** COVID-19 Notice – 4/8/2020
This is an important calendar update for our Bolivar-Richburg School District families. Under the NYS executive order to close school due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are required to use all of our remaining emergency closing days, and Spring Break. This means that now April 10-17 will be converted to “make-up days”. Next week we will continue with our meal deliveries Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and our instructional staff will continue to engage our students. Please remain safe and healthy, and we hope to see you all back in school soon.

The Bolivar-Richburg School District will be providing home instruction for several more weeks. All schools in New York State are closed at least through April 29.
Teachers and staff are working diligently to keep our students connected and learning. All students grade 6 through 12 have been placed in a Teams class through Office 365. This is an app they can access on almost any device. There, teachers will post assignments and notify students of ways to connect to online classes.
If you or your student has not yet looked at the new Teams, please do so. You will find a Team for each of your classes at Bolivar-Richburg. If you have any questions, please email your teacher for assistance.
For those students with no internet access, new student work packets will be delivered in the coming weeks. Please look for more information about this to be posted in the future.

** COVID-19 Notice – 3/15/2020
As recommended recently by the Allegany and Cattaraugus Health Departments, all school districts, including Bolivar-Richburg CSD – will be closed to students effective Wednesday March 18, 2020 through Sunday, April 12, 2020, with instruction occurring through home-based curriculum. This closure also applies to all district students who normally attend classes at CA Boces campuses. While there are still no confirmed cases in our region at the time of this communication, the action is ordered out of caution, as cases in neighboring counties continue to rise. The main purpose of the order is to slow the potential spread of disease among students and the community.
Here are some important pieces to consider as we head into our planned closures:
- Our district and all programs will be closed to students on Monday, March 16, all staff should report. This closure will allow our instructional team and other staff members to train and finalize educational plans for students.
- Students should report for a regularly scheduled day on Tuesday, March 17. On this day, they will receive instruction for study, tools, and supplies for the duration of the closure. Students who attend a CTE program at CA Boces center will also receive instruction for their respective program. Parents will receive a copy of all instructions for their students.
- As a district, we do have a food plan in place to provide meals to those students who require it during the closure. In addition, students with disabilities who receive specialized services will continue to receive the educational support needed to be successful. You will be receiving specific communication on these areas by Tuesday.
We appreciate your support during this challenging time. We continue to be proactive in keeping our students, staff and communities safe.
