Dear Parents and Guardians,

After a long stretch of snow days, everyone was in good spirits to return to school today!

Next week we have several events scheduled to make up from cancellations.

Tuesday, March 13th – Freshman Orientation Night 7pm – Performing Arts Center (PAC)

Wednesday, March 14th – Mu Alpha Theta Induction 7pm – PAC

Thursday, March 15th – College Admissions Night 7pm – Cafeteria

Due to the long stretch of snow days, our Unity Breakfast that we were planning for March 14 is being postponed to an April date. We feel it’s important to support our students who want to recognize the National School Walkout; however, we also feel that it’s vital for students to have a routine and return to some normalcy after a tumultuous week.

When the weather is warmer, we are planning for a meaningful celebration that highlights the importance of a connected community to create a safe environment for all students. At that time, the entire school will join together on the turf for student speeches; songs from our own acapella group, TempoMental, as well as a light breakfast for everyone to share in. Students who choose to walk out on March 14 for the National Walk Out will not be penalized. However, to assure every child’s safety, we recommend that they make us aware when they leave the building.

I hope that everyone who has been without power is restored very soon. Putnam Valley is a resilient community and our thoughts are with those who have been struggling through these storms.
