WKTV - Following the confirmation of positive coronavirus cases among students in the Holland Patent Central School District, the superintendent of schools, Jason Evangelist, sent out a district-wide letter stating that it will be closing school buildings and suspending all extracurricular activities for the week of September 28 - October 2, 2020. 

"In consultation with the Oneida County Department of Health (DOH), we have determined that it is in the best interest of our community to keep school buildings closed and suspend extracurricular activities for one week. The DOH has advised us they are conducting an extensive investigation and more time is needed to ensure all the proper contact tracing is completed. Therefore, for the week of September 28, 2020 to October 2, 2020, all Holland Patent CSD students will be engaging in remote instruction. Transportation will not be provided to outside placements due to safety concerns. All BOCES program students and outside placement students will be engaging in remote instruction," writes Evangelist. 

This will affect low and moderate-risk fall sports programs that have opted in to play this season. 

According the NYSPHSAA, all fall sports teams must complete 10 official practices before beginning competition against other schools. 

Expect schedule changes to come.
