These days, if you cannot get to the parade, the parade will come to you!
That is exactly what happened on Tuesday, May 12, when teachers and staff from the Elmsford Union Free School District hosted a Staff Car Parade. The event was planned to enable teachers to share a “hello” with their students and let them know that they miss them in a safe manner - all while having some fun.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Marc Baiocco, hosted an online Coffee and Conversation session. Participants emailed questions in ahead of time covering topics such as how the remainder of the school year will go, meeting the social/emotional needs of students and more.

Knowledge is power, and students at Alexander Hamilton High School received a lesson on their civil rights and how to behave in certain situations to ensure their rights are protected.
