The Dobbs Ferry School District strives to develop independent, curious, and open-minded learners who think critically, work collaboratively, act ethically and are knowledgeable about the world around them.
Dear Parents & Community,
Following 15 months of Covid-19 related trauma and drama, one might think that this would be a summer to kick back and relax, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Dobbs Ferry School District is awash in construction projects on both campuses as a result of the capital improvement work approved by Dobbs Ferry voters in October 2019.
The High School/Middle School auditorium is being completely renovated, and our theater department is already making plans for a spectacular musical in spring 2022. The replacement of the Middle School roof is well underway and there is a maze of construction materials and equipment to navigate around each day. It is a huge undertaking.
At Springhurst, things are really in full swing. The sidewalk leading from Walgrove Avenue to the front of the building, and the new security upgrades to the school’s front entrance are progressing nicely. The renovations to the library are especially exciting and we can’t wait for children and staff to see this beautiful new space in the fall. It’s a bit hectic right now but it will all be worth it in a few short weeks.
We are also delighted to have these summer weeks to recharge our batteries and prepare for what will certainly continue to be challenging times for schools. With no guidance issued yet from New York State about what kinds of safety protocols will be required, there are still many unknowns. As soon as we learn anything in this regard, we will include parents in our planning as soon as possible.
We hope that you are enjoying the summer with your families and friends!
Lisa Brady, Ed.D.
