    Athletic Fields Improvement Project


    We continue to believe that an athletic field’s improvement project is right for our students and our schools. But, given the current economic and health crisis we believe that moving ahead with a proposition vote, at this time, is simply not the right thing to do. 

    For that reason, we are going to close out the feasibility portion of our work with a Board vote on the Environmental Impact of the athletic field’s project at our March 25th meeting.  Then, we are going to “push pause” until the time when we can have an open discussion with an engaged community.

    When we return to school, we look forward to restarting the conversation about this important improvement for our athletic and physical education programs.

  • North Salem Schools COVID-19, Coronavirus Update No. 7 March 16, 2020 

    School Closure Information
    This morning Westchester County Executive, George Latimer, conducted a conference call with Superintendents and announced that he is issuing a local emergency declaration for five days beginning Wednesday, March 18th.  This is a renewable declaration and he expects to be renewing it several times.  This now means the North Salem Schools are closed up to and including March 31st at minimum.  

    When Will We Reopen?
    The decision to reopen public schools in Westchester County will be determined by the county executive.  We are planning for the likelihood of being closed beyond March 31st. 

    180 Day Waiver
    The Governor reiterated that he will grant waivers for the required days and hours IF school districts use all available vacation and snow days first.  This is the reason why in North Salem we rescheduled all available vacation days in the calendar including spring break and Friday of Memorial Day weekend.  Unused snow days and the change of the PQ parent/teacher conference day to a student day accounts for March 23-25 at PQ. At the MSHS, we have an additional snow day, which brings us to March 23-26 as no school days.

    Student Engagement with Learning
    Beginning March 23rd, learning resources will be available on the school webpages as we transition to online learning.  The purpose of these materials is to reinforce skills previously taught as a means of staying connected to learning.  Should we remain closed for an extended period of time beyond March 31st, we will update you on additional online learning resources.  

    Career Fair
    The Career Fair scheduled for March 27th at the MSHS is canceled.

    Food Pantry
    We have arranged for “Feeding Westchester” to bring their mobile pantry to North Salem on Wednesday, March 18th and 25th from 9:00 - 11:00 am in the MSHS parking lot.  There will be a farmer’s market-type set-up with free food distribution for those in need.  The pantry will offer frozen food, dry pantry items, canned foods, etc…  Please bring bags if you have them, otherwise, they will be provided for you.  Anyone who needs food is welcome.

    State and National Testing
    Directives, recommendations, announcements regarding 3-8 State Testing, Regents, AP exams, and SATs/ACTs are being issued frequently, sometimes multiple times a day. We will keep you posted as information regarding testing is made available to us. 

    Technology Access 
    Families who are still in need of a district device and/or Internet access should complete the technology survey found on the MSHS and PQ website under Announcements.  ONLY complete the survey if you need a device and/or Internet access.  We will let you know the date and time we will be issuing equipment in a later update.

    If you are in need of WIFI, some companies are offering free service to eligible families.  Parents should contact your cable or cell phone provider for information regarding free WIFI services. 

    CSE Meetings
    All CSE meetings are canceled for the next two weeks.  Maria Bruen will be in contact with parents in the near future regarding rescheduling these meetings.

    Section One announced on March 16th (today) that all scrimmages and games will be postponed until March 30th where the Section One Executive Committee will re-evaluate the Spring Season.
    As of today, all practices, scrimmages and games in the North Salem Schools are suspended until further notice. Captain's practices are not permitted.

    Board of Education Meeting
    The Board of Education Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Match 18th is canceled.  The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 25th.  The items on this week's agenda will be moved to the agenda on the 25th.  Time and location will be sent out in one of our next updates.

  • Dear Students and Parents,

    Our World Language Department offers our students the opportunity to gain an added distinction on their diploma.  The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.  The intent of the NYSSB is to encourage the study of languages; identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers; provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission; prepare students with twenty-first century skills; recognize the value of foreign and native language instruction in schools; and affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.  Please visit this site for further information:
