  • July 6th, 2020: The following is posted regarding the use of school property during this summer season and continued COVID-19 response...

    The Nyack School District recognizes the importance of the use of our athletic fields to community members during the COVID-19 crisis.  However, given the current circumstances of non-approved use by groups that have not been properly practicing social distancing, and because of damages to our fields as a result of unauthorized use, all district fields will be closed until further notice with the following exceptions:

    • High School Tennis Courts
    • High School Track for walking/jogging/running only.  Social distancing must be maintained.  All walking/jogging/running must be in the same direction as other users. 

    Use of turf fields is not permitted.  Additionally, the District will not accept facilities use requests.  Anyone in violation of these guidelines will be considered trespassing and the proper authorities will be contacted if necessary. 

     

    We appreciate your cooperation and consideration in our effort to help our community remain healthy and safe during this time.
