Principal's Weekly Message

December 8, 2017

Dear Parent,

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to attend the Annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance, sponsored by the Tuckahoe-Eastchester-Bronxville High Schools. Tuckahoe High School G.O. Vice-President, Jessica Berger, gave an eloquent speech about the historic day. Our senior G. O. officers also attended. Bronxville HS was the wonderful host this year.

 I’m looking forward to our annual display of musical holiday spirit at the Tuckahoe High School Winter Concert which will take place on this Tuesday at 7:30 pm in the auditorium. I hope you will join us!

I attended a Westchester Principal’s meeting last week. The issue of Vape/ecigarettes is, as you’re aware, a county-wide one and was a topic of concern. Before school opened this fall, Mr. DeBellis’ letter informed you of the disciplinary code noted in our handbook and the law signed by Governor Cuomo. We then emphasized this information, the disciplinary consequences which includes suspension, and the health risks in every student grade level assembly this September. The issue and the legal risks have also been covered in every THS health class. We continue to be as vigilant as possible in school and plan to communicate further with students. I’d ask you to discuss this matter and the risks with your child. Habits that begin outside of school can eventually impact our learning environment.

Congratulations to all our teachers who organized the holiday reading festival launch event at Barnes and Noble last Sunday! It was a wonderful afternoon and showcased the many talents of our Tuckahoe students who performed along side published authors and Broadway performers. The proceeds went to the Tuckahoe English department to expand classroom libraries for independent reading.

Regards,

Dr. Bart Linehan
