Kindergarten registration in the Cazenovia Central School District is scheduled for Monday, March 22 through Thursday, March 25 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (no appointment is necessary).  There will also be a limited number of evening appointments available on Wednesday, March 24 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. by appointment only (first come, first serve basis) for those parents who cannot make it during the regular daytime registration hours.  Wednesday evening appointments may be made by calling/emailing Mrs. Richer in the Burton Street Office at (315) 655-1325 or New York State mandated screening will be scheduled during registration.

Certified immunization records to-date are also required at registration.

For students whose names appear on the school census, the necessary forms will be mailed out the last week of February/first week of March.  Parents who have not received forms and have an eligible child are asked to contact Mrs. Richer as soon as possible.

Any parent who has a child eligible to attend kindergarten and is not planning to enter the child in kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year is also asked to contact Mrs. Richer.

COVID-19 Data Dashboard and Letter from Mr. Reilly

Written by on . Posted in *District News, ES News, Featured Posts, HS News, MS News

Dear Cazenovia Families and Staff,

Click on the image above to view the C.C.S.D. COVID-19 Data Dashboard

In an effort to provide as much information as possible regarding the District’s COVID-19 situation, we have created a data dashboard that will allow users to track daily changes to the metrics that are used in the decision making process of the state, county, and district. Please note that the listing of “students and/or staff absent or leaving school early due to experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19” includes just those individuals identified on that day and not a cumulative number (this is consistent with the daily data the District must report to NYS). 

In addition to the data that appears on the dashboard, another factor that is taken into consideration when making decisions regarding transitioning to remote learning includes the district’s ability to staff classrooms, buses, and other essential areas with qualified individuals. This factor has driven other districts to move to remote learning and could force our hand as well. Lastly, while the protocols in place for health and safety of our school community have been effective in creating a safe environment, we must remember and attend to the mental health of our school community as well. The unsettling nature of frequent transitions between in-person and remote instruction coupled with the increased burden placed on students and teachers in these times may play a role in the deciding whether or not to transition to remote learning and for what duration. 

I hope you find this tool useful in understanding both the extent of the District’s COVID-19 situation and the factors that are weighed in making decisions about the mode of instruction.

Message from Mr. Reilly; Important Information for Dec-11 Half Day

Written by on . Posted in *District News, ES News, Featured Posts, HS News, MS News

December 2, 2020

Good afternoon,

We are now more than one quarter of the way through the school year! And while we have experienced some disruptions due to COVID, students have enjoyed an extraordinary amount of high-quality instruction.  I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being great partners in education! Students, teachers, and parents are engaged in a remarkable challenge. Each day is a new milestone and a testament to hard work and cooperation. Thank you!

I write today to alert families to an update on our scheduled December 11th half-day. Similar to our two previous half-days, we plan to make the scheduled half-day on Friday, December 11th a remote learning morning for students in grades 5-12. The insights we gleaned from our previous experience were essential in helping us to better prepare for when we have had to transition students and teachers to the remote learning environment. Our K-4 students will report to Burton St. where they will experience a remote learning environment in the classrooms with the support and guidance of their teachers. More information about schedules for that morning will be forthcoming early next week from your child’s principal.

Thank you again for your cooperation and please continue to emphasize with your children the health and safety measures that we know to be effective: good hand-hygiene, social distancing, and mask wearing.


Matt Reilly

Cazenovia, Superintendent of Schools
