    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    I look forward to working with you and your children during this new school year! We are facing this "new normal" together and will navigate whatever obstacles come our way as a team. My goal is to educate all students and make sure that this new format of learning is as stress-free as possible. Let's make this year a positive and memorable one for our students!
     
    Please e-mail me at the above address to request being added to Google classroom.  This will allow you to see weekly assignments and monitor your child's progress.  However, please note that all grades are posted in Infinite Campus and are updated regularly. It is highly recommended that both students and parents are familiar with the portals available in Infinite Campus in order to see the most accurate and up to date information pertaining to grades.     
     
    Please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or by calling the school at 914-737-0201. I cannot wait to work with you all!
     
    Thank you,
     
    Mr. Tamborski
