    Dear TUFSD Families & Staff, One John Paulding employee has reported positive COVID-19 test results to the District. The District has notified the Westchester County Department of Health, who is responsible for contact tracing. The employee has not been in school since the Holiday Recess so there were no potential exposures to be notified by the District. The employee is currently in quarantine. As an update, John Paulding will remain in an all-remote instructional model on Monday, January 11, 2021, but will return to the hybrid instructional model on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 for Cohort A students.

    Dear TUFSD Families and Staff, On Friday, January 8, 2021 one Sleepy Hollow High School employee and one Sleepy Hollow Middle School student reported positive COVID-19 test results to the District. Contact tracing was completed and no close contacts were identified. Today, one Washington Irving student, and five Sleepy Hollow High School students have reported positive COVID-19 test results to the District. The District has notified the Westchester County Department of Health, who is responsible for contact tracing. Our District COVID Coordinator, Scott Dorn, is working with the Department of Health on the implementation of this process. The Washington Irving student was not in school during their infectious period and four of the Sleepy Hollow High School students are remote. However, one Sleepy Hollow High School student has been in school. Mr. Dorn’s office will notify those Sleepy Hollow High School students and employees who were close contacts by 6:00PM. The COVID positive employee and students are currently in quarantine. Additionally, after careful analysis of data provided to the Westchester Department of Health (DOH) by regional school districts, the DOH has provided school districts with updated guidance on quarantining those who have been exposed to individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. This revised guidance was shared with districts late on Friday, January 8, 2021.

  • Tarrytown Celebrates Pearl Harbor Centenarian

    It takes a special kind of person to endear themselves to both children and adults for decades and that is exactly what sets Sleepy Hollow resident Armando “Chick” Galella apart from others. On Jan. 4, the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns wished Galella, a Pearl Harbor survivor, a Happy 100th Birthday and threw him a virtual party with family members, faculty, school leaders and students in attendance. Galella turned 100 years young on New Year’s Day.

    Dear TUFSD Families and Staff: This past weekend, residents of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown alerted law enforcement that stickers promoting a hate group, named Patriot Front, had been found throughout both Villages. Swift action was taken by the community and police to remove the stickers, initiate an investigation, and our local officials quickly denounced this show of hate. On behalf of the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns, I want to express our disgust for the beliefs and actions of these hate groups and reiterate that there is no place for racist, derogatory, discriminatory and/or biased words or actions within our school district. I am gratified to know that community members spoke up about these stickers. Through our ongoing work with our district equity stakeholder team and the NYU Metro Center, we have learned that bystanders of acts of hate must also be held accountable, act as agents of change, and take responsibility for impacting their sphere of influence through their own initiative and upstanding words, actions, and behaviors.
