Inclement Weather Procedures for CHS Morning Votec/CTE Students

As winter weather approaches please be reminded of the attendance procedure for Chatham Votec/CTE students in the event that school is delayed.

If there is a one-hour delay at Chatham, and the Questar III Votec/CTE program in Hudson is open, Chatham buses will transport our students to Questar III.

If there is a two-hour delay at Chatham, our buses will not transport morning Votec/CTE students to Questar III. The morning Votec/CTE students should report to CHS and begin their day at 5th period, which is 12:05 p.m. on the adjusted bell schedule for a two-hour delay.

If there is a 3-hour delay at Chatham, our buses will not transport morning Votec/CTE students to Questar III. Those students would begin their day at 5th period, which is 12:38 on the adjusted bell schedule for a three-hour delay.

Students are always welcome to come to school with the regular morning buses if needed and spend the time prior to the start of their schedule in the high school library

In the event of any of the above delays, we will transport afternoon Votec/CTE students to Questar III.

State Bans Cell Phones in Testing Rooms
In 2012, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) amended its policy on cell phones in testing centers during the administration of NYS assessments. Under the amended policy, students are prohibited from bringing cell phones and certain other electronic devices into rooms where a New York State assessment is being administered. Test proctors have the right to collect and hold cell phones and other devices for the duration of a state exam, and students who refuse to relinquish prohibited electronic devices will not be permitted to take the state exam.
