Breakfast and Lunch Meals - Free for all Students until December 2020 (or until funds are depleted)
Note: All families are encouraged to complete a free or reduced meal cost application!
The Abbey Group is thrilled to announce that the USDA and New York State Child Nutrition Program recently released the extension of their free meal program for the remainder of 2020. This allows us to serve completely free and nutritious meals to all children, regardless of their situation, until the end of the year.
We know that families were and continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we enter into the 2020-2021 school year, The Abbey Group recognizes that our children are learning in completely new environments. With the stress of adapting to long-term remote learning, hybrid learning model and various other changes to our normal routine, this move by USDA and New York State allows us to help remove one key stressor: feeding our children. Whether that be in the cafeteria, the classroom, or at home, The Abbey Group deeply values the importance of a nutritious and filling meal. Quality nutrition has the power to help kids stay focused and do their best learning under both ordinary and extraordinary circumstances.
The program is completely free to all children under the age of 18 with no application required. (Again, if you could complete an application it would ensure you keep receiving free meals after the December deadline.) Parents and guardians can also choose to pick up meals for their children at Chateaugay Central School.
Fall Sports Season
CCS Athletics - Fall 2020
Statement on Section X Athletics for Fall 2020 Season:
The 24 school districts in Section X made a collective decision to move forward with an abbreviated fall sports season starting as early as September 21st.
In accordance with NYSDOH guidance (Interim COVID-19 Guidance for Sports and Recreation), the ability to participate in sports and recreation activities is determined by a combination of the risk for COVID-19 transmission (1) inherent in the sport or recreation activity itself and (2) associated with the “type of play” (e.g. individual practice vs. game). Sports and recreation activities are categorized by NYSDOH as “low” risk, “moderate” risk, and “high” risk. At any time, Section X could delay or end the season.
Per Governor Cuomo’s orders, districts are authorized to play low or moderate risk sports only at this time. This will include the sports of soccer and cross country for the Fall 2020 season. Junior varsity and modified teams will be considered one week after the varsity start up. High risk sports such as football, volleyball, and spirit cheer will be considered for a make-up season in the spring.
All athletes will be subject to comply with NYSPHAA health and safety guidelines, which are posted on the NYSPHAA website.
There is a tremendous amount of guidance surrounding the safety measures that we must undertake to have students practice and play in as safe of an environment as possible. NYSPHSAA and Section X have approved soccer as a sport season that may begin in the fall for regular practices and competitions.
Chateaugay will start Varsity Only level practices on Monday, September 21st.
Due to many logistics, the Modified level will NOT be included into the league play. After school intramural soccer is being discussed. More information will be provided soon.
If your child had a physical for the 2019/20 school year, you do not need to have an updated physical for the fall 2020 Season.
Families are responsible for transporting student-athletes to practice if the student athlete has a remote learning day.
Practice times will be set up with the coaches and communicated to teams soon. Monday, September 21 practice will begin at 2:45 pm.
Game schedules will be shared once they are completed.
Practice gear - athletes should wear their own appropriate gear and any items used should be washed and cleaned daily following every workout
Athletes are responsible for bringing their own water to practices and games.
Athletes are responsible for bringing their own masks.
More information will be provided by the Athletic Department as it becomes available to us. Specific procedures regarding spectator attendance and requirements to attend will be forthcoming. These will follow the NYSPHSAA Guidance Document.
Remember...Mask Up...Stay Safe...and Let’s Make This Great!!
Thank you, Mrs. Fowler
