Canajoharie Central School District 2020-21 Proposed Reopening Plan

Recovering and Rebuilding

NOTE: If for any reason you have difficulty accessing this plan please contact the district’s communications specialist.


The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world and more importantly, the Canajoharie community.  Individuals, families and communities have suffered physically, emotionally, financially and educationally.  In March of 2020 our educational system and community was turned upside down and there was a big adjustment to everyday life.  

The 2020-21 school year will be our time to recover and rebuild.   We will work together with all of the stakeholder groups to ensure that our students are receiving the best education possible and are safe.  In addition, our faculty and staff are safe as well.  There will be no perfect plan for everyone and there will be adjustments and shifts as we progress through this unprecedented event.   What the plan looks like today might look completely different in the future.  In addition, we have to balance transportation, food service, staffing, facilities, finances, and maintenance to make the plan effective.    

This document is the plan for the Canajoharie Central School District to reopen for the 2020-21 school year.  The guidelines are driven by the New York State Education Department and the county Department of Health.
