Board of Education Regular Meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 22nd Mackenzie Elementary at 7:00 p.m.
Welcome to Eldred Central School District
Home of the Yellowjackets! Eldred Junior-Senior High School is the place to be! Situated in the southern part of Sullivan County, New York, Eldred Junior-Senior High School offers a unique, individualized school experience. Eldred is an all-regents high school, whose students are among the top performing in the nation. After school, Eldred is bustling with athletics, clubs, and performing arts groups. George Ross Mackenzie Elementary School was built in 1995 on land belonging to George Ross Mackenzie. Our elementary school is located in the southern part of rural Sullivan County, New York near the Delaware River. There are 360 students in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade.
Due to the number of snow days taken this year, the following days that were to be spring break days will now be days of student attendance; Monday April 2, Monday March 26, Tuesday March 27 and Wednesday March 28. If we use more snow days, they will be taken from the 29th and 30th of March. This has been a very unusual and intense winter. Let's hope that spring is around the corner.
Dear Eldred School Community, These are difficult times for the Eldred School community. Many in our community have no power and no heat. Our schools are without power thus we cannot open. Since we are out of snow days we will begin using spring break days as days of school, as indicated. Monday April 2nd will be a day of school. If we are closed on Tuesday, we will be in school on March 26th then March 27th, 28th and Thursday March 29th. A loss of a school day not made up cost about $20,000.00. We simply cannot afford to lose any state aid. I have asked the state education department to forgive us these days but the preliminary response was that we should use our vacation days first. I will keep trying and keep you informed. I hope that all is well with you and your family and I look forward to our opening school as soon as possible.
As you are likely aware, the Eldred school district has formed a Task Force to explore our efforts to combat bullying and to make recommendations to the Board of Education for improvement if needed. One recommendation from the Task Force was to add a “Bully Button” to the web page for anyone to report incidents of bullying. It is imperative that this report process be used appropriately so we can address the needs of our students. Please include your name on the form so that our investigation can be as complete as possible. I want to thank our District Task Force for their efforts in this critical area.
