    Dear TUFSD Families and Staff, I am writing as a follow up to my September 28, 2020 letters regarding an employee testing positive for COVID-19 at both Morse and Washington Irving. Scott Dorn, our District COVID Coordinator worked with the building administration and the infected individuals to identify any potential close contacts. This information was shared with the Westchester County Department of Health (DOH) on Monday, and each potential close contact was notified by the District and told to quarantine until the DOH completes its investigation through the contact tracing process. As of the writing of this letter, the DOH has not completed its investigation. Out of an abundance of caution and to allow families and staff to plan, Morse and Washington Irving will both remain on remote learning for all students and staff, tomorrow, Thursday, October 1, 2020.

    It was wonderful to see our students return to the buildings as our orientations were held this week. Many thanks to our faculty, staff, and administrators for their organization and hosting of these important events. As I heard one parent say as she and her son entered Washington Irving Intermediate School, “It’s been so long and it feels great to be here!” At the same time, remote learning has begun with an abbreviated day and students are getting acquainted with their teachers and the current expectations. Whether remote or in our buildings, we are committed to ensuring each student is engaged in learning. We anxiously await the start of hybrid in person learning beginning this Monday, September 21 for Cohort A and on Thursday, September 24 for Cohort B.

    Let me begin this weekly update by recognizing that today is September 11, a day of national mourning and reflection. It’s hard to fathom that the majority of our high school seniors had not yet been born when these horrific acts occurred. Yet it is critically important that we continue to remember and honor those who were lost that day and to carry forth the memory of their loss and the valiant efforts of so many first responders.

    This week, we welcomed back our faculty and staff as we kicked off the 2020-2021 school year with our annual Superintendent’s Conference days. Among many activities, these days include training on our new health and safety procedures, and workshops focused upon technology integration, remote learning, trauma informed instruction, and equity in the time of COVID-19. Each of these days and workshops are designed to prepare our staff for teaching and supporting our students in this new environment. Most importantly, it was wonderful to see colleagues reconnecting and to have our buildings filled with energy once again

    I hope this letter finds you and your family well, and that you’re enjoying the end of the summer break. As we approach the first conference day for teachers next week, and our students’ first day of school on September 10, I want to ensure that everyone has seen the Phased Reopening Calendar that we issued earlier this week. This weekly update continues to provide information about our reopening plans, as well as resources to help families through the upcoming transition. I also want to remind you to access the Recovery Planning page as a valuable resource.
