April 17 message from Supt. Spring

Dear Cohoes Families,

Thank you for everything you are doing to help your child learn and to keep up with their assignments! Words cannot express my gratitude for your support as we continue to work together to provide our students with the resources they need to keep learning during the closure. As you may already be aware, Governor Cuomo announced that he is extending “New York State on PAUSE” through May 15 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

As part of this order, schools throughout the state will remain closed through May 15. The governor could extend the closure again if he feels it is necessary to contain the virus.

I also wanted to provide information from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) on the cancellation of the June 2020 exams and temporary changes to requirements for students to earn high school diplomas for graduation. Please see our rundown of what students and parents need to know.

I am proud that we have:

While I understand this is a very challenging time, I truly believe we will emerge from this public health crisis a stronger and more connected community. We will get through this together; our compassion for one another and commitment to our students – your children – serve as a reminder as to why Cohoes is such a special place.

With Tiger Pride,

Jennifer Spring


Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
