Putnam Valley Elementary School

Dear PVES Families,

I hope this note finds you healthy and getting into the holiday spirit!  It will be a short week of remote learning at PVES this week, and we thank you all for your cooperation and support during these challenging times.  All elementary students should follow their full-day Remote Schedules as posted on our website:  www.pvcsd.org.  Please click on the Elementary tab, and click on the red letters on the upper right corner.  It is important to remind your children that these next three days are school days, and students should attend all lessons virtually.  Students should leave their cameras on during lessons. Our teachers look forward to seeing all of the children tomorrow!

I invite all staff and students to our Virtual Pajama Day on this Wednesday, December 23rd.  As we ring in the holiday season, students and staff are welcome to wear their cozy winter pajamas to their Google Meet lessons on Wednesday.  We will certainly miss our whole-school Sing Along this week, but we hope to schedule a similar event in the later spring months.  Better days are ahead!

Please reach out directly to your child’s teachers with any questions concerning classwork, material pick-up, or class schedules.  We will continue with our Remote Instruction after the break from January 4th through January 8th. You may contact me or Mr. Chickery with questions at 845-528-8092.

I wish you and your families a very Happy Holiday Season!  Stay healthy and well.  I will continue to stay in touch.


Dr. Podesta
