Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff,

On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to offer our sincerest thanks to everyone – teachers, staff, custodians, administrators, parents/guardians, etc. – who have all been doing their very best under unprecedented circumstances. Your dedication to our students and this community is valued and appreciated beyond measure.

Information is changing rapidly and the guidance and clarification on how to handle all of this with our schools has not been entirely clear. Know that every decision is made with the health and safety of our students and staff as our No. 1 priority, always. The Board members and I are here to support you during this time and urge anyone with specific questions about school-related matters to contact your principal or an administrator at any time. We are all here for you.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the virus itself and its symptoms, your best resource is to call the New York State Department of Health Novel Coronavirus Hotline at 1-888-364-3065.

Please join me in using this time to embrace our families, in celebrating our health and resiliency, and in being thankful for a community as strong as Malverne.

Board of Education President
