I hope this letter finds you well. Thanksgiving is that time to take a moment to reflect on what we are truly thankful for. I will repeat what I said to the Kindergarten parents at our Open House, I am so thankful to work with your children and your families as a whole every day. I am also very thankful to work in a community that is so supportive. In addition, I am thankful to be a part of such a great group of educators that work here at Upper Nyack Elementary School.
Here are a few items for your attention and assistance:
Early Dismissal – THIS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27th – 11:45 a.m. If someone is coming to pick up your child on that day, please inform them of our pick up procedures with regard to appropriate parking in the car rider, pick up and bus lanes, etc. I thank you for doing this!!!
P.T.A. Meeting – Will be RESCHEDULED to Monday, December 9th at 7:00 p.m.
Parent/Teacher Afternoon Conferences: Friday, December 13th & 20th - Students dismissed at 11:45am. Parent/Teacher Evening Conference: Monday, December 16th
Book Fair – Monday, December 16 – Friday, December 20th (UNES Gym)
WEATHER-RELATED EARLY DISMISSAL – Winter is certainly on its way as we can tell by the temperature change. During poor weather conditions, and in the interest of safety, the district and our school could dismiss early. While it does not happen often, it can AND HAS happened. For that reason, I send this notification to remind you that it is always good to have a back-up dismissal plan for your child. Whether it is another parent picking up your child on that day or a neighbor receiving them off a bus, now is the time to make arrangements. Our families have always done a magnificent job in making alternate dismissal plans and I thought that this would be a good time to remind all of us.
Character visit to Upper Nyack - On Wednesday, November 27, please be advised that Elmo and Donald Duck will be at Upper Nyack Elementary greeting your children as they make their way into school.
On behalf of all of us at Upper Nyack Elementary, we wish you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Mr. Joe Mercora
