  • School Remind

    We only have about 180 parents signed up for our school's remind app, which means there is about 500 parents who are still not signed up. Here you will receive important information on school events and other activities! Please see attached for steps on how to sign up. Remind can be a very useful tool.

  • New Morning Arrival location

    Hello Parents and Guardians,

    We wanted to inform you about the new location for the morning arrival. The old location was at the side door on West Street. The new location will be the side door on East 1st. This will enable parents who drive to have a drop and go, which will also ease traffic in the area.

  • Please Look Below to Fill Out the Lunch Form Before School!

    Filling out the lunch form online before school starts will make the lunch process easier. This way if possible, you can avoid bills in error or know if you need to pay.

Parent and Family Resources

A critical component of a student’s success in school is dependent on what and how they learn at home. The Toolkit for Parents and Families is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and families understand the New York State education reform initiatives and how the changes will help your child graduate from high school ready for college and careers. We encourage parents and families to use these tools in conjunction with resources and information you receive from your child’s school and teachers. We will continue to build upon this toolkit as we receive feedback from educators and families.

In the Toolkit for Parents and Families:

The Common Core State Standards are important because they will help all children – no matter who they are – learn the same skills. They create clear expectations for what your child should know and be able to do in key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics. If you know what these expectations are, then you can work with the teacher and help your child prepare.

Watch the videos below for an overview of the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.
