Rhinebeck Central School District : Unused Emergency Closing Days

Due to the contractual length of the teacher work year, the following dates have been designated by the Board of Education as “No School” days IF no more emergency closing days are needed for the rest of the current school year:
Friday, March 18                  
Monday, March 28                     
Friday, April 22                
Friday, April 29  (Superintendents Conference Day for instructional staff; no school for students; replaces the June 23 & 24 half-day Superintendents Conference Days schedule)

In the event that we have to use additional emergency closing days between now and the end of the school year, the dates listed above will revert to regular school days in the following order:

  1. Friday, March 18                  
  2. Monday, March 28                    
  3. Friday, April 22
  4. Friday, April 29 (returning to the June 23 & 24 half-day Superintendents Conference Days schedule)
For example, if we experience an emergency closing within the next several weeks, Friday, March 18 would again become a regular day of school for students and staff.  If we experience a second emergency closing, Monday, March 28 would again become a regular day of school for students and staff. In the event of a third emergency closing day, Friday, April 22 would again become a regular day of school for students and staff.  In the event of a fourth emergency closing day, Friday, April 29 would again become a regular day of school for students and staff, and instructional staff would report for the scheduled June 23 & 24 half-day Superintendents Conference Days.
Given the uncertainty of weather and related travel conditions, especially at this time of year, we strongly suggest not committing to plans that can’t be changed for the “give back” emergency closing dates above, should we have to reschedule school on those days due to a need for emergency closing days through the rest of the current school year.
