Storm Update

Good Morning-

We were very fortunate to have missed the brunt of the hurricane, but others were not as lucky. As we have done in other state emergencies, we are encouraging students to band together and find ways to help those in need to our west and east. I have been through a house flood and they are devastating, no matter how much insurance one has.

We are all New Yorkers and let's take some time to organize and show that we are here to help. Our community is very powerful when it bands together and now is a great time for us to shine again and help those in need.  Be on the lookout for student driven initiatives.

Power was out at the high school and bus garage yesterday for approximately 45 minutes due to a transformer issue on Milton Avenue. I appreciate the high school faculty, staff, and students, as well as our transportation personnel who were able to dismiss students quickly without radios, phones, or public address systems.

Not a long post, but wanted to make sure all of you have the most updated information about what is happening in the District.

Have a great rest of the day.
