First and foremost, congratulations to the members of the Fabius-Pompey Central School District graduating Class of 2020! Although the year ended in an unexpected manner, the school and community have worked together to create some unique senior year memories. Disappointment from not being able to fully participate in many of the time-honored traditions which define the rite of passage from high school to adulthood is understandable. On the other hand, the effort put forth to salvage the end of the year activities should reinforce that this community and school system are vested in its graduates. The names of this year’s graduates appear on the front page of this newsletter along with plans for the upcoming year.

After a postponement by Executive Order, school budget votes and Board member elections across the State were held on June 9. The vote was by paper ballot only. As the ballots were counted, the process was overseen for accuracy by a representative from the accounting firm D’Arcangelo & Co., LLP. It was also live streamed. Participation in the budget vote and Board of Education member elections was almost three times higher than participation in recent years with the budget passing by 80 percent. Considering the number of community members that voted, there have been inquiries as to the feasibility of voting in this manner in the future. The District does not have local authority over voting rules or the dates of a vote. These rules are dictated by State government.

Since the second week of March, communities across the country have been turned upside down trying to address the COVID-19 global pandemic. Throughout history, flexibility and adaptability have been characteristics that have seen this nation through challenging times. Those characteristics are still alive and well as evidenced by our local reaction this health emergency. From the moment we knew students would be taught remotely parents and teachers rolled up their sleeves and went right to work. Everyone adjusted and evolved with the changing circumstances and changing rules. The District’s support staff and cafeteria staff made meals and coordinated the delivery and pickup of school supplies. And during this time, the transportation staff has made sure that materials and meals were delivered to the correct people. This was accomplished under the dedicated leadership of the building principals and business administrator who have worked countless hours to ensure the needs of the students were met. I am truly appreciative of the district-wide effort that has put the well-being and education of the students’ front and center of every decision.

Everyone is anxious to know how school will look in September. The State has indicated that the rules for gatherings, particularly for school and school events, will be decided at the State level. This will either happen through Executive Order or, less likely, legislative action. At the district level there will be a number of contingency plans in place waiting for the guidance from Albany. We are eager to put plans in place and to share that information with you as soon as possible.

Have a great summer.
