Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! As with the previous Spring, there will be changes to the way that we normally do things, due to the pandemic. Even though that may be the case, we will be steadfast in our desire to give our students the best education possible! Our teachers and staff are ready to meet the upcoming challenges, head on. Together we will prevail.

 As per our district’s directive, our children will begin remote learning on Thursday, September 10th. I am excited about our opportunity to work collaboratively to provide the best educational experiences for them.

We are happy to add some key staff members to help us with our continuing quest for excellence. They bring new energy and enthusiasm to Emerson School. They are: Ms. Cynthia Fuentes/1st Grade, Ms. Tenisha Fort/2nd Grade, Ms. Teri Abano/3rd Grade, Mrs. Kaleena Mascola/3rd Grade, and Ms. Elaine Reinman/ Grade 5. We welcome them to the Emerson family!

For the parents of our newest students, our Kindergarteners, we will have Kindergarten Orientations on Wednesday, September 9th through Friday, September 11th, in our cafetorium. We will observe recommended safety protocols of social distancing and the wearing of masks. Only the Kindergarten student and 1 parent will be allowed to attend at the prearranged time. Kindergarten teachers will call the parents to schedule the orientation sessions. No walkups will be allowed to attend!! Only confirmed parents and students will be allowed in the building. Parents will receive their student’s electronic device, as well as, important information from their student’s teacher.

Lastly, for our other parents new to Emerson School, our PTO will be arranging a Virtual Meeting to welcome you to our school family and provide you with much needed information. Information will be forthcoming about this and student electronic devices. I thank you for your anticipated cooperation for the upcoming school year. We remain positive, productive and proud!
