Six East Ramapo Central School District schools are among the 518 schools nationwide to earn a spot on the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s 2020 list of America’s Healthiest Schools. They are the also the ONLY schools from New York State to have received this recognition.
Dear East Ramapo Community, With guidance from the Office of the Governor as recent as this morning it has been determined that all schools in the district will extend remote learning to the next two weeks. Please know that it remains a district wide expectation that all students will be provided the academic and social-emotional support essential to their continued development. We appreciate your partnership and will keep you up-to-date as information becomes available. Sincerely, Dr. Ray Giamartino Interim Superintendent of Schools
The East Ramapo family is mourning the tragic loss of one of our own. Ramapo High School Physical Education Teacher Kevin Feeney made an enormous impact on our students, staff and our entire community. He was a great and respected coach and mentor, always supporting his student-athletes with energy, kindness and strength. Please join us in sending prayers and condolences to the Feeney family during this most difficult time.
The East Ramapo Central School District Transportation Department is currently evaluating route information for all public and non-public students in accordance with state requirements and health and safety guidelines. Our busing contractors are currently experiencing a staffing shortage that will result in service related issues. We anticipate routes to be affected and encourage families to stay-up-to date by reviewing announcements posted on our website ercsd.org/transportation.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, each student in the East Ramapo Central School District will be issued a Chromebook (laptop computer) for use during at-home/distance learning, as well as in-person instruction. Manufacturers are currently experiencing a nationwide shortage. ERCSD wants to ensure that every home without a device has access to appropriate technology. To achieve this, the District will provide ONE Chromebook to each household until we can supply individual devices.
