  • Message from the Superintendent

    During a press conference this afternoon, Governor Hochul announced that the school mask mandate in New York would no longer be in effect beginning this Wednesday, March 2, 2022.  As a result, on Wednesday, the wearing of masks by students and staff will be a personal/family decision. However, on Monday and Tuesday of this week, masks will still be required to be worn in our buildings and on our buses.   The Governor stated that this decision was based upon improved COVID metrics across the state as well as the new CDC masking guidelines issued on Friday. While not unexpected, this raises numerous questions to which we will be seeking clarification. This will begin tomorrow at our weekly Monday morning meeting with George Latimer and the Westchester County team. We will continue to keep you updated on any additional changes/information.

Students had the rare opportunity of witnessing the behind-the-scenes creative process of world class artists, as well as participate in a Q&A following the performance. They even saw a few peers and teachers try their hand at Krumping! At the end of the performance, one Sleepy student said “I felt that in my heart.” The performance was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
