Dear Parents/Guardians of Harley First and Second Graders:

In our district’s effort to recapture some of the lost instructional time following Hurricane Sandy, we have worked collaboratively with the Teachers’ Association and have added a half-day of instruction for Grades 1 and 2 students on November 20, 2012.  The information below outlines the schedule for the November 20 and 21 Conference Days.

•    Grades 1 and 2 will attend a full day of instruction on Tuesday, November 20, 2012.  The half-day schedule for the Wednesday, November 21 will remain the same. The half-day dismissal time will be at 12:20 p.m. Please do not send children to school with lunch as there will be no lunch period scheduled for this day.
•    The evening conferences on November 20, 2012 will remain the same.

The teachers have been actively preparing for these conferences, so they may provide you with important information about your child’s progress. We will continue to work together to maximize the children’s instructional time in spite of the challenges Mother Nature has sent our way. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.

Enjoy the Thanksgiving break with your families!


Lynn F. Burke
Interim Principal
