W’ville Full-Day Kindergarten to Start at Round Hill
All kindergarten full-day classes in the Washingtonville Central School District will be held at Round Hill Elementary School’s new kindergarten wing starting this September. Teachers there have been getting their brand-new classrooms ready, while over at Taft, where half-day AM and PM kindergarten used to be held, the classrooms have been converted into regular-use classrooms.
Steven Amante, who is Blooming Grove’s Ward #6 Representative, has been working with the State of New York to obtain a traffic slowing device …. before and after the intersection of Route 208 and Round Hill Rd. just before Round Hill since speeding is already an issue there. They are “Rumble Strips, which are different from speed bumps. Speed Bumps are raised and cannot be used on main roads since they are an issue for plowing during winter. Rumble Strips are recessed and do not pose a problem for road crews.
