June 12 will be B-P’s last day of school

The last day of the 2019-20 school year for Broadalbin-Perth students and 10-month instructional staff will be Friday, June 12.

Superintendent of Schools Stephen Tomlinson explained that, by June 12, B-P will have met the state requirement of providing 180 days of instruction for the year. B-P will reach the 180th day sooner than originally scheduled because students and teachers participated in remote learning during spring break and planned superintendent conference days. The district will also hold remote instruction on Friday, May 22, which was a planned vacation day.

Teachers and building leaders are preparing to communicate with parents regarding additional information related to the formal end of the school year.

Although Friday, May 22 will be an instructional day, Monday, May 25 will not as Broadalbin-Perth observes Memorial Day, which is a federal holiday. Parents and students can expect to see assignments for the week posted by Tuesday morning.

Current executive orders issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo prohibit the district from offering face-to-face summer learning opportunities this year, including summer school and driver’s education. District leaders will continue to follow executive orders and state guidance regarding all aspect of school operations.
