Join us in partnership as we kick off a new school year and prepare all students to be "Future-Ready". With a shared vision developed with YOU - our community - we are focused on seven core competencies representing our Profile of a Nyack Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Cultural Competence, Content Mastery.
"In our schools, we are committed to the belief that all students possess great natural abilities. At the most fundamental level, the focus on education has to be on creating conditions in which students will want and be able to learn. When children are encouraged to be curious and explore, the learning process opens up to new possibilities." - James Montesano, Superintendent of Schools
Together, we are building bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with equity, innovation and optimism.
ATHLETIC FIELD UPDATE: Please view the attached Q&A
To keep our community informed regarding the status of our athletic fields, the District has put together an update with Q&A. This will also be posted via Peachjar for District families.
The safety and well-being of all students and staff is of highest priority. Emergencies and violent incidents in school districts are critical issues that must be addressed in an expeditious and effective manner. Nyack School District is required to develop a district wide school safety plan designed to prevent or minimize the effects of serious, violent incidents and emergencies and to facilitate the coordination of schools with local and county resources in the event of such incidents or emergencies.
The District Wide Plan is responsive to the needs of all schools within the district and is consistent with the more detailed emergency response plans required at the school building level. Schools are at risk of a wide variety of acts of violence and natural and technological disasters. To address these threats, the State of New York has enacted the Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) law. This component of Project SAVE is a comprehensive planning effort that addresses risk reduction/prevention, response, and recovery with respect to a variety of emergencies in the Nyack Union Free School District and its schools.
