Dear Valley Stream District 30 Families and School Community:
As communicated in my last letter to the community, the closing of schools is based on a number of factors. Many schools were closed in Suffolk County due to the potential amount of snowfall. Very few schools were closed in Nassau County due to lower predicted snowfall. We will continue to monitor the potential for two Nor’easters predicted to arrive before the scheduled spring break. If it is necessary to close more than one day before spring break, makeup days will be scheduled during that time period.
As a reminder, Wednesday, March 14th is a half day of school due to parent-teacher conferences.
Please note that March 14th is also deemed to be a National Student Walkout Day. In the interest of promoting safety, our students will not be walking out and will be involved with indoor developmentally-appropriate curricular activities.
