YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Yorktown Central School District Superintendent Ralph Napolitano welcomes students for the 2014-2015 school year and discusses changes to Yorktown schools in a letter to the community.
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
I hope that this letter finds all of you well and enjoying the beautiful summer. While I would never want to be accused of being the Grinch who stole the summer, in just a short time from your receipt of this letter, I will be welcoming everyone back. In fact, our teachers are scheduled to return on Wednesday, Aug. 27. So, the good news is that all of you have a little bit more time off beyond their return.
This summer, our middle school has had some significant renovations which have provided security enhancements as well as aesthetic improvements.
Our maintenance and grounds staff have been busy cleaning and preparing for the return of all of our students in grades K-9 on Tuesday, Sept. 2. In order to provide our freshmen students with a full day of orientation, high school students in grades 10-12 will return on Wednesday, Sept. 3, with the exception of those involved in the “Big Buddy” program.
We are excited to welcome nine full-day Kindergarten classes and are enthusiastic about their programs at Brookside and Mohansic schools.
This summer, our reading program, English language learner program and extended life skills programs were successfully run at YHS.
Additionally, we have given a lot of thought to the development of our annual Superintendent’s Action Plan based upon our Board of Education goals. It will be shared with our faculty and staff on Wednesday, Aug. 27, and with the rest of our school community on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
We look forward to the return of our students. Best wishes for a positive attitude to guide you through the year.
