April 8 COVID-19 update: Special area classes continue virtually; meal program available

Special area classes like physical education, library, music, family and consumer sciences, technology and art are continuing for Fayetteville-Manlius School District students during the school closure period.

To help maintain students’ school connection, F-M’s special area educators have been posting assignments, activities, videos, challenges and more to their classes on the virtual learning platform, Schoology. Some educators are also hosting virtual discussion forums so that students can check in and share with peers what they’re learning about.

Students should be accessing all of their special area classes daily on Schoology for activities and assignments. 

Meals available for all F-M students

While sporting practices and interscholastic athletic contests, rehearsals, concerts, shows, school events, activities and after-school programs remain canceled through April 29, F-M will continue providing meals to students.

The district’s Food Service Department offers pre-packaged breakfast and lunch meals so that students have access to nutritional foods each day school is closed. The meals are provided at no cost to F-M students regardless of family income.

Families who have not already signed up for the meal service should contact F-M’s Food Service Director at 315-692-1809 or

Continued communications

The district will continue to update the community via the district website with any new information and frequently asked questions.

Any time-sensitive, critical information will be shared via the district’s SchoolMessenger notification system, which sends email, text message and phone call notifications, depending upon how parents subscribed to the system.
