Welcome Back to School!
On behalf of the Board of Education, teachers, and staff - we welcome the community to the 2017-2018 school year. Click here to read about many new exciting programs and how Ardsley is leading the way in active learning environments and engineering.
We highly value close working relationships with our students and families fueled by open and frequent communication. We urge families to utilize all our web-based tools:
- eBlasts: You can look forward to time sensitive updates, ‘Sharing Successes’, ‘Noteworthy News’ and community events information. All contact information resides in the Parent Portal. If you have not done so, please log onto the Parent Portal and click on your child’s student id number to access your records. There, you can verify or add contact information for all family members.
- Facebook is very important to our communication strategy. We invite you to ‘Like us’ on Facebook to receive current news flashes.
- District and School Websites house a wide breadth of information. Scroll down on the home page to view announcements, calendars, and special notices. ‘Select a school’ on the upper right side of each page to easily toggle between sites. Take time to explore the different sections of the website which have been updated and contain information that is easier to find, and in most cases, in a single click.
- Class Pages, along with Google Classroom, will contain all class projects, support materials, homework assignments and more. This new platform will allow for more robust and timely communications on a class-wide basis.
