As many of you may already know, DeRuyter has lost a cherished member of our community. Steve Camelbeek, a beloved forty-two year veteran of our faculty and coach, passed away last Friday. We deeply mourn the loss of Mr. Camelbeek and the love of teaching, coaching, energy and passion for children he brought to DeRuyter Central School District. Calling hours will be held at the school from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Thursday, September 5, 2013.
In light of Mr. Camelbeek's passing we have had to alter our schedule for the first week of school. Students will be dismissed on Thursday, September 5th at 11:30 a.m. and again on Friday September 6th at 11:30 a.m. All after-school activities will be cancelled on Thursday, September 5, 2013, including athletics. After-school activities will resume on Friday, September 6, 2013.
We appreciate your understanding, support and flexibility at this difficult time. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Mrs. O'Brien at 852-3400 x 7122 or Dr. Feinberg at 852-3400 x 7105.
