Dear Community Members:
On behalf of the current and future students of the Red Hook Central School District, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the approval of our Red Hook High School Auditorium Project on December 5, 2017. The vote results were 1637 (Yes) to 615 (No). The 73 percent approval rate speaks to the value (and trust) our community places in its school system. I can assure you that we will work diligently to maintain and deepen that trust as the project develops.
I would also like to acknowledge Assemblyman Kevin Cahill's generous support of this project. The $3.5 million grant he secured for the school district was instrumental in making this a viable project. We thank him for his efforts and look forward to future collaborations.
In terms of next steps, we will be working closely with our architect to create a rigorous and inclusive design schedule. We welcome community input along the way. Please feel free to email me or attend a Board of Education meeting to share your thoughts.
I thank you again for your vote of confidence and we look forward to the first student performance!
Paul Finch, Superintendent of Schools
