  • REMINDER Regarding the District's NEW Media Release Opt-Out Form and Protocol

    Parents and Guardians: the District has a NEW Media Release/Opt Out protocol that will go into effect this month, October, 2016.  All parents/guardians should have received the attached letter in their summer mailing  that  included  a September 26th deadline for any "Opt Outs".   Parents/guardians who do not wish their child's photograph to be featured on our new websites must have checked the appropriate boxes on this form and have sent it back to their child's school.  Please call the District's Office of Public Relations at (845) 353-7013 with any questions regarding this new protocol.  The Media Opt Out Form is one that can be filled out at any time but must be kept at the school building level for easy access by staff and to ensure that the protocol  is effectively followed. The District looks forward to celebrating daily accomplishments and sharing them via posts to our new District sites.

Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

 Dear Friends,

I hope this letter finds you well.  As we enter the season of Thanksgiving, we have so many reasons to be thankful.  Personally, I am thankful to have your children and family  in my life.  I am so lucky to have such a dynamic group of educators working with me at Upper Nyack.  It was great seeing so many of you at our second annual Sesame Street Day, first ever Mickey Mouse Day and that wonderful Harlem Wizards Game.

 Thank you to our parent volunteers that assisted in our wonderful book fair.  Thank you Ms. Dianne Snyder for another successful book fair.  Thank you Ms. Mandy Aikens for taking the lead in organizing our Harlem Wizards Game.  Our PTA is amazing!

November is a busy month so please keep these dates in mind:

  • Tuesday, November 29th – Sibling Pictures/Individual Student Re-takes
  • November 30th – Nyack Special Education Parent Teacher Student Association Meeting at Nyack Middle School at 7:00 p.m.

 Student Safety Morning Arrivals:

If you are dropping off your child, please proceed South on Broadway and use the "fast drop off lane" that is identifiable by a set of orange cones separating this lane from the "through traffic."  Please pull your vehicle all the way up in the drop off lane to allow cars to pull up and unload at the same time.  This car drop off lane is for quick drop off only.  Parents of Kindergarten students cannot use the "drop off" lane.  No one will be allowed to drop off a child while traveling north on Broadway.  You may, however, park the car while traveling North on Broadway and have the student exit the passenger side and cross at the crossing guard.  U-Turns are not permitted.  DO NOT pull into staff parking lot to drop off children as this is very dangerous to students walking to school.  Friendly reminder: THERE IS NO ADULT SUPERVISION AT SCHOOL PRIOR TO 8:00AM.

 Afternoon Dismissal:

When picking up your child, you may use the "car rider lane."  Cars will be able to line up in the "pick-up lane" directly in front of the school.  Drivers will remain in their cars and children will be able to safely enter the cars in the lane.  As vehicles leave the lane, you must be prepared to move up to make room for the cars behind.  If your child is picked up as a walker, you may park at a distance and walk to the school.  Please note there are "No Parking" signs located in front of the Old Stone Church as well as from Birchwood Avenue to Upper Nyack's parking lot.

We look forward to the month of December and all of the wonderful events happening at Upper Nyack Elementary School.  On behalf of the Upper Nyack School family, please accept my wishes for a happy and safe Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Mr. Joseph Mercora
