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: 



Last Day for Students

The 2019-2020 School Calendar has been adjusted to reflect the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. As per Governor Cuomo’s executive order, school was in session for an extra six days during spring break and the Friday before Memorial Day. As a result, school is ending earlier than previously scheduled in compliance with required student instructional days and collective bargaining agreements. The last day for students is Wednesday, June 17; the last day for teacher aides and student behavioral assistants is Thursday, June 18 and the last day for teachers is Friday, June 19.
