MVSCD SCHOOLS CLOSED MONDAY, JAN. 21, FOR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY

Posted January 18 at 4:07pm

Minisink Valley schools will be closed on Monday, Jan. 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

On Nov. 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill in the White House Rose Garden designating a federal holiday honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to be observed on the third Monday of January. A leader of the 1950s-1960s civil rights movement, Rev. Dr. King advocated for nonviolent civil disobedience to racial segregation, and was instrumental in the movement's most momentous achievements (Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965). He was also recognized internationally with the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.

Please know that we have been aware of this matter since it occurred. The incident was immediately reported to law enforcement agencies at the time. The ensuing external and internal investigations, and collaboration between the district and law enforcement, resulted in disciplinary action for the offending student. The district legally cannot discuss any resulting student disciplinary actions, including this one, for any reason.


The district has no tolerance for hateful language or any type of conduct that endangers the physical or emotional sense of safety and security of our students and staff. Those who choose to test these boundaries will endure the consequences outlined by the district’s code of conduct, and/or those under the law.
