Message from Mrs. Richardson

Dear York Avenue Families,

We had a wonderful first week of school! We have been so happy to see our students' smiling faces as they come in.

Please enjoy your Labor Day weekend and Happy Rosh Hashanah to our families of Jewish culture and faith.

Back to School Night on Tuesday, 9/14/21, at 6:30 will be virtual this year. I will be sending more information, including Google links, later this week.

As a reminder, there is no school on Monday, September 6, and Tuesday, September 7. Have a great long weekend!


Dipa P. Richardson
