The Suffern Central School District Music Department is excited to share a website that they have created for the families of our district!

The website started out as a tool for our 3rd-grade students to help educate them on the instruments they can choose in 4th grade, after the cancellation of the Petting Zoo. With the collaboration of the entire Music Department, we have made a website showcasing students from 4th Grade through 12th grade who demonstrate the instruments offered in our district to SCSD students.

As the website evolved, they have come to the realization that it is much more than a tool for 3rd-grade families; it is both a resource for future instrumental students, as well as a platform to share the wealth of talented musicians in our district.

Thank you so much to our Music Department for creating this awesome Instrument Exploration website:

Please visit this website to learn about the instrument families from our students and teachers. #MountiePride #SuffernCentral

School Reopening Update - 8/7/20

Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that schools across New York State will be allowed to reopen and must work with the SED and DOH as to how that will occur. He also announced a series of next steps for districts to take between now and August 21, including posting separately their remote learning, COVID testing and contract tracing plans, in addition to holding discussions with parents and staff.  With this new information, the Suffern Central School District will take a few days to align its state-mandated reopening plans with Governor Cuomo's directives. Please watch for updates on school day scheduling, instruction, transportation and other critical district operations in the coming days as well as dates for parent and staff discussions to be held.
