To celebrate and support young New Yorkers 5-11 getting vaccinated, Governor Hochul and New York State are hosting a sticker design contest so kids can share that they’re vaccinated.
To participate, parents and guardians can enter for their children 5-11 by posting a picture of their child’s sticker design to any social media outlet (Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook) with the following information:
Winners will be announced in the coming weeks, and at least one design per region will be available at the State’s website ny.gov/VaxForKids available for use by any New York provider, as well as distributed at a NYS mass vaccination site.
Students who have been quarantined for COVID-19 exposure can receive free school meals each weekday, beginning Monday, Sept. 27.
Meals must be ordered by 10 a.m. on the date of pickup and picked up outside the high school cafeteria between 1 and 1:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be included in each grab-and-go bag.
Meals can be ordered by calling Mr. Nevers at 315-779-2300, option 7, option 1, or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to announce that we adopted a new form of school-to-home communication at General Brown CSD called ParentSquare. This unified communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection with General Brown.
The General Brown Central School District has put together a reopening plan for the 2021-22 school year that focuses on in-person teaching and learning five days a week, while prioritizing the health and safety of students and staff.
The plan outlines the district's approach to maintaining the safe operations of the school district as it continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
Taxpayers can go online and print a copy of their 2021 tax bill. Taxpayers will also be able to check their payment status, which is updated within 24-48 hours of when the payment was made.
General Brown CSD is asking families that have not submitted the annual Free and Reduced Price Lunch (FRPL) form for this year to do so to ensure qualified students will continue to receive meals in the fall of 2021.
Currently, all students in the General Brown Central School District can receive free meals whether attending in-person or remote classes. This USDA funding will continue until the end of this school year. Although parents/guardians do not need to fill out any forms to receive this year’s free meals, once this program ends, only those who qualified and completed the FRPL form will continue to receive the benefit.
Wi-Fi is available in the student parking lot of the General Brown Jr/Sr High School.
Students and staff can join the GBLIONS_GUEST Wi-Fi with their network username and password.
