  • The Road to Returning: Community Update on the Reopening of Schools

    October 26, 2020

    Moving forward, both the Board of Education and Superintendent Urbina-Medina will ensure that frequent communication are shared to keep parents and our community apprised of the progress made towards reopening our buildings for in-person learning. At minimum, two to three brief updates will be provided each week, with additional messages released whenever there is new information available. This information will be shared on our website and parents will receive alerts from the schools’ automated messaging system. They will also be linked to our District Facebook page.

  • Delay in Return to In-Person Instruction

    October 22, 2020

    At last night’s Board of Education meeting, it was announced that the District will be unable to provide in-person learning to our hybrid students starting on October 26th as planned. We understand that this news is devastating to our many students and families who were counting on returning to school next week. We know that this last-minute change is a hardship for our families, and we are truly sorry that we are unable to move forward as planned.

    New Paltz Central School District is pleased to announce that due to recent federal decisions, the district is able to temporarily provide school meals FREE OF CHARGE to ALL New Paltz students, regardless of eligibility or income. This provision will be available through June 30th, 2021.


    Breakfast and lunch meals are available for delivery every school day for every student in the District. No meals are delivered on weekends or school holidays. Once the hybrid schedule begins, meals will be delivered to the student’s classroom on the days they attend, or, they can continue to be delivered to the household for students who are learning from home. If you would like to receive free breakfast and lunch delivered to your household, click on this link and complete the form https://forms.gle/Qfq69XcMWLHvDVYLA or simply call the New Paltz Central School Food Service Office at 845-256-4050.


    Although meals are free for all students through the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, the District still requires that households complete an Application for Free and Reduced School Meals (found in your new Back-to-School packet and in the Parent Portal) and return it as soon as possible. The application is simple, brief, and strictly confidential. If you feel your household qualifies or your financial circumstances change, the application can be completed at any time of the school year. Print and mail the completed application to NPCSD at 196 Main Street, New Paltz, NY 12561 or email it to the Food Services Department at foodservices@newpaltz.k12.ny.us.


    Learn more about income eligibility guidelines, obtain a copy of the application, and view our FAQ here: https://www.newpaltz.k12.ny.us/page/93


    The District will provide updates to the continued funding of the Free Meal program as new details and information become available.
