Dear Tuckahoe Schools Community:

As we close the 2020-21 school year, we celebrate the many accomplishments of our graduates. This past Wednesday evening, we applauded the Tuckahoe High School Class of 2021. We spotlighted their hard work, while student and faculty speakers wished them the very best in their future endeavors. The world is very lucky to have these resilient young men and women leading the way. 

We marked other milestone transitions: including our Kindergarten Graduation, our Fifth Grade Graduation, and our Tuckahoe Middle School Eighth Grade Graduation. We appreciated the expressions of pride as we celebrated outdoors, handing students their diplomas with a smile. The smiles made all this year’s configurations, sacrifices, and hard work worth it. 

At our June 7 Board of Education meeting, we acknowledged the hard work and dedication of both our instructional and non-instructional staff. I thanked the board for their dedication to the community. I also thanked the parents for their devotion, unwavering support, and partnership. Every success over this past year is shared. We made it the best year it could be. We were #TuckahoeInThisTogether.  

In my remarks to our high school graduates, I stressed the importance of involvement in civics within their community and country. Students who graduate from Tuckahoe have the critical thinking skills, the social emotional aptitude, and the depth of knowledge to make a real impact on the world. Our talented teachers, caring community, and hardworking student body makes Tuckahoe a district that uniquely prepares students for the world that awaits them.

This year is a testament to the grit, perseverance, and promise that the Tuckahoe Union Free School District embodies. I am proud to have led this district through the pandemic, and eager to continue our climb to new heights. We wish all families a wonderful summer. 

Sincerely,

Dr. Amy Goodman
Superintendent of Schools

  • Update On Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK)

    Dear Tuckahoe School Community,

    I want to update you on our previous communication regarding Universal Pre-K.  The Tuckahoe School District is continuing to work on a plan to offer a Universal Pre-K (UPK) for the 2021-2022 school year. Should we get the program, it will be for children that will be 4 years of age by December 1st,  2021.  Parents of Tuckahoe resident students in this age group will be eligible to apply for a lottery seat for Universal Pre-K if this comes to fruition. Seats will be selected through a random lottery.

    The Cornerstone Children's Center, which is opening in the Village of Tuckahoe, located at 65 Main Street in Tuckahoe, has agreed to be our community partner (where the program will be housed). They are currently awaiting approval of their license from NYS with an anticipated opening date of September 07, 2021.

    I share this information with the community for transparency purposes, as I am relatively confident this will happen.  When we know we are moving forward, most likely by the end of the month, we will share detailed information about the program and the lottery process. We will get the information to all families through our website, mail, email, and community forums. We are thankful to the Cornerstone Children’s Center for their partnership. Information will be forthcoming as we learn more.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Amy Goodman
    Superintendent of Schools
