  • Mayor Butler Meets with Students and Shares Important Lesson about Perseverance and Teamwork

    “I think I can, I think I can….” Those four important words make many people think of the classic children’s book, “The Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper. Although nearly a century old now, this inspirational message seems more relevant than ever. That is part of the reason that Village of Tarrytown Mayor Butler chose to read this particular book to second grade students at Morse elementary school.

  • January 26, 2021 -COVID Surveillance Testing

    Dear Families and Staff, As I informed you in my January 22, 2021 Community Update, the District has collaborated with the Westchester County Department of Health to receive additional SARS-CoV-2 rapid antigen tests. The acquisition of these tests will allow us to conduct a minimum of four weeks of surveillance testing of randomly selected in-person students and staff. This testing is not mandated by New York State, but rather a voluntary action by the District to help ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. We will be testing 5% of our in-person students and staff per week to bring us to our monthly goal of 20%. If you have not already done so, please complete and submit the consent for testing form which can be accessed at this consent for testing link. Fully remote students do not need to complete a consent form. We will begin testing with Cohort A and staff on Monday, February 1, 2021.
