point.


    Steuben County just ordered ALL schools to close down their buildings AND grounds. That means that athletic fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, etc. are now off limits to the public. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but it is an order from the county to all schools so we have no choice.
     

    Look for more updates next week!

     

    Stay safe and reach out with questions or concerns.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Kory Bay

    Hello again PCS families,

    I am reaching out with some updated guidance from the CDC and the Steuben County Health Department. They are stressing that food distribution HAS to be done with as little interaction between people as possible.

    Starting next week, we are requesting that folks who come to the school to pick up food DO NOT leave their vehicles.  Our servers will bring the food to you and will place the food in your vehicle while maintaining as close to the 6-foot social spacing recommendation as possible.  Food deliveries to homes will be left outside for you to grab once our driver leaves. Thank you very much for your understanding with these new processes…we can’t be too careful!

    SCHEDULE UPDATE FOR FOOD DISTRIBUTION – We will be open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week, and then Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY beginning next week. Families will be provided enough meals for the entire week. We now need to be open Monday this week in order to make sure everyone gets all meals for the week.
     

    We miss seeing students every day, but Prattsburgh is a super strong community and we will all get through this together.

    Please e-mail or call with any questions or concerns.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Kory Bay

    Good morning PCS families,

    We hope everyone is hanging in there! We just want to remind everyone that you can still contact us by emailing us at pcsfamilies@prattsburghcsd.org or call us at 522-3795 and we will get back to you with the information you are looking for.

    We also want to remind students to continue to check email since teachers will continue to communicate with all of you.

    We do have one change in meal deliveries. In an effort to limit time workers are together, we will be delivering Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning next week. Families will continue to get enough meals for 5 full days, but will receive only 2 deliveries per week, the cafeteria will be open only Tuesdays and Thursdays. ***see note below

    ***We will have to open Monday next week drive thru and delivery for 1 day, then go to the cafeteria schedule of Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY.

    Once again, please let us know if you have any questions or need anything.

     

    Please practice social distancing and be safe!

     

    Mr. Bay
