Dear Ward Families,

The City School District will be having an Early Dismissal Drill.

The law requires the School District to hold an Early Dismissal Drill each year. The drill is part of the State Emergency Preparedness Program.

The Early Dismissal Drill for elementary schools will be held:
Friday, October 31, 2014 at 3:00 p.m.

Bus companies, the Police Department and crossing guards will be notified.

Since we will be dismissing 15 minutes earlier, please plan to expect your children home that much earlier on that day. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Franco J. Miele, Principal

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.

New York State's $2 Billion Smart Schools Bond Act Referendum Includes $3.5 Million for New Rochelle Schools

Vote on Bond (Proposal #3) is November 4, 2014

In January 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo called for New York State to invest $2 billion in its schools through a Smart Schools Bond Act that will build out schools and classrooms for the 21st Century to ensure that students graduate with the skills they need to thrive in the economy of today and tomorrow.

 
Specifically, if this proposal is passed, it would provide funding to allow school districts to: 1) purchase technology equipment such as interactive whiteboards and computers; 2) install high-speed wireless internet connectivity in schools and communities; 3) construct and modernize educational facilities; and 4) install high-tech security features in school buildings and on school campuses.


Should the Smart Schools Bond Act Referendum, Proposal #3, pass on November 4, 2014, The City School District of New Rochelle will receive over $3.5 million in funding for these projects.

Please remember to vote November 4, 2014.
