Dear Tuckahoe Families,

Over the past week, we celebrated the homecoming of the Tuckahoe Tigers in victory for the ages. Cheered on by our talented cheerleaders, the game highlighted our eight graduating seniors and the potential of our younger players. Meanwhile, we celebrated accomplishments in the New York State Science Olympiad, and our Cottle Cubs participated in a virtual science fair. Tuckahoe leads the way. 

TUFSD 2021 Capital Bond Project 
On May 18, the community will vote on a budget and a bond for a proposed capital project. This project will provide upgrades and renovations to our infrastructure at both buildings. As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” The video below showcases pictures and walkthroughs of our previous capital project, and previews the scope of our proposed project. A special thank you to our Facilities Committee for their  visionary planning. President Peter Casson produced the video linked below, integrating simulations from the architects at KG&D. Please click the link below to watch and understand the success of the previous bond and the scope of the proposed capital improvement project: 

Desk Shields
A call to our aspiring engineers! The New York State Department of Health updated their health guidance for schools and no longer recommends the use of desk shields. Unfortunately, we now have a stockpile of plastic desk shields. What do we do with these? As we just celebrated Earth Day, I am turning this question into a contest to help protect our environment. Our innovative community is invited to present ideas to a panel of building and district leaders on how to reuse or dispose of these materials in an environmentally friendly way. Students can bring ideas to their teachers, who will submit their ideas to our leadership team. 

Vaccines
All New Yorkers 16 and older are now eligible for walk-in appointments at any New York State vaccination site. No appointment is needed. The Westchester County Center is offering Pfizer, which is currently the approved vaccine  for individuals 16 through 18. Parent consent is required. You can call the NYS Vaccine Hotline at 1-833-697-4829 or click here for more information. 

If you are fully vaccinated, the CDC and NYS  says you can now take your mask off at small outdoor gatherings, or when dining outside with friends from multiple households. Vaccinated individuals do not have to quarantine. Again, this is an individual decision, and if you have any questions contact your healthcare professional.

Have a good weekend. As always, Tuckahoe continues to shine. Let’s continue to build on the positive and let’s continue to lead the way!

Sincerely,

Dr. Amy Goodman
Superintendent of Schools
