Dear Families:

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will be visiting our school on April 9, 10, and 11, 2019, to learn about how the school operates and work with us to find ways to help the school improve.

The team visiting our school is very interested in getting feedback from families about the school and hearing their ideas about improving the school.  We have arranged for the State Education Department Team to meet with parents on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. in the Library.

During the session, parents will be asked a variety of questions.  There are no right or wrong answers. We are looking for parents to answer honestly so the State Education Department team can learn from you and provide our school with the best possible recommendations.

Your insight is very valuable to this process, and the team is very eager to hear your feedback.  We hope you will be able to attend the meeting on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. If you plan to attend, please send an email to Candy Sweener at or call her at 518-658-1500, extension 1001.
