UPDATED 10/21/19, 12:05 pm: Repairs Have Restored Full Telephone Service to CLS; Early Morning Rhinebeck Village Power Outage Crashed Incoming Telephone Calls to CLS Until Repairs Could Be Made

UPDATE: 12:05 pm - Repairs have been made to the telephone system at CLS effective 12:05 pm. Please proceed to make telephone calls directly to CLS, as usual. Thank you again for your patience! 


Monday, October 21, 2019, 9:30 am - Due to the early morning power outage today in the Village of Rhinebeck, and specifically to the school district's two school buildings (resulting in a two hour delay today), a critical piece of electronic equipment necessary to link the internet between CLS and BMS/RHS/District Office, including the District's VOIP (Voice Over Internet protocol) telephone system was damaged. As a result, while outgoing calls from CLS can be made today, incoming calls CAN NOT be received by the CLS staff.

Until this electronic equipment can be repaired/replaced, which we expect to occur later today, if you need to get an EMERGENCY MESSAGE to CLS, please call the Superintendents Office (871-5500 and then extension 5522), ask to speak with the Superintendent's Assistant, Ms. Whitney Druker, and we will radio your brief message, i.e. "This is Mrs. xxx. Please have Mr. yyy call me today at zzz-zzzz" to the CLS office.  

We will post an announcement when direct phone service to BMS/RHS and District Office has been restored by our provider.
