    Standard & Poors Global Rating

    May, 2019 – Standard & Poors Global Ratings revised the outlook rating on Eastport-South Manor Central School District’s general obligation (GO) debt from negative to stable and affirmed the rating.

    The outlook revision reflects S&P Global Ratings’ opinion of the district’s ability to stabilize reserves in fiscal years 2018 and 2019.  This stable outlook is S&P’s opinion of the fiscal 2018 surplus results and the expected fiscal 2019 surplus, which the rating service believes reflects the material steps management has taken to ensure revenue and expenditure balance.

    Returned Snow Days - May 2019

    Each year, the District is mindful of "snow days" and other emergency closings as we prepare the school calendar.  This year we have not used any emergency snow days to close the District due to inclement weather.  As a result, all ESM schools and offices will be closed on the following dates:

     

    Thursday, May 23

    Friday, May 24

    Tuesday, May 28

     

    These dates are indicated in the 2018-2019 ESM District Calendar.

    2019/2020 School Calendar

    Due to the Legislative changes enacted with the New York State Budget, Section 3-110 of the Election Law now enables an employee who is a registered voter to take off up to three hours of working time, without loss of pay, so the employee can vote at any election.  (N.Y. Elec. Law § 3-110[1]).  “The employee shall be allowed time off for voting at the beginning or end of” the employee’s shift; however, unless otherwise mutually agreed, it is the employer’s decision to designate whether the time will be given at the beginning or end of the shift.

     

    As a result, next year’s approved calendar will now need to be reviewed.  We are currently modifying the existing calendar and will post it when the process is complete.
