CTE BOCES inclement weather information

Dear Parents of CTE BOCES Students:

In the event of a snow day this school year, we will follow our usual protocol of moving the letter day (and group) to the following day.  For all CTE BOCES students however, the snow day cancels the day (and group). This will prompt our CTE BOCES students to switch groups at QHS.  

In order for BOCES to synchronize all 31 districts for CTE instruction and maintain COVID safety protocols, our 61 students must adhere to the BOCES calendar of group days. All block 3 and block 4 classes can accommodate this shift, and SchoolTool will be updated accordingly.  

For example, if there were a snow day on Monday, Jan. 4, the CTE BOCES calendar would not be impacted, and the day is canceled for Group 1. The QHS schedule shifts so that Tuesday, Jan. 5 would still be a day of instruction for Group 1 A-day students.  However, Group 2 CTE BOCES students would attend their programs and their classes at QHS. Shifting the BOCES groups will not adversely affect class sizes, and the cycle would continue until the next unexpected school closure. We will continue to update the QHS hybrid instruction calendar for the remainder of the school year. For examples of schedules, please see below:
