Important COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information & Updates

Updated May 18, 2020

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, schools in New York state, including the Mayfield Central School District, will remain closed through the end of the school year. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the extended statewide school closure on May 1. We appreciate your patience as we adjust to this new direction and will follow-up with updates as we learn more.

During this time, our district will continue to provide continuity of instruction, meals for students and childcare resources every weekday, including days originally part of the previously scheduled spring break. 

Read a message from Superintendent Harper on remote learning through June 17 and end of year celebrations.
