Special Board of Education Meeting

There will be a special meeting of the Board of Education on Friday, August 26th at 7:15 AM to confirm the tax rolls and authorize the tax levy. 

 

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE VILLAGE OF GREEN ISLAND

"Notice of Change in Traffic Pattern near Heatly School"

"In an effort to keep our children safe, beginning the first day of school and on all days that school is in session, Arch Street between George Street and Hudson Avenue, will be closed to all traffic EAST from 7:15am- 8:15am and 2:15pm - 3:15 pm.  It will also be closed at any time that school is dismissed early.  Traffic will be allowed traveling WEST on Arch Street.

 

It simply means that all traffic going to school will have to travel north on Hudson Avenue from Swan Street, rather than Arch Street.  We think this will improve safety and we are going to give it a trial run.  If we find it to be successful, we will take it to the Village Board and make it a local law, just like we did the restricted parking in front of school a few years ago.   Please cooperate so we can keep our kids safe. "
