On Friday, May 15, Governor Cuomo announced that five regions would enter “Phase One” of the reopening process. These regions include both the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions, meaning Tompkins County and all neighboring counties have begun the re-opening process. See this page for more details about what Phase One looks like.
Unfortunately, all NYS schools will remain closed for the remainder of the academic year. At Ithaca High School, the last day of instruction will be Friday, June 5. While some assignments may be due after that date, teachers are being instructed to not assign any additional work after June 5.
All students will be given the option for each course to take a “pass/fail” grade for any courses they are currently taking, instead of the traditional numeric grade. See this FAQ for more information. I’ll calculate an estimated grade during the week of June 8 so that you can better make this decision. Keep an eye on your Schooltool account. That is my primary means of communicating to you about your grades!
We are still figuring out some of the further details for what the end of the year looks like. Keep an eye on this page or your email for more information.
