Letter from the Superintendent - Returning to School
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), Faculty and Staff:
I am heartened to note that last week marked the first official “reopening” within New York State under the governor’s Phase 1 rules. Even though schools are in the last phase, Phase 4, we cannot get to that phase without the other three phases happening first and we are now (finally) making progress in that regard. Another reason I find this news encouraging is that as things are reopened, families will start to have some “out of the house” opportunities as they are desperately needed. I have included several specific Afton updates below.  Read More

The "Students" tab above now has additional resources for remote learning. This page will continue to be updated as teachers expand resources.  If your child is utilizing a school device and connecting to the Internet via cellular data (a hot spot), data charges may apply. Please contact your carrier to confirm your data plan.

Afton Central School District Annual Meeting will be June 9, 2020 per Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.26

The Annual Meeting is for the purpose of voting on the school budget, a capital project proposition, school bus proposition and school board member election.  The vote may not be held in person.  Absentee ballots will be used for voting.  The reason for voting by absentee ballot is temporary illness.  The potential for contraction of the COVID-19 virus shall be deemed temporary illness.  

The school will be attempting to send to qualified voters of the District an absentee ballot together with a postage-paid return envelope and instructions for completing the same.  If for some reason you do not receive a ballot in the mail by May 27 and would like to vote, please contact the Clerk. Additional absentee ballots may be requested by any other qualified voter by contacting the District Clerk by email at [email protected] or by calling 607-639-8229. These requests must be made by Friday, May 29, for the absentee ballot to be mailed to you.

If you are a qualified voter of the District:
(1) a citizen of the United States of America, (2) eighteen years of age or older, and (3) a resident within the School District for a period of thirty (30) days preceding the annual vote and election and you choose to vote, absentee ballots should be returned in the self-addressed stamped envelope that will be provided to you.  In order to be counted, all absentee voters’ ballots must be received in the Afton Central School Office of the District Clerk by 5:00 p.m. on the day of the vote, June 9, 2020.

The Budget Hearing will be held remotely on Monday, June 1, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.  No in-person participation is permitted.  The Budget Hearing will be streamed live on the Afton Central School District Website at
