Community Update – November 2021

Dear Delaware Academy Families and Friends,

Welcome to November – a month of gratitude.  I am thankful that we have continued to experience minimal numbers of positive COVID cases over the past several weeks, despite Delaware County’s designation as an area of high risk.  Thank you to everyone who has been diligent in your efforts to engage in safe and healthy practices to keep us in school every day.  

November twelfth (11/12) marks the end of the first quarter of the school year.  We have already had so much to celebrate and be thankful for including full participation in athletics, extra-curricular activities, Homecoming dance and parade, elementary Halloween parade, fundraisers, and other events that have brought us closer to “normal.”  

While Mr. Mackey has been a wonderful addition as our interim Principal, we don’t get to keep him.  Thus, we have started our search for a new Middle and High School Principal and need your help.  At this time, we are asking for input from all members of our DA Family.  Please consider responding to our DA Principal Search Survey by clicking HERE.  The link can also be found on our website at www.delhischools.org.  We will keep everyone posted on the search process including additional ways for our community to participate.  

Some important dates to note:

Once Upon A Mattress Musical – November 5-7, 2021 at DA High School Auditorium
Veteran’s Day Program – November 10, 2021 for our local veterans and guests
•Board of Education Meeting – November 15, 2021 at 6:00pm in the HS Library
Thanksgiving Break – No School on Wednesday (11/24) – Sunday (11/28)

What to watch for:

Winter Athletics – The NYS Education Department has issued strict guidelines for high-risk, indoor sports for the winter season.  Masks continue to be required for all athletes, other participants and spectators regardless of vaccination status.  While we are not limiting numbers of guests per player, we must require masks and social distancing between family units in the seating areas.  Thank you in advance for supporting our Bulldogs and following these protocols so that together, we may enjoy a full season.  
Vaccines continue to be available through DASH for any child, aged twelve and above by calling (607) 746-7454.  As soon as authorized, DASH will also have vaccines available for students aged five (5) and above.  

Thank you again for your efforts in keeping Delaware Academy moving forward.  Go Bulldogs!
