At this time, we continue to be proactive in our preparation and response to COVID-19 and its impact on our community. At this time we do not have a designation from New York State. If we do get designated as a yellow zone we will need to test students and staff. In order to keep students coming to school for in-person instruction, the Penn Yan Central School District must test 20% of in-person students, faculty and staff over the two-week period immediately following the announcement of a yellow zone designation.

We realize that this has been quite the year! Due to Covid-19 regulations, we can not have our traditional ski club; however, Ski Club will continue in a different way. Our third through eighth grade students will be able to purchase their products individually through our group login on Bristol’s website at our ski club rates. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from the mountain. Penn Yan Staff will not be there to supervise students. Your family will get ski club rates from Bristol Mountain, but parents/guardians will be responsible for your own child/children. The package will be similar to the traditional program with rentals and lessons sold separately. Reservations will be required for lessons and rentals. (Click the title for more information)
