Dear Putnam Valley Community:
The school district has been notified that a portion of Peekskill Hollow Road (at Lovers Lane) will be closed on Thursday, November 10, and is scheduled to reopen by the morning of Monday, November 14. This closure will impact our busing on Thursday, November 10 (schools are closed Friday, November 11, for Veteran’s Day). In anticipation of these busing delays everyone should be prepared for buses to arrive later than normal and some students may be picked up by a smaller school vehicle. Please encourage your child to continue to wait at their bus stop, a bus will be on its way.
On the afternoon of Thursday, November 10, high school and middle school students will be dismissed 15 minutes early to allow for extra time to complete our afternoon bus runs without impacting our elementary school dismissal. Parents of elementary students should expect some delays during the afternoon bus run.
As mentioned above, we only expect this work to impact our school transportation for the one day. In the event the work continues longer than expected, students may again experience delays on Monday morning. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Dr. Jeremy Luft
Superintendent of Schools
