Celebrating Snow Days

Celebrating Snow Days
Posted on 12/16/2020
‘Twas the night before our first potential snowstorm of the season and the Fort Ann community was left wondering...will we be celebrating a snow day or engaging in remote learning?
The NYS Education Department recently established a pilot program that enables school districts to use remote instruction on what would otherwise be a day of school closure due to a snow emergency. We feel that this is a great option for school districts, as it provides an opportunity for educational flexibility.
...But we also feel that our students and staff have been working incredibly hard this year and we would hate to take away the magic of waking up to the gift of a much-needed day of play and rest.
This winter, the Fort Ann Central School District has made the decision to opt for traditional snow days, especially during this very untraditional school year.
We want children of all ages (staff included) to continue the pre-snow day rituals of spoons underneath the pillows and pajamas turned inside out, in the hopes of a snow day.
Just remember that our faculty and staff will miss you on these days off, so please share photos with us so we can see how you creatively embrace an #FASnowDay.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the district directly.
