After the Baldwinsville Central School District’s 2009-2010 calendar went to print, the New York State Department of Education issued new dates for ALL state assessments (ELA, math, social studies and science) for the 2009-2010 school year. The new dates have affected the calendars of many school districts in the state since many had finalized their calendars for 2009-2010 when the new test dates were announced.

AM and PM kindergarten will attend school as usual.
PM kindergarten will attend in the morning, AM kindergarten will not attend.
Dismissal time for K-5 is 11:30 a.m.

AM kindergarten will attend school in the morning, PM kindergarten will not attend.
Dismissal for K-5 will be at 11:15 a.m. for a state-required sheltering drill.
Full day of school for grades 6-12.
