    Although it should go without saying, acts of racism, discrimination, and intolerance have no place in this community or any other across this country. However, as the recent senseless and shameful death of George Floyd, and other Black Americans has made clear, they continue to occur. As I have reflected upon these events and their aftermath, my emotions have ranged from anger and sadness to grief and shame. They have been visceral and overwhelming. In our diverse community, it is critical that we not only renounce such acts, and the dehumanizing and harmful physical and emotional injuries which racism and hatred breed daily, but that we also resolve ourselves to work together to change this narrative.

  • Message from the Superintendent

    I trust this letter finds you and your families healthy and well. I am writing today to provide you with some important updates and reminders. When Governor Cuomo issued his Executive Order mandating the closure of all New York schools, he required that districts work through all scheduled vacations in order for Learning from Home days to be counted toward the required 180 days of instruction. As you recall, Spring Break and the Friday before Memorial Day, which were scheduled days of vacation, became days of instruction. At last evening’s Board of Education meeting, the Board adopted a revised calendar which deducts the seven days, which were scheduled vacations, from the end of June. As a result, the last day of school/Learning from Home for students is now, June 17, 2020.

  • Washington Irving Students Deliver to Essential Workers

    Like many teachers reaching out to students during the pandemic, Kaycee Von Essen sees great lessons in small actions. The reading teacher encouraged the staff and students at Washington Irving to write letters to essential workers. Von Essen started an internal mail system called “Wee Deliver” before the COVID-19 outbreak based on the United States Postal Service Wee Deliver campaign. She wanted to promote reading and writing skills. The mini post office also fostered a sense of unity throughout the school. In the month before the pause, more than 1,000 letters were written and delivered by WI students and staff.

  • Advocacy

    Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Division of the Budget are predicting a $10-15 billion dollar shortfall in anticipated state revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor has warned that, without more assistance from the federal government, the result could be a twenty percent or greater reduction in state aid to New York school districts and also significant decreases to aid for municipalities. This massive reduction in funding would have a devastating impact upon the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns.

    Dear TUFSD Families and Staff, Due to Governor Cuomo's Executive Order stating that school districts must exhaust all vacation days during our closure, Friday, May 22, 2020 will be a day of Learning from Home, not a day of vacation. On Monday, May 25, 2020 there will be no Learning from Home in observance of Memorial Day, which is a national holiday. Christopher Borsari Superintendent

  • Spring Sports

    Dear Parents and Students in the Public School of the Tarrytowns: The Tarrytown Union Free School District, in collaboration with Section One (a section of NYSPHSSA, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association), is making plans for a potential spring sports season. Any initiation of school athletics will be done in accordance with state and county mandates, and I need to underscore that any plans we make will only go into effect if schools are reopened this year. That said, if there is an opportunity to salvage any of this athletic season in a safe way, we want to be ready to go.
