Welcome to School 17 where "Learning is fun!

Dear Parents & Students,

Welcome back to "In person" Learning. I am so excited for everyone to be back. WE will continue to take all necessary precautions for this to be a safe and healthy year for all.

If you receive a "parent notification letter" in your child's backpack, please fill it out and return to me.

This letter indicates that your child will receive reading instruction with me several times a week. I will work with him/her to help increase proficiency in various literacy skills.

*Please be sure to fill out and return the student compact in your child's bookbag as well.



Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you may have@ lsantuzzi-trippodo@yonkerspublicschools.org
