Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora










Good Afternoon Amazing Families of Upper Nyack Elementary School,


I wanted to take this opportunity to again thank you for all of your support these past months. We are finished with winter and look forward to the warmer months ahead. Your children are doing remarkable work and we are all so proud of them. Today we will say good-bye to another Upper Nyack Elementary School legend. Our Family Resource Coordinator Ms. Rachel Berlin will be leaving us to take on another adventure in life. Rachel has been a tireless advocate for children and families for eighteen years at Upper Nyack. We will miss her and thank her for all that she has done for our school and community. 


Just a few items:


1. Spring Break begins today. School will resume on Tuesday, April 6th.


2. Report Conferences are back. Once again all conferences will be virtual through ZOOM. Day conferences will be on April 9th and 16th. On those days all instruction will stop at 11:45 a.m. so conferences can begin. Evening Conferences will be Thursday, April 15th. All conferences are by appointment only. Our teachers have and will be reaching out to schedule conferences. 


3. TRAVEL - Just a REMINDER that if your family is traveling over the break to please adhere to New York State Guidelines for quarantining as they apply. If you have any questions about this please call the school at 845-353-7260 or email our nurse Ms. Laura Weigel.


4. A personal thank you to all of our families for keeping us all safe! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. 


We wish you all a SAFE and RESTFUL break. 




Mr. Joseph Mercora
