UPDATED OCT. 8, 2021: As of Oct. 12, 2021, only visitors/vendors will be required to fill out the Daily COVID Quesionnaire (link is external). All individuals entering a Dutchess BOCES building must still wear a mask. Staff and students have the responsibility to assess their wellness at home each day.
The Dutchess BOCES Board of Trustees is returning to virtual Board meetings due to the continuing impact of the COVID pandemic. The next meeting will be at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, October 13. In-person attendance will not be permitted.
In an effort to keep everyone safe, open houses will be held virtually rather than in-person this year. Salt Point Center and the Alternative High School open houses will be held Oct. 14. Any questions should be directed to building principals.
The Dutchess BOCES Adult Learning Institute (ALI) has won the BEST of the Hudson Valley award for “best educational programs for adults.”
Help wanted signs are everywhere. Diners, gas stations, fast food restaurants, and department stores are all looking for new employees.
Dutchess BOCES will re-open schools in September on a regular schedule, five days a week. Staff will report for a Superintendent’s Conference Day on September 8 and students begin the next day. The complete reopening plan (updated 10/8/21) can be found HERE.
