Due to an error in the calculation of the number of required instructional hours in our 2019-20 calendar, we will need to recoup the remainder of the late start Fridays and utilize this time as instructional time. The late start Fridays are as follows: February 7, February 28, March 13, March 27, and April 24, 2020. On these dates, students will now start their school day at the regular start time. We are awaiting confirmation on the potential of other changes that may impact how we planned to use March 18, June 24, June 25, June 26, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience that these changes may cause you and will provide confirmation as soon as possible regarding the use of March 18, June 24, June 25, June 26, 2020. The development of the 2020-21 calendar is being finalized and will be presented to the Board of Education at its March 2, 2020 meeting. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Warm regards, Valerie Henning-Piedmonte
The Hastings-on-Hudson UFSD believes that all students can learn. It is the district’s responsibility to prepare students with the knowledge, understanding, skills, and strategies they need to be productive, responsible citizens in a democratic society. We view our schools as communities of learners. Each individual is valued as a unique person and as a member of the larger group. We model a safe, caring community in which students, teachers, administrators, and parents have real opportunities for collaborative participation through which to attain our educational goals. We strive to help students develop lifelong capacities to enjoy learning, working, and relating to others. We value education because it is a process which helps each individual to achieve his/her maximum potential.
