Hello Parents! We hope this finds all of our students and their families enjoying their summer. Here at Mechanicville Jr./Sr. High School there are so many changes taking place to grow and enhance our district. As part of our capital project, there is much work being done this summer to the 9-12 end of the building. A new cafeteria and athletic complex is being finished- the auditorium flooring has been given a makeover, and there has been extensive and what will be ongoing work in the high school classrooms, hallways, and restrooms in regard to renovation work has and will continue to be ongoing throughout the year. Improvements to the infrastructure, security, and network are a few things that have been happening around our building. Starting this 2018-19 school year, we are excited to be offering a breakfast program before the school day for all student in grades 6-12 as well as the opportunity to offer new lunch options for our students, one option which will allow students to pre-order a customized meal online! Details will follow in regard to these programs. Also starting this September we will have an amended start time where our school day will begin at 8:03am, keeping the dismissal time of 2:25pm the same. This time change was prompted by requests from many students and parents to allow for all staff to be available each day until a minimum of 2:53pm for questions, extra help, meetings, or other such need after the school day ends, all students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to meet with staff. Duration of blocks will change by 5 minutes from 78 minutes to 73 minutes per block to allow for this opportunity. This change will minimize student schedule impact, increase accessibility of staff for students, and keep our district well above the mandated time for students in the classroom. Please note that our first day of classes for students will be on Thursday, September 6th. Also note that drop off this year will occur under
