Varsity football game rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 1:
Sept. 29, 2018 -- The Moravia varsity football team's game against Thomas Edison High School of Elmira Heights Central School District has been rescheduled for 5:15 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, at home.
From earlier: Due to an unfortunate misunderstanding, last night’s homecoming varsity football game had to be canceled. It seems the opposing team was unaware Moravia had rented lights for the special game and, despite what was listed on the game schedule, assumed the contest would be played today in daylight.
We would like to apologize to all the athletes, families and fans for not being able to provide an opportunity for the community to cheer on our varsity football team. We understand how much fans and athletes alike were looking forward to this game. We are currently ...

District moves forward with plans to hire school security officer:
Aug. 31, 2018 -- As part of Moravia Central School District’s renewed commitment to the social and emotional wellness of all students, the district plans to hire a full-time school security officer for the 2018-19 school year. The officer will be based at the middle/high school and float between that building and Millard Fillmore Elementary School.
The district originally planned to create a school resource officer (SRO) position through an agreement with the Village of Moravia, but after discussions with the village failed to produce a contract in late August, the district decided instead to hire the officer directly. The Board of Education plans to vote on the appointment at a special meeting scheduled for Sept. 4.
The job title might have changed, but the functionality ...

Asbestos found during floor tile renovations:
July 26, 2018 -- During recent room renovations, floor tiles containing asbestos were disturbed in the Moravia Middle School-High School building. Although district records indicated the asbestos in the tiles was in a “non-friable state,” Moravia opted to exercise caution by calling in an independent air quality testing company. Test results confirmed no asbestos fibers were released into the air. The district is now in the process of securing a contractor to properly abate and dispose of the remaining asbestos tiles to ensure a safe learning and working environment.
If there are any questions, please contact John Birmingham, superintendent of schools, at 315-497-2670 ext 2007.
Special Board Meeting:
The Board of Education will be holding a special meeting on Monday, July 30th at 7:30 am in the Board Conference Room for an executive session to discuss the employment history of a particular personnel.
