BOCES 2 closed to students until further notice

Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES is closed to students and all classes and school-sanctioned events are suspended. This is due to the local state of emergency and is a precautionary measure to limit the spread of illness. Facility use is limited and no outside visitors are allowed inside. Staff access will be limited to essential employees as identified by their supervisors.

At this time, there is not a definitive date for when schools will re-open to students. BOCES 2 will be in constant communication with local health officials and other school districts. The status of the school closing will be reviewed on a weekly basis and a decision for the following week will be communicated every Friday.

Because this situation is constantly evolving, BOCES 2 encourages you to visit the resource page which will contain the most current information and updates at:  www.monroe2boces.org/CoronavirusResources.aspx
