NEWBURGH – The Newburgh Enlarged City School District is preparing for an announcement from Governor Cuomo that could once again affect the way students receive education, according to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Roberto Padilla.

In a Wednesday morning email sent to faculty and staff of the district, Padilla’s communications team said in part, “At some point today, we anticipate an announcement from Governor Cuomo that may impact our schools. We have tried our best to manage the ever-changing information and get it to the stakeholders directly impacted in a timely manner. We know how difficult the constant changes have been over the last few months. We praise you and thank you for continuing to #ShoulderUp.”
The superintendent also addressed plans for future education, saying, “My team and I have prepared contingency plans so we can pivot from in-person student instruction at a moment’s notice if needed. Over the next twenty-four hours, we will publicly announce our new plans based on the information released today by the Department of Health and Governor’s Office.”
