Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

New York State has designated Thursday, April 23 as “Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” Unfortunately, April 23rd is also one of three consecutive days of the New York State Assessment in Mathematics for all students in grades 3-8. Although North Colonie has a long tradition of participating in the “Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” we believe it is imperative for all of our students to be in school in order to ensure the most positive, consistent testing environment for all. As such, we will not be supporting this activity district-wide, K-12, this year. »READ MORE

Musical instruments & insurance

Every year children bring many personally-owned or rented instruments into our schools, sometimes leaving them overnight in our classrooms. The North Colonie Central School District has taken reasonable steps to prevent the theft of student property. However, the district is not responsible for theft, loss or damage to students’ personal property on the premises. Additionally, parents are encouraged to list valuable items like musical instruments on their homeowners’ or renters’ insurance policy.
