We are in the process of finalizing year-end procedures for Paul Road School.
With family and staff safety as our focus, we will be sharing information during the next two weeks on how computers will be returned and students can retrieve personal items left in classrooms before we began the extended COVID closure.
In the short term, we are asking for your help with the return of school library books. Currently, we have approximately 850 school library books checked-out to students. That is nearly 10% of our entire library collection. We are hoping you might consider dropping off any library books during the next two weeks so we can inventory them and start planning for book replacements.
There will be a large blue bin placed outside the main school entrance (Door #3) labeled "Library Book Return". The bin will be placed outside our school tomorrow (5/20) and Thursday (5/21). It will also be placed outside next week, Tuesday-Thursday (5/26-5/28). Please drop off between 7:30 and 11:30 for those days listed above.
Any books that we get returned are greatly appreciated. If there are other books that your child has from a classroom library for example, you can return those into that bin also.
Please know we really appreciate your help with this library book return project. I promise, once we finalize other year-end procedures with all GC principals and the superintendent, we will communicate them with you as quickly as possible.

These meals are free to all students whether they are in school or learning remotely from home. We encourage families to apply for Free and Reduced Price meals, if they have not done so already, as the free meals program may end at any time.
Thank you to all the Gates Chili community members who submitted questions via email and our live forum on Monday. All questions and answers have been added to our FAQ.
You may recall, in accordance with current NYSED and NYSDOH guidelines, Gates Chili cannot open fully in person. This means that we will move forward with our hybrid and remote instruction models when we begin school on Sept. 14.
Gates Chili submitted plans for an in-person, remote and a hybrid model instruction. After review of these plans, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will make a final decision on reopening schools.
