Principal's Message

Dear Parents,


As we get closer to the spring, the snow is melting, and more outside play will take place. Please make sure the students are dressed to be outside in the cold temperatures.


Parent Teacher Conferences will not take place on March 11th and it will now be a regular instructional day for students and staff. According to the calendar changes, this will be a Day 2. Parents who would still like to communicate with their child’s teacher to review their progress via a phone conference, should email the teacher who will be setting up appointments over a two-week period from March 11th through March 25th. All report cards will be accessible to parents of students in grades 1-6 on Wednesday, March 10th after 3:00 pm on the parent portal.


Our next PTA ZOOM meeting will be at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, March 24th. I hope you can join us.


As always, thank you for your support this year in keeping our students and staff safe.


Sincerely,

Hillary Bromberg, Ed.D.

Enrichment for All

Did You Know we Have a Direct Absence Line?

Please be reminded that regular school attendance is not only mandated by law, but is a key ingredient for educational success. Legal reasons for absences include: illness, death in family, court appearances, and observance of religious holidays. If your child is frequently absent due to illness, you will be contacted and medical documentation may be requested. All other absences will be considered unexcused or truant.


Please also be aware that lateness to school can be considered partial truancy and is monitored as closely as absences. Chronic lateness is disruptive to the students in the class, the teacher, and most importantly, to the child. Parents and guardians are asked to contact the school to report each absence. This can be done by calling our Absentee Line at 516-379-3733. If you are requesting classwork and/or homework for your child on the day of the absence, please leave that message with the nurse or on the absence line. Parents are requested to submit a written and signed excuse note for each absence your child has, when they return to school.
