ESY Updates

Thanks to everyone for getting your ESY paperwork in! The fun of planning ESY has begun and we are looking forward to another great summer session! Notebooks and dividers will be delivered to your school very soon so that you can begin preparing those to send.

IMPORTANT- This year on May 20, someone from DEC will be coming by to check data books to ensure that that they are completed and ready for the ESY staff to utilize.

If you need me to send electronic copies of any data sheets, please let me know and I will be happy to send to you.

Applications to work in our ESY program are online and were due to be completed by April 4. If you have not applied and were wanting to, please do so ASAP!!
